First General Session
Wednesday, February 20, 2013
9:00 – 10:30 a.m.
Keynote Speaker: Bob Gray, “Welcome to Your Brain”
In this interactive Keynote Presentation, Bob reveals the untapped memory potential in each of us.
He begins by sharing the story of how his unique skills enabled him to immigrate into Canada. The fact that he was able to write extemporaneously upside down (plus upside down and backwards with both hands and feet while blindfolded and speaking phonetically backwards) pretty much proved to a stunned immigration official that he was not taking a job from a Canadian – or for that matter, anyone else on the planet!
Bob then delivers two incredibly powerful memory demonstrations, which never fail to astonish. After entertaining the audience with his own memory, he enriches their minds by teaching the fun and practical ‘Chain’ system. A system dating all the way back to ancient Greece, which is an invaluable tool that can be adapted for memorizing speeches, presentations, lists and more!
In his follow on workshop titled “I’m No Good With Names….But I Never Forget A Face!” He will share a powerful system to help overcome the #1 Recall system both socially and professionally…..remembering names. Bob reveals a wonderful method to easily triple your recall and store into memory the names of new friends and business acquaintances. Having been taught the system, participants are quickly and easily able to recall both first and last names of several new acquaintances as they are introduced during the presentation. A fun interactive system….and it works! Bob will also share how to take advantage of Facebook and Twitter, to enhance your own “personal computer” and its “hard drive” and increase its power and abilities still further.
Second General Session – Awards Luncheon and Annual Meeting
Thursday, February 21, 2013
11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
Keynote Speaker: Walter Bond, “America’s Accountability Leader”
After graduating from the University of Minnesota with a BA in Communications, Walter Bond overcame a devastating injury to become the first NBA rookie free agent ever to start on opening night. Walter, the young man who never, ever gave up on his dreams, went on to have an eight-year professional basketball career, playing alongside such NBA greats as Karl Malone and John Stockton as a guard for the Utah Jazz and the Detroit Pistons.
Toward the end of his basketball career, Walter developed the ability to apply on-the-court success and teamwork to the business world when he and his wife became owners of a national franchise. Walter changed his profession but never changed his winning attitude.
