Dominic O'Brien - Vice President

 Eight Times World Memory Champion & Current World Senior Memory Champion 

Did you know that 8-times World Memory Champion, bestselling author of 15 books, corporate trainer and speaker Dominic O’Brien once memorised 54 decks of cards after just a single sighting of each card?

He teaches business professionals, public figures and even entire audiences to significantly improve their memory and cognitive ability in their personal and professional lives.

In 1996 a film crew followed Dominic across America as he proved to the camera how it was possible to beat the casinos at Blackjack. He is now barred from all casinos in the UK and is “blacklisted” in Las Vegas. 


In 1994, Dominic was named Brain of the Year by the Brain Trust of Great Britain, and the Grand Master of Memory award was presented to him by Prince Philippe of Liechtenstein.

Dominic co-founded the World Schools Memory Championships in 2008 with Raymond Keene OBE and inventor of Mind Mapping, Tony Buzan. 

His Best-Seller, “How to Develop A Brilliant Memory – Week by Week”  reached Number One on Amazon UK.

“O’Brien is probably the top memory expert in the world today and has written many books on the subject.”

Derren Brown, British Illusionist, Mentalist and Author
