How to Fight Fatique with Dr. Deborah Bonfanti
Tuesday, January 23rd at 6pm
“There are different types of fatigue (low-energy), and identifying when one’s energy dips and rises are essential keys in discovering the underlying factors snagging one’s energy. If someone wakes up with energy, and it drops after lunch, that is very different from someone who wakes feeling tired but then has high energy at night. The cause is completely different, and so the treatment will need to be different, as well.” – Deborah Bonfanti, ND

The Art of Remembering Names with Neil Kutzen- Memory Trainer
Tuesday, February 20th at 6pm

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 makes 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.
“Participants were laughing and learning. Feedback was enthusiastic and positive, with one person very excited to try out the techniques she had learned at a wedding she was attending later in the day. Neil is a terrific presenter.”
Tricia Ryden, Asst. Director, Wiggin Memorial Library, Stratham, NH

Neil Kutzen 25 years as a corporate management trainer. BA and MA in Psychology. Neil is a sometime actor, award winning story teller and full time memory trainer. He created the MemorizeBest method. Visit: www.memorizebest.com
