Since time immemorial, man has tried to understand what memory is, how it works and how to enhance it. It is an important part of what makes us truly human, and yet it is one of the most elusive and misunderstood of human attributes.
The study of human memory stretches back at least 2,000 years to Aristotle’s early attempts to understand memory where he compared the human mind to a blank slate believing that all humans are born free of any knowledge and are merely the sum of their experiences.
However, in today’s modern society where technology, such as mobile ‘phones, laptops and electronic diaries, which we use to help order our complex lives, can in fact reduce our powers of memory. Many of us no longer memorise even key telephone numbers, as we rely on our mobile devices to do it for us; reducing the number of times that we use our memory can have a long term and profound impact on our ability to remember.
This Market Briefing will introduce and explore memory skills to enable people to use a combination of left-brain logic and facts with right brain emotions and images to achieve a structured format for easy recall.
Our speaker, Helen Whiten, will help the audience to develop their own system to recollect impressive lists of facts and data and to use a range of memory enhancement techniques to remember names and faces. The event will also investigate the pegging system (based on phonetic sounds) which helps to recall lists of information and facts easily and at will.
Helen Whitten is an Accredited Coach and Mediator and is also a facilitator, writer, speaker and trainer.
