Learn how to write faster

would you like to double your handwriting speed?

Did you know that the average handwriting speed for an adult is around 20 words per minute (wpm)?

Speaking rates can vary from 100-400 wpm.

For example, conversational speech falls between 120-200 wpm; audio books are between 150-160 wpm and commentators are within the 250-400 wpm range.

As you can see there is a big gap between the written and spoken word!

Speedwriting Training Course Outline


The aim of this Speedwriting course is to provide you with an immediate improvement in your ability to take accurate notes at meetings, seminars and group discussions.

The first day concentrates on the theory, ensuring you know how to abbreviate words. Improving speed and accuracy is the greatest challenge and this is the main focus of day two. Utilising dictation exercises at differing speeds will ensure that you have the confidence to trust and apply your newly learned skills.

It is recommended that both Speedwriting days are taken together but if this proves to be a problem they can be taken as individual day courses.
