Digital Amnesia: How Technology is Stealing Your Brain (and how to steal it back)

Digital Amnesia: The act of forgetting something important because you trust a connected device!

Since we’ve been able to place more memory power in the palm of our hand than was used to land a man on the moon, we’ve banished our own memory to the back burner. The more we rely on technology to retrieve information, the more we erode the process to recall that information ‘naturally.’

So is this a problem? Well, here’s just one scenario. You have a pre-arranged appointment, you have reviewed all the pertinent information about that client/customer, you’re able to ask after their spouse/partner, children, even their favourite sports team. You feel you have a great relationship.

A month later you bump into them unexpectedly, not only have you ‘forgotten’ their spouse/partner’s, children’s, names…you can’t even recall THEIR name. How’s that relationship now? How helpful is that device now?

In this highly interactive, empowering, and fun, presentation, Bob shows you how to keep your memory in shape, how to steal your brain back from technology…and how you’ll never need to say “Sorry, I forgot your name” again.

This same method, which is the foundation of all memory systems dating back thousands of years, can also be adapted to recall any sequential information such as presentations, lists, safety procedures and more.

Bob Gray CSP HoF

Memory Expert | Guinness Record Holder

Bob Gray is like your favourite 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.

Background

Bob 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.

Encouraged by praise at home, he began to find memory techniques could have a valuable role in other aspects of his life. With a little ingenuity, he adapted the ‘memory trick’ to help him with his work at school. The reward was a significant rise in his grades.

Years later, Bob immigrated to Canada from his native England. At the time he was working as an entertainer, and he had to prove to Immigration that he wasn’t taking a job away from a Canadian. As the Immigration authority quickly learned, he wasn’t taking a job away from anyone else in the world! Traveling and entertaining under the stage name of ‘Backwards Bob the Memory Man,’ Bob demonstrated the unique abilities that have netted him a place in the Guinness Book of World Records and recent appearances on Ripley’s Believe It Or NotThe Steve Harvey Show, The NBC Today Show, BBC, CBC, and many more.
