He memorizes one person per the first 3 digits, 2 digits for the action, and 2 digits for the object. In one mental location, he attaches 7 digits using the PAO system.
His strategy with names and faces, he converts the names into pictures and attaches it to a facial feature.
With cards, he also uses a PAO system where he attaches 3 cards per location.
In the poem event, he breaks apart each line into two sections and attaches it to a specific location.
