Lex McKee

This workshop is presented by Lex McKee, author of ‘The Accelerated Trainer’

and ‘7 Ways to Upgrade Your Brain’. Lex is CEO of Entertrainment Ltd and

its new iCademy, organisations specialising in applications of Accelerated

Learning. As a Producer, Lex also creates audio, graphic and video-based

materials to support the integration of Accelerated Learning.

 

“Lex took my training and development team through an accelerated

trainer’s course and the impact was immediate. Not only did it inspire and

enthuse the trainers, but they are also now getting fantastic feedback from

customers. Lex's techniques have resulted in comments from participants

such as 'the best course I have ever been on' , and departmental managers

have told me about the difference the training makes to their staff

compared to more 'traditional' courses. The accelerated learning techniques

mean that learning really sticks, and this in turn means better performance

back in the workplace.” Ron Skea, Dundee City Council
