"It is fun and quick moving! Really enjoying it!
"This is one of the best courses I have taken on Udemy. I hope to practice what I have learned which should help improve my memory."

This course will get you kick-started on improving your memory. There is no strong scientific evidence that memory apps work. That is why every technique I teach is designed to be applied in the real world. Don't become good at games - learn to apply memory techniques to real life challenges. 

To get you started I am going to show you how you can recall the day of the week of any date in the years 2016 - 2019. It will take you less than an hour to master.  Imagine meeting someone and telling them what day their birthday will fall on next year. It's a great way to overcome awkwardness and get a conversation going. Plus they will look at you in  different light. 


  1. Boost working memory
  2. Great icebreaker
  3. Improve your productivity

As your memory improves, so will your self-confidence, clarity and communication.

Who this course is for:

  • Thought Leaders who want techniques to improve their memory.
  • A very few people in the world have Highly Superior Autobiographical Memory. The rest of us can use this technique as a starting point. Once you can recall important dates, you can add associations.
