James Borg is a practising work psychologist and business consultant. He became interested in magic and 'mind-reading' at the age of 9 and subsequently was - a few years later - admitted as one of the youngest-ever members of the Magic Circle. He reveals in Persuasion that there is a lot we can learn from magician's tricks to help us gain persuasive powers to use in work and life.
