How to improve your memory

There is a great article in the Times today entitled 'How to improve you memory in 5 minutes' which is well worth a read.

As a trainer I take away a few key messages that reinforce my approach to adult learning.

There are three tricks of memorisation:

  • The brain remembers visuals better than anything else
  • It remembers the bizarre better than the ordinary
  • It remembers stories better than lists.

So lets get rid of those boring wordy PowerPoint slides and replace them with great visuals. Let the words come from you, and let them take the form of stories that capture the imagination of the learner.
