"I took the inGeniusly course because I wanted to learn techniques that would better my memory, and because I had heard good recommendations about it. I wanted to learn more reading techniques because I was reading quite slowly and I also wanted to better my ability to retain the information. It was difficult for me to pay attention to what the book was trying to say.

After the course I started reading a lot more using the techniques. Firstly I started by creating a habit of reading a book a week. This meant that I improved the speed and the quality of my understanding. I am very glad I progressed so quickly and I was able to see tangible results from the course. Now I also apply the reading techniques to learn more about the stock market, which I realise I need to pay a lot of attention to, in order to fully take in. By using the concentration technique I am able to better comprehend the information. Regarding memory, I have enjoyed the journey of learning different hooks, creating stories, storing things into long term memory and combining all of the techniques to create the memory palace which I have been expanding even after the speech test. I frequently use the palace to memorise all the information about cryptocurrency and the stock market. The speech test was very challenging for me because I had to learn it word for word, and I didn’t do myself any favours by choosing a complicated one, with ancient Greek in it. But the more I went on learning it, the easier it became and the more fun it was. Being able to present it in front of everyone and remember all the ancient Greek terms was very rewarding.

I have greatly appreciated the skills that the inGeniusly course has equipped me with. I look forward to utilising them more to progress in my career and expand my general knowledge. 😊"

"The course had a nice flow, everything was explained in a nice, slow, thorough and comprehensive manner. The thing I enjoyed the most was the active interaction we had frequently (ie. through the games or tests) with both students and mentors/skillers to apply the techniques/skills and test our comprehension in a fun and enjoyable manner."

"I loved the part on memory techniques and the facilitators' ways of explaining. The breakout rooms with the skillers really helped me to build confidence away from the group. I loved the supportive group. I enjoyed all of it."

"I loved how we were encouraged to speak up if we did not understand something and to be confident in ourselves. I also loved the constant reminders not to set limits for ourselves and always have a positive spirit towards everything. Everyone was so friendly and even though I hadn't met some people in person, it felt like we had known each other for a while and were in the same room. It definitely felt like a good place to make mistakes and learn from them because everyone wants to see you do well."

Travel Agent

"I have been an expat for more than 20 years living in different countries. I travel the world because of my wanderlust, my work, and because I thrive in an international society. I originally took the inGeniusly course in London with my kids to help my younger son who was not reaching his potential at school. I did not understand back then how much this course meant to me. In the past there were no online systems like the ones they have today that allow you to focus on the techniques again.

Retaking this course in the middle of a pandemic was the best thing to I did in 2020. I really wanted to become organised with work and my personal life, but my time management skills were nonexistent. I used to only be able to manage my work, but now, with the desire technique from inGeniusly, I can plan my week with work and also implement personal goals every week. This has made a huge difference in my results! I have a goal to achieve 80% of my plan every single week, and I do!!

My mentor helped me to set my goals, and surprisingly, I started to achieve them quickly after. Before the course, I could read 3 books in a year. I used to think I was such a slow learner in general because I face challenges with my dyslexia, but I am now reading 2 books each month which has really enriched my mind.

The memory techniques have allowed me to remember things for much longer. I absolutely love the hook system. The process of changing codes or numbers at home or work has become so easy because I can simply memorise them instantly. I have changed the way I take notes, read, and have improved my overall learning process. Studying is now so exciting and joyful that I have fallen in love with learning. inGeniusly has help me to find my unique study style, and offers so much more than just learning.

Even though I have been doing Toastmasters for 5 years, I could never remember my speeches. With the help of inGeniusly I managed to memorise a 15 min speech word for word over 5 days, and was able to feel confident while delivering it! The results have amazed me and I am now looking forward to starting my next step.

inGeniusly is a place where I can see the way others have made an impact in my life, and learn how I can improve others. The passion they share makes it feel like a space I feel I can belong to."

"After the test, I am gobsmacked, I really didn't think I could remember 20 words, even just before the test but, I flew through it..."

"It stretched my mind in so many ways I felt were not possible. "

"The fun element maintained throughout learning really surprised me."

"I took the inGeniusly course to become a better learner all around. Before taking the course, I found it difficult remembering things I read: articles, books, textbooks etc. With the mind map techniques I learnt from the course, I am able to assimilate information faster and remember much more than I used to, which enables me to participate in class discussions about reading assignments which I was not able to do before because I could not remember the text I read.

I also used the techniques to complete a python book in 2 weeks, something I would have found daunting before the course. Additionally, the memory techniques enabled me to memorise a 15 minute speech with ease. I doubted I could remember because generally I get very nervous when taking to people, but the memory palace helped me to have the certainty to remember everything.

At the moment I am completing my goal to learn 3 physics books in 2 months. I already finished 1 on astrophysics and the mind maps and speed reading helped me to go fast through the pages. I am sure I am going to finish them on time. As I practice the techniques more, I’m excited to see more achievements in the near future."

"I loved the support of the team, the respect for each person and that questions were answered. There was lots of practice time. Yaw was a great senior trainer and you felt you were in safe hands."

"I liked everything about the course. Especially learning how to take more effective notes and mind maps. Thank you so much for this course, I loved the energy that all the mentors and skillers had, it has been an amazing journey."

"Learning new techniques and seeing how to apply them straight away was great. The games are really nice and they create humour and fun, besides teaching important skills."

Accountant

"I work in Banking as an accountant with nearly 30 years’ experience. I attended a inGeniusly masterclass at work which included a demonstration of one of the techniques. Two people were able to recall a randomly selected 20 digit number…. I was intrigued. I did some research on the company and attended a learning assessment delivery. This assessed my learning style and the goals I wanted to pursue. I discussed with the mentor how the course could benefit me.

The course itself was intense; they pack a lot into 3 days. It is very well structured, easy to follow and most importantly it is fun! Due to Covid-19 the course was conducted over ZOOM. I was sceptical at first but surprised at how well this worked. Interaction was high, with a diverse mix of participants who were based in a number of different countries and at different stages in their careers. At the end of the 2nd day I found myself unknowingly recalling the first 50 digits of Pi.

I was shocked at the progress we had made in such a short time period.

Both my memory retention and reading speed have improved significantly; I’m able to give presentations rather than reading them off a script; I now read more often for pleasure and not just on holiday; I spend less time reviewing my email as my speed reading has improved and I’m more able to identify key information. In addition, post-course sessions have built on the techniques enabling me to memorise and deliver a 7-minute speech word for word.

I would definitely recommend the course. I wish I had been aware of it much earlier in my career. You will learn new techniques that can be applied in both your work and private life. You will also grow in confidence and see you are capable of much more than you ever realised."

"I loved the interactive nature. The mentors and skillers' enthusiasm was infectious. I still can't realise how much content is covered, and I know it all!"

"The mentors and skillers were great and everything was very clear and undrstandable. The course was interactive and fun."

"I loved the opportunity to practice the techniques and play fun games (enjoyed every single part of the course too!)"

"A friend recommended doing the inGeniusly course because he had completed it himself and was thrilled with the results he achieved. I was immediately inspired by his enthusiasm, so I booked myself on the course.

Having completed the first weekend, I was impressed and energised by what I had achieved. In the following weeks and months, I fine tuned the skills with guidance from the inGeniusly team. From the outset, the results were remarkable. At the beginning, my reading speed was around 250 words per minute (wpm). Now, depending on the subject matter, my reading speed ranges from 500 - 1000 wpm.

The most notable difference is when I’m reading news articles or technical documents for work. I’ve found that I’m able to really drink in the information and separate out what information is needed and what can be discarded. That skill has been vital in saving time and reducing stress in all areas of my life. I also find that I now enjoy reading so much more, and I regularly have several books on the go at once. I really enjoy dipping into them in the evenings, and it’s so much better than looking at a screen late at night.

Work life is definitely more enjoyable since learning these techniques. I regularly notice that I’m much better at remembering phone numbers, code numbers and people’s names very quickly. It’s a valuable skill when dealing with the pressures of professional life. I’m looking forward to applying these tools and techniques even more - both in work and generally. Given how much I’ve gained so far, I know there’s still a huge scope for improving my learning abilities. Going forward, I’m significantly more enthusiastic about learning new subject areas and bolstering my learning skillsets.

My advice to any new students doing this course would be: Go with the flow and embrace the techniques, and above all - trust in the instructors!
