A fun academic Assembly that shows students in grades 3 to 12 how to improve focus and recall to get better grades, making school easier.
- The 3 "must-do" steps to remember more of what they see, read and hear
- How homework and review scientifically improve memory
- The keys to improved recall
- Why we forget and how to remember better, making test taking and classroom participation easier and less stressful
- Tools and techniques to solve the most common memory problems
Everyone has a great time learning because the assembly is filled with:
- Amazing feats of memory, including taking only seconds to memorize a student-provided random number and recalling the names of dozens of students
- Circus skills like balancing and juggling, all of which relate to the discussion at hand and make the show memorable and fun
- Comedy (Brad's years as an entertainer keep everyone smiling throughout the show)

Qualifications and Experience
Brad's memory hasn't always been amazing. In school he did poorly at math and science: those subject just didn't seem to stick in his mind. As an adult, remembering names was always difficult. In 2008 he decided to see if an ordinary person could actually improve his ability to remember. He discovered that memory improvement is possible, and it can even be easy and fun.
Brad has competed at memory competitions around the world since 2009. In 2012 he received two bronze medals at one competition in the United States. At the 2013 World Memory Championship in England, he set a new American record for memorizing spoken numbers. In 2014 at the World Memory Championships in China, he broke his own record for spoken numbers.
Brad has been a professional entertainer since age 12 (30+ years). At age 17 he was accepted to the prestigious Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus Clown College, where he learned the fine art of comedy, juggling, stilt walking, pie throwing, elephant riding and more. Upon graduation, Brad joined the Greatest Show on Earth and performed as a clown, juggler and stilt walker with the circus for two years.
Since those early years, he has travelled around the world, performing on cruise ships, at theme parks, corporate events, and hundreds of schools. In 1991 he used memory techniques to learn Japanese while performing in Japan.
He continues to train daily, and is passionate about helping people learn to remember better. He has performed at hundreds of schools and corporations, helping tens of thousands learn how memory works.
