Principles of Enhanced Memory

Just like Speed Reading and Creative Thinking, having a great memory is a SKILL anyone can develop.  Recall during learning and recall after learning are simple powerful principles on how you remember, and with that knowledge you will improve your memory skills, and become more memorable.

Similarly remembering names and faces, key events, complex plans, and more, can be mastered – using the right methods and practice.  If you believe you ‘have a lousy memory’ then you need to unlearn that belief and develop an enhanced memory now.  Let us show you how.

This program is available as an in-house program tailored for the specific needs of your people, and occasionally as a public program.  To discuss how you can have the skills of a Memory Champion contact us at

Study Skills for Adults Returning to Formal Study

Whether you last attended formal study 20 years ago, or are starting university this year, having great study skills is crucial to your success.  They give you the confidence to take on complex study, while also allowing you to balance study and other parts of your life.

A typical MBA subject requires about 150 hours of study (in and out of class) in the usual 14 week semester.  If you are studying two subjects each semester, that is more than 3 hours each day, 7 days each week.  We know – both Bill and Jennifer completed Master degrees as adults returning to study, and both lecture at Master level.

So you need an advantage to tackle your studies, and the Mindwerx Study Skills course for adults returning to study gives you that advantage.

This program will occasionally be available as a public program, but Jennifer is available to coach you as well. For more information contact us at
