The Brain Encoding System.

Training your memory will improve your memory. However, what most don’t know is that it also builds the foundation for achieving exceptional mental performance.

I look at memory training the same way as physical training. We know that if we exercise, lift weights, go for a run, smash out burpees, and train in any form in a physical way, with regularity and discipline, in time we will see results. How do we do this for mental improvement however? Play Sudoku? Tackle crosswords? Or get on our favourite brain training phone app? Give me a break.

In order to truly obtain mental results, you need to train your brain encoding system. This means being able to take abstract data and transform it into meaningful information. The aim is to do this faster and better each time using the right tools and exercises with the right guidance.

Below are some of the ways you can get involved in training your memory to enhance your mental encoding.

Training & Workshops

Short, sharp, interactive and to the point. Want to learn memory skills to apply straight away? Attending a workshop or organising a training program for your organisation provides the tools necessary to up-skill and empower your staff. Programs are either half or full day and include practical elements for people to take away and use immediately. The success doesn’t come from the knowledge, it comes from the successful practice of these memory skills.

Training and workshops we have run in the past include:

> Public speaking confidently without notes
> Managing time and boosting productivity
> Speed reading for comprehension
> Memory gymnasium - techniques and tools that work
> How to reduce stress - Using the power of your mind to regain control
> Boosting creativity through memory training
> Memory training for elite athletes - gain extra percentage edge over others

After a mix of topics? We also run bespoke training to suit your specific needs.


Keynote Speaking

When getting up to speak about memory improvement, one does not simply talk about memory improvement. The audience have to experience firsthand the skills and positive change the occurs. When I’m invited to speak at conferences and events, I have everyone taking away knowledge that will change their life. Whether that is a short 20-minute spot or a 1-hour keynote where by the end everyone remembers everyone else’s name.

Conferences are great networking events, however people still hold back approaching others, as a result not making the most out of the event itself. Why not have them learn crucial skills like remembering a name, details, or anything else that is going to help with connecting to others. After all, that is what we are here for isn’t it? Memory is connection. Memory done right leads to stronger relationships, engagement and confidence with people enabling trust.

I love the stage. As a guitarist back in my younger days, it was the one place where time stopped and I felt in the moment. When I speak on stage about something I love and help people with, I am in the moment. In the zone. Your audience will benefit from it, take away key skills and walk out of the event taking action knowing that what they just learned will give them success for the rest of their lives.


1-on-1 Coaching

Are you satisfied with your memory at the moment? If not, then you’re only a few techniques away from getting exactly what you want. Coaching is for those who want to get results fast. If you’re someone who works best 1-on-1 then this will help you get to where you want.

I must warn you though, I do make people work for it. Success doesn’t just come to you. You have to earn it. Memory is not just all happy, fun mental games, which it may seem to be if you’ve experienced a bit of it. Self-discipline, accountability and managing mental states is what is necessary to make the most out of working with me. I will make you go through mental challenges, weeks where you will plateau and think you won’t be able to go any further, as well as failure after failure.

Experiencing these will create mental agility, in-turn helping you learn from mistakes and create strategies to overcome obstacles. I will only guide you. You will be the one making the decisions and training. In the end, it’s one of the most rewarding experiences when you’re able to achieve all the things you’ve set out and then some more!

Are you up for the challenge?


Mentorship Program

Sometimes it’s not just enough to improve oneself, you want to make a difference in the world. You want to have a greater impact and feel the huge reward in doing so. This is a two-year program for those who want to take their learning of memory to the next level to help others.

What’s involved?

You will learn all the techniques, strategies, and principles that form the basis of memory to a master level, working with Tansel and your mentorship group every step of the way. You will then have the opportunities to train and even participate in Tansel Institute workshops and events throughout the year, such as TEDx, the Australian Memory Championships and various mind conferences held throughout the year.

This program is strictly for those who are serious about developing and challenging themselves to the next level utilising the knowledge of and open nature of memory. It is for those who are committed, disciplined, and want to help and serve humanity to the best of their ability. This program is a long journey, and requires individuals to develop patience, mental stamina, and open mindedness to always learn and make the most out of their knowledge.

Mentees then take their knowledge and skills developed to apply into their own specialised fields.

There are no assessments in this program, however mentees will need to complete recommended reading, weekly reflections from their learning, monthly research articles, data analysis within organisations, and showcase an end of year project demonstrating their skills within their specialised area of choice.

How we select mentees

The applicant will undergo a two-stage interview discussing their goals, vision, and intentions for the program. We will also go through various learning scenarios for applicants to diagnose on how they would tackle these challenges. What we look for is a willingness to help others and a desire for personal growth.
