Benefits of training your memory...
When properly applied, memory techniques allow you to:
- Remember names and faces of people you meet. The sweetest word in the English Language is the sound of your own name. Remembering the names of the people you meet is vital for business networking and relationship building.
- Retain information from training sessions. Around 80% of annual training budgets are wasted because people forget the information covered during training sessions. Increase the value of training sessions by increasing your recall.
- Remember lists - whether it is a to do list, a shopping list, or a list of things employees must do in case of emergency, these techniques greatly improve peoples ability to remember items in sequence.
Tip:- Use Mind Maps® to aid your recall in many situations - meetings, seminars, books or professional journals.

Did you know...
Memory techniques have been around for thousands of years but it is only in recent times that competitive memory events have emerged.
The first official memory competitions began in the 1990s when international author and lecturer Tony Buzan organised the first World Memory Championships in London,
Tony, a leading authority on thinking and the brain, worked with memorisers to create a set of rules and standards for the different disciplines which today form the basis of memory competitions throughout the world.
Jennifer Goddard found out about these events and founded the Australian Memory Championships in 2001.
Now in its eighth year, the Australian Memory Championships continue to be organised and sponsored by the Buzan Centre Australia/NZ and
Jennifer is now the only Senior
Arbiter Level 3 for the World Memory Championships - a fancy name for
she who organises things at the highest level.
Memory sports continue to grow in popularity worldwide. Every year competitors travel from around the globe to compete at The World Memory Championships.
