Scott Bornstein, renowned for his exclusive MemoryPower & Mind-Mapping methodologies was the speaker at the September EO learning event.
He astounded the crowd with a couple of incredible demonstrations of memory and recall and informed us that most of us only use three percent of our brain’s capacity.
Scott said, “Nothing makes a greater first – and lasting – impression than to confidently remember another person’s name.”
Here are his six steps to remembering people’s names and faces:
- Pay attention to hear the name
- Repeat the name clearly
- Observe for dominant features and facial characteristics
- Associate the name or initial to the person’s features when possible
- Use the name in the course of conversation or to yourself
- Write the name down and review the name seven times over the next 10 days, and once a month thereafter
Now if only I could remember all of that.
