• read faster

“Very knowledgeable, funny, engaging and patient” is a typical testimonial.
Eileen offers a range of courses to suit the needs of her diverse roster of clients. But they all have one thing in common: they help people understand and get the best performance from the on-board computer called the brain.
“Most people spend more time and money tuning their cars than taking care of their brains,” says Eileen. “With a little teaching or coaching it’s amazing how you can boost the performance of your brain.”
Eileen is certified and experienced in using a range of tools and techniques to help people think more effectively. These include:
• Speed Reading & Memory Techniques
• Six Thinking Hats™
• Mind Mapping™
• Language And Behaviour Profile™
• Myers-Briggs Type Indicator™
• Strategic Directions™
In 2009 Eileen designed a one-day course called Get More Power from Your Brain. It was a success. But when a course member asked for suggestions for follow-up reading, Eileen couldn’t think of one book that covered all the elements. So she wrote Get More Power from Your Brain in 2012 (due to be published in 2013).
Eileen is a Certified Human Resources Professional. She has a B.A. in Psychology and a B.Ed. from Dalhousie University, and a Master in Education degree from Mount Saint Vincent University.
