Bob Gray : Super Memory

Funny, unique and interactive in his entertaining presentations, Bob Gray, a ''Guinness World Record Holder'', reveals the untapped memory potential in each of us. In his empowering presentation, Bob reveals a wonderful method to easily recall and store into memory the names of new friends and acquaintances.

How often have you bumped into clients or someone you know you have been introduced to, perhaps two or three times before, but for the life of you, can't remember his name, or hers? And the harder you try to remember, the farther it seems to slip from your mind? Socially, this can be extremely embarrassing, but in the workplace, it can be disastrous. With our lives already so hectic, and the number of people who are important to us increasing every day, we need an instant and easy way to keep each and every one of them active in our memory. The sweetest sound to someone is the sound of his or her own name. By forgetting a person's name, you show not only a lack of respect, but you might just as well say that this individual is of no importance to you. Conversely, by recalling a correct name, especially after only one introduction, you will not only engage and flatter its owner, but you will be remembered for your thoughtful interest.
Participants will learn how to:

  • Increase recall for people's names by 300-400%
  • Use powerful memory systems to save time and money.
  • Better understand how the brain works to maximize potential.
  • Recall lists, agendas, dates, schedules.
  • Enhance job performance.
  • Increase productivity.
  • Increase client service.
  • Develop better relationships.
  • For fun, memorize the 2009 Calendar.

It is one of the easiest time savers you'll ever learn.
