About

Kevin Horsley wasn’t born with a phenomenal memory and learning ability. He was labelled dyslexic and struggled his way through school, battling to read and even to retain information for short periods of time. It was only after he had left school that he consciously decided to dedicate his time and energy to mental training and self-improvement. It is this decision that awakened a passion within him…

Over the past 25 years, he has been analyzing the mind and memory, as well as its capacity for brilliance.  Kevin was able to overcome his learning difficulties through rigorous study of the workings of the brain and how memory works.

Now he is one of the world’s first five people to have been awarded the title International Grandmaster of Memory by the Brain Trust, presented and jointly sanctioned by HSH Prince Philip of Liechtenstein on October 26th 1995.

Kevin is also a World Record Holder for the matrix memorization of 10,000 digits of Pi. The matrix record is known as ‘The Everest of memory tests’.

He is a World Memory Championship medalist and represented South Africa in London in 1995 and 1999 as well as in Malaysia in 2003. In competition, he has achieved the highest ranking ever attained by anyone from Africa and the Southern hemisphere. Kevin has now retired from competition and shares his message and experience with audiences across the world. He is also a #1 Amazon bestselling author in nonfiction and in numerous other categories, and the designer of a Times Table game with the Serious Games Institute at the North-West University Vaal Triangle Campus.

His work has been featured in The Oprah Magazine, Time, Forbes, Inc., The Huffington Post, ELLE, Longevity and on numerous TV and radio shows.
