Welcome to the Webcast Replay of " Memory Training: Developing Confidence in Your Abilities" with Dana Steinova
Dana Steinova travels the world training memory trainers. Based in Prague, she is a specialist in organizing educational activities. She is also the very active secretary general of European Federation of Older People (EURAG), created in 1962, with 156 member associations in 33 European countries.
She holds degrees from the Institute of Enlightenment, the Economics University and the Charles University in Prague. She has, over the past 30 years, initiated a wide variety of programs including the U3A movement in the Czech Republic (1986), reciprocal senior student exchanges with more than 42 exchanges within its first 10 years (1991) and founding the first intergenerational non-vocational “University of Free Time” (1993) in the Czech Republic.
She is fascinated by neuroscience and has been deeply involved with memory training since 1993. She founded the Czech Society for Memory Training and Brain Jogging in 1998 and later, the EURAG Memory Training Center in Prague in 2002 with the objective of making training opportunities available worldwide. Since then she has traveled the world extensively to achieve this objective. She organized the first National Day of Memory Training as a part of Brain Awareness Week, the worldwide event launched in 2005 by the DANA Alliance of the Brain and which takes place in March every year. In 2008 it became the National Week of Memory Training and has been growing ever since. In 2016, 309 free lectures were held throughout the Czech and Slovak Republic, attended by 7,781 persons.
