Why do people attend university or go on courses?

In part it’s to learn new information, new content. However it’s also to learn to think more effectively; to improve the quality of their thinking.

As the quality of the results we achieve is largely a result of the quality of thinking that we do, improving the quality of our thinking as well as learning new information is a priority for many.

If either of these things are true for you, this webinar will be a great investment of your time. 

As a complementary webinar bonus, webinar participants will also have the opportunity to complete the metacognitive psychometric, Thinking Styles™ if they wish to, and receive their personal profile and report after they have attended the webinar.

This is a one hour webinar session. A recording of the session will be available afterwards for anyone who registesrs. 

Take a look at a Q&A session with Dr Fiona Beddoes-Jones interviewed by our journalist team for the Psychologist magazine.
