HILLSBOROUGH, NJ - Most of us marvel at those people who seem to effortlessly recall everyone's name, deliver a speech without looking at notes, or retain, over time, much of the information they read or hear.
According to memory expert Matthew Goerke, such a memory is not necessarily a gift at birth, but the result of training - and he has been delivering that training to thousands of business men and women, public speakers and celebrities for years.
“There is no such thing as a bad memory – only an untrained one,” Goerke said.
That is the message at the core of “Memory Switch,” a workshop developed by Goerke, who has taught thousands of business leaders, public speakers and celebrities the path to a better memory.
On Wednesday, Jan. 23, Goerke will be the guest speaker at the Rotary Club of Hillsborough’s weekly dinner meeting – and the public is invited to attend free of charge.
“Improving memory is not only important in business and public office,” said Greg Burchette, president of the Rotary Club of Hillsborough, “but is key to success in many areas of our lives, including school, community and social interactions.”
The Rotary Club of Hillsborough holds its weekly meetings every Wednesday beginning at 6:15 PM at The Landing Restaurant, 311 Amwell Road. Those interested in attending this special presentation by Goerke - as well as a cocktail reception with a cash bar - must register in advance by sending an email with their name, contact information, and number of guests that will be attending to: firstname.lastname@example.org .
The Rotary Club of Hillsborough has over 35 active members from Hillsborough and surrounding communities. Members include business and professional leaders who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. The Hillsborough Rotary serves the Hillsborough community.
