Robert Gray

Kickstart Your Whole Brain Potential

Bob Gray CSP HoF

There is no such thing as a ‘bad’ memory...just an untrained one. Bob Gray has a trained one. Both professionally and socially it has allowed Bob to build stronger relationships through his ability to remember important information about clients and customers. For as long as he can remember Bob has been told that he must have been born with this ability. If that were true he certainly wouldn’t have been able to teach memory development all these years. You see it isn’t a gift; a trained memory is a skill set which EVERYONE is capable of achieving, and in 60 minutes Bob will show you the incredible untapped potential we all have with respect to memory and recall.

Business is based on credibility and relationships, both of which can be greatly enhanced through a ‘trained’ memory. Like anything worthwhile it takes effort, desire and of course the tools. Bob cannot teach effort and desire, but he can hand you the tools in a fun, entertaining and interactive keynote!

Bob's ultimate goal in every presentation is to have the audience walk away with an understanding of this incredible untapped ability, which can have a profound effect on both their professional and social ‘bottom line’.
