You have just been introduced to a group of 5 people, all potential clients, and two minutes can’t remember any of their names.

A client asks you for certain product information. Not quite sure of the answer, you offer, "Let me look that up, and I'll get back to you." Then you forget to follow up.

When common memory lapses like these occur, it not only leads to frustration, embarrassment and lost carries a negative image. Conversely, an excellent memory conveys the image of success and of someone who is in control.

Digital Amnesia: How technology is stealing your brain (and how to steal it back)

Digital Amnesia: The act of forgetting something important because you trust a connected device!

Since we’ve been able to place more memory power in the palm of our hand than was used to land a man on the moon, we’ve banished our own memory to the back burner. The more we rely on technology to retrieve information, the more we erode the process to recall that information ‘naturally.’

So is this a problem? Well, here’s just one scenario. You have a pre-arranged appointment, you have reviewed all the pertinent information about that client/customer, you’re able to ask after their spouse/partner, children, even their favourite sports team. You feel you have a great relationship.

A month later you bump into them unexpectedly, not only have you ‘forgotten’ their spouse/partner’s, children’s, names…you can’t even recall THEIR name. How’s that relationship now? How helpful is that device now?

In this highly interactive, empowering, and fun, presentation, Bob shows you how to keep your memory in shape, how to steal your brain back from technology…and how you’ll never need to say “Sorry, I forgot your name” again.

This same method, which is the foundation of all memory systems dating back thousands of years, can also be adapted to recall any sequential information such as presentations, lists, safety procedures and more.


181 minutes to Total Recall:

In this half-day workshop, Bob will introduce the group to four major memory systems. Expanding on his ninety-minute keynote, he will introduce them to the Peg System and The Phonetic Index. The Peg System gives the student the ability to memorize schedules, calendars, meetings, feature lists and rules and regulations. It is one of the easiest time savers you'll ever learn. The Phonetic Index, which is often considered to be the single most powerful memory system ever devised, was developed over three hundred years ago. This system gives the user the ability to recall the biggest stumper of them all - numerical information.


I'm No Good With Names But I Never Forget a Face -

With this longer version of his 45-60 minute keynote, Bob is able to share the #1 memory problem in business today - how to recall clients' names. How often have you bumped into clients, or customers, 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 or her name? Socially, this can be extremely embarrassing, but in business, it can be disastrous. In his amusing, unusual and empowering presentation, Bob reveals a wonderful method to easily recall and store into memory the names of new friends and business acquaintances. It's a hilarious system that will have the audience in hysterics...and it works!


The Turbo Charged Brain:

In this interactive Keynote Presentation, Bob reveals the untapped memory potential in each of us. Bob delivers two incredibly powerful memory demonstrations which never fail to astonish. After entertaining the audience with his own memory, he enriches their minds by teaching the hilarious and practical 'Chain' system. (A system dating all the way back to ancient Greece, it is an invaluable tool for memorizing speeches, presentations lists, complex equations and more!) Audience members always leave grinning and eager to test their new skills. Are you ready to accelerate you memory into rapid recall? The skills lie a short keynote away.
