Bob Gray, now a motivational keynote speaker and memory expert, discovered his first memory technique when he was seven. He was given a magic book that showed him how to remember a twenty-item list. Shortly thereafter he was called on to ‘do the memory trick’ at family parties and gatherings. Funny, unique and interactive in his entertaining keynotes and workshops, Bob reveals the untapped potential in each of us. His empowering systems and their many applications in the business world give participant’s immediate ‘walk away’ value.
A recognized authority on memory systems, Bob has spent the last twenty five years traveling the globe entertaining, keynote speaking, and training corporations, governments and associations to adapt memory systems for their particular needs. He has developed a series of sales oriented personal development keynotes and workshops, which have been popular on six continents, as well as writing the best selling book “Right Brain Rapid Recall“.
When Bob is not presenting or developing his memory systems, he is an avid golfer and enjoys playing squash and blues piano. He resides outside of Toronto with his wife and their daughter who has been memorizing a list of twenty items at family parties since she was six. Bob also enjoys setting new records for the people at Guinness, and is currently training himself for ‘Speed Calendar Memorization,’ another mental feat he is happy to teach to interested parties.
His many TV appearances include, ‘Ripley’s Believe It Or Not,’ ABC Regis Philbin, NBC Today Show, CBC and Britain’s BBC.
Presentation Description & Topics
Be Head Strong…your safety gears are between your ears!
In the safety industry a trained memory is an asset second to none, strict adherence to procedures is paramount, a forgotten step or out of place procedure can be disastrous. How do we keep our brains sharp? If only there was an instruction manual for our brains. Who knows how many “features”, “functions” and “options” we have been neglecting? Or how our personal and business lives may be augmented, streamlined or made more efficient by a better understanding of the programming? Think of this highly interactive, humorous presentation as that instruction manual that has long been missing. With it you will learn to take advantage of the #1 option so often ignored, the incredible power of your memory. After Bob delivers two powerful memory demonstrations, which never fail to astonish, he shares the fun and practical ‘Chain’ system. A system dating all the way back to ancient Greece, which is an invaluable tool that can be adapted for memorizing speeches, presentations, lists, names and faces and most importantly, procedures!
I’m no good with names…but I never forget a face!
In this 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!
*Bob’s presentations can be tailored to suit your agenda. His sessions range from 30 minutes to a full day. Even when booked solely as an entertainer, Bob still manages to impart practical techniques that benefit his audience both socially and professionally. To suit more cautious budgets, Bob is available for a keynote followed by a continuing workshop later that same day.
