Bob Gray – Making Memorable Connections 
Bob Gray discovered his first memory technique when he was seven. He was given a magic book that showed him how to remember a twenty-item list. Shortly thereafter he was called on to ‘do the memory trick’ at family parties.
Encouraged by praise at home, he began to find memory techniques could have a valuable role in other aspects of his life. With a little ingenuity, he adapted the ‘memory trick’ to help him with his work at school. The reward was a significant rise in his grades.
Years later, Bob immigrated to Canada from England as an entertainer and had to prove that he wasn’t taking a job away from a Canadian. As the Immigration authority quickly learned, he wasn’t taking a job away from anyone else in the world for his unique abilities have netted him a place in the Guinness Book of World Records and appearances on The Steve Harvey Show, ‘Ripley’s Believe it Or Not, the CBC, BBC and The NBC Today Show.
For over 25 years Bob has travelled across 6 continents entertaining and teaching memory development keynotes and workshops. He is a Certified Speaking Professional (the highest earned designation in the speaking profession) and in 2006 was inducted into the Canadian Speaking Hall of Fame.
