Did you know that most people have a preferred learning style?
They can be defined as:

- Visual learner – Learns best when things are written down or presented within a visual format (pictures / diagrams)
- Kinesthetic learner – Learns best in “hands on” settings where they can practice the practical skills needed to learn a subject.
If you are an Auditory or Visual learner (or even a combination) you’ll find our Masterminds extremely an extremely useful resource.
