Jonathan Hancock

Jonathan Bruce Hancock is the Founder of The Junior Memory Championship. A two-time Guinness World Record-Holder and former World Memory Champion, he also spent fifteen years working as a radio presenter on BBC Radio Oxford. He has written eleven books on memory and learning, and is now working as a primary school teacher.

He was born in north-east England, on 12 February 1972, but moved at an early age to North Yorkshire where he spent his early childhood, and then to Nunthorpe, a suburb of Middlesbrough. After school, he did charity work in Australia before moving to Oxford to study English at Christ Church, Oxford University. As a student in Oxford, he became involved with the local BBC radio station, where he went to work after completing his studies.

Jonathan has always had a keen interest in memory and learning. His books have titles such as "How to be a Genius" and "Maximise your Memory", and have been translated into seven languages. Now he is working with The Learning Skills Foundation as Founder of The Junior Memory Championship, an educational initiative to promote memory strategies in primary schools.

His latest books include 'Help Your Child Succeed At School', 'Brilliant Memory Training', 'Number Training Your Brain' and 'Improve Your Memory For Study'.
