Best Practices: Improve your memory skills for better networking

Jennifer Goddard wrote a great blog post on called "OMG, Did You Just Forget the Client’s Name?".

Have you ever forgotten a client's name or even someone you just met? If you answered yes to either question, you're not alone. We tend to be on information overload causing us to forget some of the most simple things such as someone's name.

To help me improve my memory, a friend of mine recommended The Memory Book: The Classic Guide to Improving Your Memory at Work, at School, and at Play by Harry Lorayne and Jerry Lucas. This book has some valuable tips and exercises to help you improve your memory in the areas of:
  • Speeches
  • Names and Faces
  • Long Words, Appointments and Errands, Shopping Lists
  • Long-Digits Numbers
What methods do you use to improve your memory?
