Do you have trouble remembering the names of people you have just met? Does your mind sometimes go blank when you try to recall dates, titles, or phone numbers? Memory training is an often-overlooked but highly effective tool for professional development both inside and outside academia. Thinkers ranging from medieval theologian Thomas Aquinas to business guru Dale Carnegie have encouraged the development of the “art of memory” for anyone wishing to develop the habits required for success.

The Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs is proud to present a special workshop for graduate students on memory training with renowned mindreader Jaymes White. Jaymes, a Carleton alumnus and expert on human behaviour, has toured and stunned audiences across the country. He has developed and starred in his own television show, Mind Games, and has won many awards in his career. He trains law enforcement, detectives and people in sensitive areas on observation, memory and handwriting analysis. He also runs the biggest seances in Canada, which have been sold out for years, although Jaymes will be the first to admit that he has no psychic powers or “gifts.” Jaymes will provide you with an introduction to memory training and offer fresh insight into the hidden powers of the human mind. Seating at this workshop is strictly limited, so register now!
