TESTIMONIALS:

“Chester’s presentation to ACCA and CFA members in Prague, Czech Republic on “How can better memory help finance and investment professionals in their daily jobs” was both inspiring and very enjoyable. All members rated very highly that Chester’s memory techniques will help them to better perform in their professional life!”
~ Katka Benesova, Head of ACCA Czech Republic, Slovakia & Hungary

“Chester did an amazing presentation for CFA Society Emirates members in Dubai. We received very positive feedback from our members. The presentation was unique and the application was instant where in our members could immediately start applying the techniques he explained to enhance memory and improve recall. We are grateful to have had Chester do this event!”
~ Hiren Bhatia, CFA, Dubai Events Chairperson, CFA Emirates Society

“Chester’s presentation to the CFA Society North Carolina was extremely well received. I have never seen one of our presenters engage everyone in the room the way Chester did. Chester’s program was both entertaining and instructional and our members left the evening knowing several techniques for improving their memories.”
~ John B. Maddison, CFA, President, CFA Society North Carolina

“Chester was an engaging and memorable speaker. Although I’m sure it isn’t a topic new to most, it was presented in an interactive and humorous manor. Many of my co-workers continued to comment on the presentation hours after the meeting. Many still remember the Monkey-Iron-Rope-Kite story, so it’s proof that method was very effective. I’m so glad we were able to meet Chester and learn something from his mastery. We look forward to having him come back again in the future, if possible.”
~ Brian Huang, Vice-President, Tri-Cities Marketing Council

“I collected evaluation sheets after both Chester’s keynote and break-out session, and he received excellent marks across the board. Chester had the right touch of providing specific techniques for boosting memory with a playful way of accomplishing it. I was impressed by Chester’s connection to his audience, as evidenced by his initial exercise of meeting and naming us all, and his use of metaphor and imagery to teach the techniques. I’ve been practicing, or reviewing as Chester refers to it, ever since and I’ve introduced the exercises that Chester taught us to my partner who can now also name the first 10 Presidents of the US (we’ve actually now gone up to 16) as well as the Academy Award winning movies from 2000 to 2010! We’ll spread the word about Chester throughout our organization in hopes that more chapters will want to contract with him for more presentations. I know several care managers who signed up for individual sessions with Chester, because of how impressed they were with him.”
~ Jeff Pine, MSPH, MS, CMC, National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers (NAPGCM)

“Dear Chester, You knocked the socks off the members of the CEO Club of Boston with your outstanding presentation! Thanks again!”
-~ Fred W. Green, Chairman, Chief Executive Officers’ Club of Boston

“After listening to Chester, I realized the possibilities. In a short span of time, 100’s of students were using complicated memory techniques.”
~ Pukar Malla, MPA Candidate 2011, President, Harvard Graduate Council, Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University

“Chester is one of the most fascinating and educational guest speakers that we have ever had”
~ Steve W. Martin – Professor – U.C. Berkeley, Haas Graduate School of Business

“Chester Santos was amazing. I had him in to talk with a business group meeting – he was slightly different than our normal speaker, but I took a chance. Within minutes, he had what was a skeptical group going from skepticism to curiosity, to being able to instantly remember and recall series of random words, numbers, US presidents, and more. Not only is Chester Santos’ memory presentation fun and intriguing, but also I think important in terms of learning how to stretch and improve one’s memory. I’ll be using Chester again.”
~ Mike Faith, CEO & President, Headsets.com, Inc., Education Chair, Young Presidents Organization, NorCal Chapter of YPO

“Chester is extremely knowledgeable about memory and he communicates practical information in a very accessible style. Our members loved his presentation.”
~ Curtis Draves, President, California Federation of Interpreters

“Chester’s presentation was engaging and enlightening. He engaged (and amazed) the entire group, and not only did the group learn new information about remembering, but they had a good time as well – humor, engagement, etc. From a delivery perspective, Chester was crisp and clear, and took time to answer questions related to his topic. To his credit, he did not attempt to answer questions for which he did not know the answers (such as medical issue related memory loss).”
~ Susan Walls, Program Chair, SING – St. Isidore Networking Group
