Paul Mellor, a finalist in the USA Memory Championship, remembered the names of over 90 people in less than 15 minutes, recalled in correct order over 100 single digit numbers after a five-minute study, and recalled the exact order of a shuffled deck of playing cards after less than a three and-a-half minute review.
His popular seminars have been presented to attorneys throughout the United States, including the Ohio State Bar Association, California Bar Association, State Bar of Oregon, State Bar of Georgia, Tennessee Trial Lawyers Association, Pennsylvania Bar Institute, plus many more.
We remember it well! It was Tuesday, August 2, 2011 and Paul Mellor was receiving rave reviews from ECBA members for the seminar he had just presented, designed to help lawyers improve their memory skills. We welcome him back.
As an attorney, you’ve invested plenty of time and money in your education and in honing your professional skills, but what about investing in your memory? Improved memory skills lay the groundwork for building a better brain, being able to speak without notes, remembering specifics of a case, recalling details from a deposition, preparing for hearings, thinking quickly on your feet without the fear of forgetting… being more productive overall. A strong memory gives an attorney an edge.
We invite you to join nationally recognized memory training consultant Paul Mellor for a session that will improve the way your mind retains facts. The program includes:
• Deposition demonstration
• Speaking without notes to jurors
• Cross-examining with confidence
• Learn the “facial formula” to quickly remember a name
• Remembering names and faces of jurors at trial, clients in any setting
• Tips, techniques, demonstrations, improved skills – and fun.
Finally, there is the benefit of relieving stress through a better memory. Really? Think about it. Brain freeze, memory lapse, senior moments. Whatever you call them, it’s stressful (and somewhat embarrassing) when you ‘draw a blank.’ Your longtime client is standing right in front of you… but what’s his name? Opposing counsel walks in - what was her name again? There are ways to avoid these situations – attend this seminar and learn!
