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 nine 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. As a teenager, he became involved in broadcasting through the local hospital radio station.

After school, he took a year 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. He put his own memory techniques to good use in his university studies, gaining an Oxford First, and at the World Memory Championships in London which he won in 1994.

Jonathan is also a keen runner; he has run the London Marathon twice, and was chosen to carry the Queen's Jubilee Baton through Abingdon in Oxfordshire in the run-up to the 2002 Commonwealth Games.

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 book is called 'Help Your Child Succeed At School' and is published by Hodder.
