Encouraged by praise at home, he began to find memory techniques could have a valuable role in other aspects of his life. With a little ingenuity, he adapted the ‘memory trick’ to help him with his work at school. The reward was a significant rise in his grades.
Years later, Bob immigrated to Canada from his native England. At the time he was working as an entertainer, and he had to prove to Immigration that he wasn’t taking a job away from a Canadian. As the Immigration authority quickly learned, he wasn’t taking a job away from anyone else in the world! Traveling and entertaining under the stage name of ‘Backwards Bob the Memory Man,’ Bob demonstrated the unique abilities that have netted him a place in the Guinness Book of World Records and recent appearances on Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, The Steve Harvey Show, The NBC Today Show, BBC, CBC, and many more.
Unforgettable, Intelligent, Funny!
After teaching his memory techniques to his own sales staff, with highly acclaimed results, there was a phenomenal demand for him to teach his systems to other companies and organizations. At one point, he was invited to share his techniques at a national fitness convention. Because he incorporated his unique brand of humour and the incredible abilities he had developed in his stage days, his presentation was an instant success. From then on, there was no looking back. Bob was again doing what he loved. He was performing. Only this time, he also had the satisfaction of knowing that he was educating his audience as much as – if not more than – entertaining them.
“Would love to see him again!”
When Bob is not presenting or developing his memory system, he is an avid golfer and enjoys playing squash and blues piano. He resides outside of Toronto with his wife and their daughter who has been memorizing a list of twenty items at family parties since she was six. Bob also enjoys setting new records for the people at Guinness, and is currently training himself for “Speed Calendar Memorization,” another mental feat he is happy to teach to interested parties.
His many TV appearances include, “Ripley’s Believe It Or Not,” The Steve Harvey Show, The NBC Today Show, CBC, and Britain’s BBC 1.
