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

A trained memory is a business asset attainable by everyone. Bob Gray can make this happen for you at your next convention or meeting.

Network Like a Millionaire and Never Forget a Name
You will love networking after this. With this version of his 90 minute keynote, workshop or concurrent session, 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 but can’t remember his name, or hers? Socially, this can be embarrassing, and in business, 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 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.
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. Having been taught the system, participants are quickly and easily able to recall both first and last names of several new acquaintances as they are introduced during the presentation. It’s a hilarious system that will have the audience in hysterics… and it works!

• [Master] Class
Half- or Full-day Session, All Techniques Covered
Master class: memory’s best kept secret. In this half- or full-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. This session can be customized to support your sales team.
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, was developed over three hundred years ago and is often considered to be the single most powerful memory system ever devised. Yet, until now, has been known by only a handful of scholars and experts. Bob retrieved the Phonetic Index from history’s dustbin, revamped it, and made it directly applicable for today’s business leaders. This system gives the user the ability to recall the biggest stumper of them all – numerical information. On a basic level, the Phonetic Index makes the memorization of phone numbers and serial numbers as easy as smiling. Using it in conjunction with some of Bob’s other techniques, it becomes a valuable resource, allowing the student to recall deep banks of information. As an example of this, Bob demonstrates how he himself has memorized the capitals, population and square mileage of every nation on earth, as well as the major world events for every year of the twentieth century. In the workshops, groups never fail to amaze themselves by memorizing, both forwards and in reverse, a randomly generated thirty-digit number. It is an exercise that shows the incredible, untapped potential in each of us.
