I just completed a memory training seminar in Bangkok that my friend Amin Rais hosted. Amin and I have been working together since 2008. He has brought me to Bangkok for 4 memory seminars in that time and a few in Malaysia. It is nice to be Ron White Memory Expert in the USA but it is even more fun to travel as the memory expert.
The first event he hired me to speak at in 2008 he really packed the house with 500 people. If you think it is hard to memorize 100 names in 30 minutes try doing it in Thailand! Ha!
Above is Amin and I with his wife in a taxi in Malaysia a few years ago. This year, the number of people wasn’t near 500 but it was a fun and successful memory training seminar. We had a room full of eager learners with names like
Ashesh (I visualized ashes), Roonpecht (I visualized a ‘wrong pet’) and Suweddi (I visualized sewing a wedding dress). During the seminar I played a video of a 6 year old little girl using my memory system to memorize the presidents of the USA. It really is the cutest video on the planet of the cutest 6 year old on the planet (I am biased…she isn’t mine but I couldn’t love her more if she was).
After I played the video I said, ‘If you have children and you don’t get my memory training CDs for your children your kids need to be taken away from you and given to someone who loves them!’ Everyone laughed and then I got serious for a minute and said, ‘You know why I taught Kailey that memory method? Because I love her….’ Of course I followed it up with, ‘….and if you don’t love your kids that is okay don’t get my memory training CDs.’ Ha! Luckily they saw it as funny too and even luckier they did buy the CDs!
After the seminar I got out of my suit as soon as possible and relaxed and went shopping for some folks back home. I had been given the mission of purchasing a Bento box (don’t worry I didn’t know what it was either), only to find out after hours of searching it is a Japanese tray and I was in Thailand. No Bento box was found 😥
Now I head to Malaysia where once again I will be introduce as Ron White memory expert and will teach a 90 minute memory training class. The exciting thing for me is that one of the other speakers at the event is Lou Ferrigno, the Incredible Hulk!
Hope your week is going well in whatever part of the world you are in and DON’T FORGET TO REMEMBER!!!
