The Art of Remembering Names Workshop

Wednesday, December 6 from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

The Art of Remembering Names Workshop

Neil Kutzen- Memory Trainer


What is the cost to you of not remembering names?  Embarrassment? Missed opportunities? Missed connections? Fear of meeting new people? Lost business? This method has been taught for over a hundred years to hundreds of thousands of students. It has led to extraordinary feats of memory.

MemorizeBest has made it easier than ever to learn and use this method. You will see every person and their name more vividly, and remember their name surprisingly easily. Specially designed learning exercises are practiced in class and then at home. Practice and you will amaze yourself and others with your memory for names.

Neil Kutzen has spent more than 25 years as a corporate trainer and instructional designer. He has a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology.  He is a sometime actor and story teller, and full time memory trainer.


Pre-registration and a workshop fee of $10 is required by November 28
