In Detail

Dominic began developing the mnemonic techniques that have made him famous when he saw Creighton Carvello memorise a pack of 52 playing cards in less than three minutes. His total belief in this issue of balance, coupled with his research into the brain, neuro-feedback and photic-stimulation have led him, with a colleague, to develop the unique Brainwave Conditioning System. This is a system that has been used to help condition peak performance in athletes and sportsmen and is now being used to help in the treatment of dyslexia and attention-deficit disorder, resulting in extremely rapid changes.


An outstanding mnemonist Dominic offers audiences fascinating insights into his memorisation techniques. He explains how you can reach peak personal and business performance by improving reading speed, memory and concentration skills. He gives lectures, and has been seen on television programmes such as The Human Body.
