Bob Gray

Memory Expert & The Turbocharged Brain

Bio

How often have you bumped into a client or customer, but for the life of you, you can’t remember their name? Socially, this can be embarrassing, but in business, it can be disastrous. Speaker Bob Gray teaches audiences the techniques they need to unlock their memory potential to be more professional, effective, efficient, and ultimately: more profitable.  +

Bob Gray is like your favorite college professor but with a sense of humor. An unforgettable mix of fun, interaction, and laughs; Bob is changing the stigma of Memory Experts. Not the pocket protector, white coat wearing kind; he immediately dispels the mystery behind memory. “An excellent memory isn’t a gift, it’s attainable by everyone.”

With previous success as an award-winning sales executive, Bob understands the importance of staff/clients/customers not feeling like a number, a sale, or just your 2:30pm appointment. He puts it simply: “having a trained memory in business is like going from ABCs to PhD.”

With over 30 years’ experience as an international speaker, Gray has taught his innovative memory systems to countless Fortune 500 and 100 companies in more than 20 countries across six continents. His unique abilities and memory demonstrations have netted him a place in the Guinness Book of World Records and international TV appearances including Ripley’s Believe It or Not, The Steve Harvey Show, The BBC and The Today Show on NBC.  --

KEYNOTES & WORKSHOPS:

[Face] to Face
Network Like a Millionaire & Never Forget a Name

90 minute fun, interactive keynote

You will love networking after this. With this 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!  --

[Experience] the Power of Connections
Accelerate Your Memory Into Rapid Recall

60 minute keynote - Fun, with walk-away value

Take your connections to the next level. In this 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, which is an invaluable tool for memorizing speeches, presentations lists, complex equations and more!)

Members of the audience always leave grinning and eager to test their new skills. Watch them practice recall at conferences, on the road, at home, and at the office.

Are you ready to accelerate you memory into rapid recall? The skills lie a short keynote away.  --

The Master Program
1/2 Day Interactive Workshop

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. 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.  --

Bob’s Brain App

We live in a world where technology changes at an incredible rate. Every year newer and faster computers and more sophisticated media applications emerge, often in the most unlikely of places and with the most incredible abilities. With each of these new technologies, comes a period of learning and adaptation when we read instruction manuals, attend seminars or seek online help. This only makes sense. Yet oddly, we almost never make the effort to learn about the most sophisticated and adaptable piece of technology ever given to us…our brain.  +

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 Bob’s keynotes and workshops as that instruction manual you have long been missing. With it you will learn to take advantage of options that have been so often ignored, such as the incredible power of your memory. By increasing your ability to remember clients and customers names, faces and other vital information, you will find other aspects of your business life likewise improved. New memory strategies will lead to increased confidence, awareness and mental organization, leading to more effective leadership, innovation and planning.

Our world is also one of converging media, where various technologies and forms of communication are becoming increasingly integrated. Yet this media must ultimately converge with our brains if it is to be any use at all. Learn how to take advantage of Facebook, Linked In and Twitter, to enhance your own “personal computer” and its “hard drive” and increase its power and abilities still further.

Too often social media is used as a crutch for a neglect of our own brain and its incredible, untapped resources. Learn how it can be used instead to augment your brain to not only increase recollection, but also to build confidence, assertiveness and give yourself the advantage in any social or business situation.

If you use just 20% of the systems taught and apply them only 30% of the time, you will see dramatic results.

Learn how to:

  • Increase by 300-400% your recall for the #1 memory problem facing us all socially and professionally: client names and faces.
  • Learn how social media can enhance your recall of names and faces and other valuable client information.
  • Learn “whole brain” techniques which will increase efficiency, effectiveness and professionalism, resulting in greater leadership abilities, innovation and strategies.
  • Too often the new social media is used as a crutch for a neglect of our own brain and its incredible, untapped resources. Learn how it can be used instead to augment your brain to not only increase recollection, but also to build confidence, assertiveness and give yourself the advantage in any social or business situation.  --

We hold annual forums for our external clients, and these forums always include a guest speaker. We booked Bob to be our guest speaker with the caveat that he "blows our guests away with something useful, entertaining and little bit different". Bob delivered on all three counts, and our clients provided nothing but rave reviews. It was a most successful day.
