Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

As you read this post, The UP Experience 2011 is just 3 weeks away! We’ve been waiting all year and can’t believe it’s already here.

As we wait on pins and needles for October 27th we thought we’d take a closer look at what some of our UP 11 speakers have been up to this week:

Dr. Anthony Atala was featured on the CBS News in New York for his incredible, pioneering work in growing human organs and the incredible opportunities this breakthrough technology stands to give the thousands on transplant lists in the U.S. His talk at UP11 is definitely one not to be missed.

Also featured on CBS News this week, fellow UP 11 speaker Katie Linendoll, talking about her predictions for yesterday’s big Apple iPhone announcement. See what she expected and if it lined up with the big announcement.

Memory guru Ron White contributed a great actionable memory tip to an interested article produced by Men’s Health and ABC News, “17 Ways to Upgrade Your Whole Life.”

Meanwhile Sal Khan, founder of Khan Academy which is revolutionizing education, was interviewed on CNN about how to get kids excited about science, technology, engineering and math.

UP 11 speaker and memory expert Ron White was featured in SUCCESS Magazine this week. White had an MRI taken at the University of Texas this week, while he memorized information. The results showed that White uses 35 percent more of his brain when memorizing than the average person! Don’t miss him at UP 2011 when he shares his tips and tricks!

UP 08 speaker Craig Kielburger took to the Huffington Post to talk about the incredible difference education can make for a child in their article, “An Education Takes Kids from Slums to Schools.

On a light note, UP 10 speaker and New York Times tech columnist David Pogue took some time to help us all get up to speed on the latest cultural references in his guide, “Internet Memes 101: A Guide to Online Wackiness.”

Expect to walk away with tips and tricks that you can put to work immediately. Ron firmly believes his “gift” is not what many would deem a photographic memory; but rather, it is a skill that anyone and everyone can learn, apply, and utilize in their everyday personal and professional life…and he’ll show you how!

Ron is a two-time national memory champion, winning the USA Memory Championship in 2009 and 2010.  He currently holds the record for being the fastest to memorize a deck of shuffled cards in only 1 minute and 27 seconds, and can memorize the names of 200 people in as little as 15 minutes.
