Flex Your Memory to Master Names and Faces



Rhinebeck resident Brent Sverdloff will be teaching “The Art of Remembering Names and Faces” at Red Hook Continuing Education on Monday, September 26.


Says Sverdloff, “We are all in the business of building relationships, and that starts with remembering someone’s name. Getting a name right inspires confidence from the outset and helps others remember you—a powerful advantage in any personal or professional situation.”


In this intensive two-hour workshop, you will learn why we often retain many details about the people we meet but forget their names almost at once. Discover how to assign names to easy-to-grasp categories; then, engage in fun, imagination-based exercises that teach you how to link the name to the face. You will notice results right away in the quality of your interactions. You will also leave understanding why “flexing your memory” is as vital to overall wellness as proper diet, exercise, and rest.
