Memory Training Success Story
by On January 24, 2011

I love hearing from past graduates of the Memory Training Workshop! I recently received this email and just had to share. If you haven’t taken this class, check out the dates and locations we have around the country. The results you will see after taking this workshop will blow your mind – I guarantee it! Anyways, here is what a client shared with me:

Hi David,

I want to thank you so much for what you taught me at the seminar last month! I have been applying what I learned to a second business I have and have seen amazing results. What used to take days for a new recruit to learn is now taking hours all while having fun, laughing, and creating excitement about learning! With a presentation that is 2.5 hours long, full of detailed information, and very interactive with the customer, the memory training has helped to keep my associates on track, remembering what points they need to cover, and doing it without the anxiety of rote memorization. This has truly helped increase the quality and consistency of our presentation, then number of sales made, and moral for new associates!

Thanks so much!
Jeremy Thompson, Saladmaster, Portland, OR

What a great testimonial! I am so happy Jeremy is bettering his life with these new skills. I hope to see you at a Memory Training Workshop soon.

Memory Training Workshop Testimonials from Madison WI
by On August 26, 2010

Roger SeipI just finished teaching the Memory Training Workshop in Madison, WI and was blown away at how much the attendees enjoyed it – both adults and students. I had a great time instructing the workshop and who wouldn’t given this kind of feedback! Some of the words they used to describe their experience were: Best seminar; Awesome! Motivating! Outstanding; Beneficial; Valuable. I just had to share with you a handful of the testimonials we received.

If you have not attended this workshop, the next class in Wisconsin will be August 25 and 26, 2010 at the Holiday Inn in Appleton and I would love to see you in class. You can enroll online or by phone. We also offer workshops around the country – check out our national workshop schedule for other locations and dates to enrolled.

Here are some of the comments from the Memory Training Workshop:

“Best seminar I have ever been to. Valuable experience I can use in boy my personal and professional life.”

– Anita Carrel, Owner, Farmer’s Insurance

“Wealth of information provided in a way that kept the attention of parents and kids. Training was done in a non-threatening environment and was able to grow and learn at own pace. This is one of the courses that should be taught in school – the younger the better. But a must for people starting their careers. Great job Roger.”

– Eugene Post, VP and Architect, Potter Lawson

“Awesome! Motivating! A great experience. Well worth the time and money. I will use what I learned in both my business and personal life.”

– Chris Morgan, Owner and Financial Advisor, Morgan Wealth Management

“Outstanding program. I wish I could have attended this program 40 years ago. I can only imagine how what I experienced in two sessions may have impacted my life. This has been the most beneficial session that I have attended in several years.”

– Tom Hartman, VP of Operations, MRPC

“Roger was a great instructor. I can benefit and use all of this in school. This class helped me not have such a fear of public speaking. We have a program at school call ‘forensics’ where you have to do a demonstration. I did that last year (7th grade) and was SO nervous each time. Also, before this class I couldn’t remember more than 5 items at a time…Now I can remember the whole tree list, Eddie Munster story, Axe store and more!! I would recommend this class to EVERYONE!”

– Jayde Corley, 8th Grade Student

I look forward to you having the same experience!

Reading Smart Workshop Testimonials from Bellevue WA
by On August 23, 2010

Here are some of the words people used to describe this workshop – Wow! Extremely impressed! Excellent! Unbelievable!

Last month Tom Weber instructed the Bellevue, WA workshops and people were extremely excited and impressed with the skills they learned. It just fires me up to see so many people improving and benefiting from the Reading Smart Speed Reading Workshop!

The next Bellevue, WA Reading Smart Workshop is January 18 and 19, 2011 and will be held at Coast Bellevue Hotel. Enroll online or by phone 888-233-0407. You can view other dates and locations of the Reading Smart workshop on our website.

Here is what the graduates of the Bellevue, WA workshop had to say:

“This class increased my self confidence when it came to reading and comprehension. I am a better reader than I thought. My beginning score was 240 words per minute with 70% comprehension. My high score was 800 words per minute with 60% comprehension. I feel if I were to slow down just a little my comprehension would increase.”

– Selina Hamilton, Realtor/Broker, Coldwell Banker Tomlinson

“Wow! I can’t believe how much better I am at reading now. The Smart Reading was unbelievable for me! I started reading 265 words per minute and 50 comprehension and ended with Smart Reading in the last test and read 1,200 words per minute with 60% comprehension. I plan to work to develop better comprehension.”

– Lou Whitemarch, Realtor, Windermere

“I came into this workshop thinking I was a slow to average reader. After the first time test I was faster than I thought – 600 words per minute. At one of the testings I had 1,320 words per minute. I have gained personal confidence that I am a fast reader. I enjoyed the techniques on how to read faster. My eyes were tired the second day but ended up still able to read. Will try to retain/comprehend more when I read faster. The class was entertaining and very helpful.”

– Susan Wright, Underwriter, Bellingham Underwriters

“The background Tom has in learning and current information that people can use to impact their lives is huge. As a student of many similar types of things, I caught them throughout the class. Not soap box, but seeds planted. Not ever knowing where they will bloom or flower, and planting anyways as a part of his commitment. Tom would be a successful person I would ask for a reading list of most impactful books.”

– Laura Unruh, Loan Officer, Home Street Bank

“I am extremely impressed with the skills I have ended with. I am excited to continue to practice and keep improving these techniques. Thanks you so much for doing this presentation. Blessings to you and your family.”

– Michelle Swanson, Realtor, Windermere

“Great program. Keep up the good work! I am in 9th grade and in 3 ½ hours I have learned more on reading skills then I have in 3 months.”

– Jakob Chase, Student

“The balance between information and activity was excellent. The very specific examples to support general statements were especially good. Breaking things up with breaks and group work was good. My only suggestion is to tell people ahead of time to bring a piece of non-fiction.”

– Marji Morgan, Dean and Professor, Central Washington University

And those are just a few of the comments this workshop received! What you could do if you could read faster?

I admit to having some skepticism about my own ability, and I will be leaving amazed at what I’m now able to remember! As I’ve gotten older, I’ve felt that I’ve been ‘losing my memory’. I feel now that not only am I ‘getting it back’ I think it will be better than ever! I’m looking forward to exercising my mind with these tools so I won’t lose them. THANK YOU!!”

Client Feedback on the Memory Training Workshop
by On June 7, 2010

I had a blast teaching the Memory Training Workshop last month in Anaheim, CA. Who wouldn’t have fun seeing the workshop’s attendants increase their memories over 300% and remember a room full of names?

I wanted to share some client testimonials I received from these recent graduates on their experience:

“This has been an amazing experience. I feel more confident in storing information and being a more effective speaker in our office meetings. Chuck was an awesome speaker and teacher. Very fun and exciting two days.”

– Mai Hua, Manager, Professional Tutors of America

“I sincerely appreciate your enthusiasm! It’s OBVIOUS you love what you do!”

– Victor Williams, Regional Vice President, Primerica Financial SErvices

“These two days were wonderful – great instruction – very motivating. Worth the time and money. Being away from the officer for two days is hard to do, but this was time well spent. Thank you!”

– Sonnie Faires, President / CEO, Upland Chamber of Commerce

“I had a great time, learned a lot and really feel like I have improved my memory, or system for memory, 10 fold!”

– Siama Ahmed, Realtor, Blackstone Realty

“My husband decided to sign our family up for this class without talking to me first. Of course I was skeptical that this class would help me, being that I consider myself to have a very poor memory.

Well – I have been very surprised on how wonderful this class has been for my family. For me to remember 15 out of 20 items, what a shock! My son has an extremely short attention span, but soaked up this newfound information. I feel it will be a great help in his schoolwork and has opened my eyes to that he must be more of a visual learner.

Thanks again for this wonderful workshop!!”

– Sarah Jacobson

“It was a great experience, learned stuff that my teachers would have never thought of.”

– Jerry Beas, Student

Memory Training even Better the 2nd Time
by On March 31, 2010

memory trainingIf you have taken the Memory Training Workshop, you know how exciting and amazing it is (and if you have not attended, what are you waiting for! Get enrolled.)

People often attend for a second time and cannot believe how much MORE they enjoyed it and learned.

Considering what people say after taking the workshop once, I did not think it was possible to love the workshop even more, but here are two recent graduate’s testimonials as proof.

If you have already attended the Memory Training Workshop and would like to attend again, please call 888-233-0407 to reserve your seat at no charge.

“This is my second time taking this workshop. It is still the best, most useful seminar, workshop, boot camp, etc that I have ever attended. I have gotten more out of this than all my other courses combined. I highly recommend it to everyone!”

– Annie Trajlinek, President, New England Real Estate Investors Association

“I attended the class for a second time so I could attend with my daughter. It really reinforced the skills I learned the first time and I was amazed at how much I had really remembered. One thing I observed that I missed before was Roger’s [the instructor] style of positive reinforcement. That was so effective in taking the pressure off the exercises and how well the students preformed. That was an excellent method to take the stress off your memory.”
