Memory Seminar – April 21st

IMG_5262Last night’s memory seminar with U.S. Memory Champion, Chester Santos, was amazing! The night started off with a cocktail hour at the beautiful The Box SF. LAM and NSHMBA members mingled and interested

During the cocktail hour, which was a lot of fun, Chester made it a point to introduce himself and mingle with everyone in the room.  His seminar started with him having everyone stand up and cover their name tag.   Astonishingly, he proceeded to correctly name 69 out of 70 people present at the seminar without any hesitation!  He claims that he didn’t actually meet the one person that he couldn’t name.  Let’s give him the benefit of the doubt.  😉

Chester then explained that the seminar would be very interactive and wouldn’t involve him simply standing up and talking the whole time.  He led the audience through a warm-up visualization exercise and then had the entire audience perfectly memorize and recite a random list of 15 words in less than 5 minutes!  The memory champion then went on to teach two other incredible memory techniques that allow people to utilize both sides of their brain to encode and retrieve information.  Everyone was amazed by what they are actually capable of remembering with the proper training.

Chester concluded his seminar by teaching some practical techniques to help us better remember names and faces.  Along with the tips, he explained why a trained memory can go a long way towards boosting your business.  Chester quoted the famous book, “How to Win Friends & Influence People”, and emphasized that “the sweetest sound to a person in any language is the sound of their own name and that everyone’s favorite subject is themselves”, so remembering peoples’ names and other information about them helps you to build better personal and business relationships.  This is crucial to getting the most out of networking.  Chester also talked about how students and business professionals can impress at school and at work by having instant mental access to a very impressive amount of information.  The seminar was fun, educational, and just overall awesome!
