Bob Gray CSP HoF Biography

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 and gatherings.

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 his native England. At the time he was working as an entertainer, and he had to prove to immigration 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! Traveling and entertaining under the stage name of 'Backwards Bob the Memory Man,' Bob demonstrated the unique abilities that have netted him a place in the "Guinness Book of World Records" and a recent appearance on "Ripley's Believe It Or Not."

For the first several years after arriving in Canada, he traveled throughout North America, appearing in comedy clubs, colleges and universities, where he demonstrated his unique abilities in front of tens of thousands of people. Soon however, he decided to take a break from the road and entered the business world. Starting in the fitness industry, he quickly found that by adapting the memory techniques he had been studying and developing over the years, he was able to move ahead in his career faster than he or anyone else had expected. From never losing track of detailed information, to remembering everything about his many clients, including not only their names and occupations, but also the names of their family members, their birthdays, hobbies and fitness goals, he got the job done with confidence and ease. Along with making a lot of new friends, Bob saw the sales retention of his company increase by 13 percent in the first year alone.

After teaching his memory techniques to his own sales staff, with highly acclaimed results, there was a phenomenal demand for him to teach his systems to other companies and organizations. At one point, he was invited to share his techniques at a national fitness convention. Because he incorporated his unique brand of humor and the incredible abilities he had developed in his stage days, his presentation was an instant success. From then on, there was no looking back. Bob was again doing what he loved. He was performing. Only this time, he also had the satisfaction of knowing that he was educating his audience as much as -- if not more than -- entertaining them.

A recognized authority on memory systems, Bob has spent the last twenty five years traveling the globe entertaining, keynote speaking, and training corporations, governments and associations to adapt memory systems for their particular needs. He has developed a series of sales oriented personal development keynotes and workshops, which have been popular on six continents, as well as writing the best selling book "Right Brain Rapid Recall."

When Bob is not presenting or developing his memory systems, he is an avid golfer and enjoys playing squash and blues piano. He resides outside of Toronto with his wife and their daughter who has been memorizing a list of twenty items at family parties since she was six. Bob also enjoys setting new records for the people at Guinness, and is currently training himself for "Speed Calendar Memorization," another mental feat he is happy to teach to interested parties.

His many TV appearances include, "Ripleys Believe It Or Not," ABC's "Regis Philbin," NBC's "Today Show," CBC and Britain's BBC 1.

Speaking Topics
  • Welcome to Your Brain.

    You have just been introduced to a group of 5 people, all potential clients, and two minutes later...you can’t remember any of their names. A client asks you for certain product information. Not quite sure of the answer, you offer, "Let me look that up, and I'll get back to you." Then you forget to follow up. In the middle of an important presentation...uh…duhh…you forget a key point. What’s that client's phone number? Is it 555-1287 or 555-1827? Where is my PDA? Did any of these situations sound familiar?

    When common memory lapses like these occur, it not only leads to frustration, embarrassment and lost credibility...it carries a negative image. Conversely, an excellent memory conveys the image of success and of someone who is in control Imagine the impression you'll make when you are able to immediately recall the names of all your clients, their interests and hobbies; quote prices and product numbers; keep business appointments and deliver presentations, all without ever having to refer to notes or other sources. A trained memory is a business asset attainable by everyone.

    Funny, unique and interactive in his entertaining keynotes and workshops, Bob reveals the untapped potential in each of us. His empowering systems and their many applications in the business world give participants’ immediate 'walk away' value.

  • Bob's presentations can be tailored to suit your agenda. His sessions range from 30 minutes to a full day.

    Even when booked solely as an entertainer, Bob still manages to impart practical techniques that benefit his audience both socially and professionally. To suit more cautious budgets, Bob is available for a keynote followed by a continuing workshop later that same day.

  • Bob's Brain App:

    Our world is one of converging media, where various technologies and forms of communication are becoming increasingly integrated. Yet this media must ultimately converge with our brains if it is to be any use at all. You will learn how to take advantage of social media such as Facebook, Linked In and Twitter, to enhance your own "personal computer" and its "hard drive" and increase its power and abilities still further.

  • Memory's Best Kept Secret Master Program:

    Bob demonstrates and shares the systems that has allowed him to memorize the capitals, population and square mileage of every nation on earth. In the workshops, groups never fail to amaze themselves by memorizing, amongst many other things, a randomly generated thirty-digit number both forwards and in reverse. It is an exercise that shows the incredible, untapped potential in each of us.

  • "I'm no good with names...but I never forget a face!":

    In this amusing, unusual and empowering presentation, Bob reveals a wonderful method to easily 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. It's a hilarious system that will have the audience in hysterics... and it works!

  • The Turbo Charged Brain:

    Bob 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 hilarious and practical 'Chain' system. A system dating all the way back to ancient Greece, which is an invaluable tool for memorizing speeches, presentations, lists, complex equations and more!
