Hi there, My name is Ay, I am from Brooklyn, NY USA.
I am a father of 6, business man and a long time public speaker.
I am hoping to improve my memory skills to help me become an even more dynamic speaker.
I learned about memory techniques 20 years ago by reading The Memory Book by Harry Lorayne and Jerry Lucas.
As someone with a horrific memory the book and practice helped greatly but I am interested in becoming even better. Much better.
My log term goal is to memorize a seven minute speech verbatim. That’s @1,100 words.
I know it should be easy to to memorize just the outline of the speech which would be 5 general points of the speech.
2-3 sub points for each general point.
And to scatter in the speech up to 6 quotes on a specific topic, 3 statistics and 4 short stories.
Yet that has proven challenging mostly because of the anxiety related to speaking in public.
Ultimately, I would like to memorize a pre-written speech word for word.
I was hoping someone would have a good suggestion to set me on the road to accomplishing my goals.
Either way, glad to be part of this great group.
