Daniel Tammet Speaking Topics

  • Born on a Blue Day: Inside the Extraordinary Mind of an Autistic Savant

    Daniel Tammet, speaking with poise, humor and self-awareness, shares his journey in overcoming and coping with autism. Called "The Rosettea Stone of Autism," he can perform incredible feats of memory and visualize numbers in a way that has cognitive scientists buzzing. Yet, his greatest achievements may be the ones most people take for granted: moving out of his parents' home, supporting himself and having a long-term relationship. He offers illuminating personal insight into the worlds of autism, Asperger's, and other severe cognitive impairments. He hopes to make the world a more welcoming place for people with such disabilities, and to show that, often times, these people lead literally extra-ordinary lives.

  • Embracing the Wide Sky: A Tour Across the Horizons of The Mind

    In this talk, Daniel Tammet speaks with his characteristic clarity to shed light on the mysteries of savants' incredible mental abilities-• and our own. The differences between savant and non-savant minds may be exaggerated; autistic thought, he argues, is an extreme variation of a kind that we all do, from daydreaming to the use of metaphors. With scientific research and descriptions of how his own mind works, he explains how our natural intuitions can help us to learn a foreign language, and why there is more to intelligence than IQ. Of note are his original ideas concerning the genesis of genius and exceptional creativity, which he illustrates with examples from the breakthroughs, and breakdowns, of some of history's greatest minds. Pointing to the immense potential in all of us, Tammet leaves you with an imaginative portrait of how we think, learn, remember and create.
