Author Biography - James Borg

James Borg is a practicing work psychologist and business consultant in the areas of interpersonal skills and management. His career spans advertising, sales, marketing, journalism, and work psychology. An economics graduate from the London School of Economics (LSE), he also received a postgraduate degree in psychology. James's interests in the area of psychological magic led him to being admitted as one of the youngest members of The Magic Circle. This "mind magic" plays a popular part in his coaching sessions, and it demonstrates the advantages of picking up other people's signals in our everyday dealings--both in our professional and personal lives. As a consultant at Psychology Goes to Work, James offers advice on marketing techniques and the application of psychology in the workplace. You can contact James at
