Could you use a better memory? Would you like to be able to recall a whole shopping list without writing it down? Would you like to store more facts or data in your head and be able to recall them instantly? How valuable would that be to you? What a confidence booster!
According to your presenter Bob Reed, author and head coach for CANI Life Coaching, “Almost everyone has a perfect memory. What they don’t have are good systems for memorization”.
This free mini-seminar is totally interactive, fun and entertaining and you will walk away from it with an excellent system for remembering details and lists! But don’t bring paper or a pencil to this session. All you need to bring is your desire to improve that will be enough!
