Course Description

Mind Mapping is the brilliantly effective thinking and learning tool devised by Tony Buzan. I've been using Mind Maps for well over 30 years and have been fortunate enough to teach others how to use Mind Maps all over the world since 1996.

I'm delighted to be able to share my understanding of this uniquely effective technique on this course. I devised the course as a hands-on, practical introduction to Mind Mapping. There are 12 separate videos along with exercises that will get you Mind Mapping effectively right from the start.

I've included enough theory to explain how and why Mind Maps work, but kept the emphasis on practical ways to benefit from the technique - to help you to think, work, organise, learn, create, communicate and study more effectively. And more enjoyably too!

If you've ever been frustrated that your brain feels like it's stuck in second gear, this course is for you.

If you've always wondered about how to get the most from Mind Mapping - you are going to love this course.

In a career that has included working at Chief Finance Officer level in the computer industry, a long stint with the world's largest consultancy practice and starting and running a successful training organisation, I've come across hundreds of techniques to improve personal effectiveness. But Mind Mapping is the only technique that I use every single day. And I do so, quite simply, because it works.

I look forward to introducing you to this unique way of working so that you can start to benefit from Mind Maps too!

Plus your will have unlimited access to our FREE resources.

What are the requirements?

  • No prior knowledge of mind mapping is required, but people who have used mind maps previously will also find the course extremely valuable.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Learn how to use Mind Maps to boost thinking, learning and remembering to previously unimagined levels
  • Take effective notes from the spoken or written word in a way that will make it easy for you to understand and remember them in the future
  • Improve the effectiveness of your working so that you get more done, do it better and avoid wasting time too!
  • Learn how to excel in exams by learning MORE effectively in LESS time

Who is the target audience?

  • Everyone can benefit from mind maps and everyone can benefit from this course - students, people in work, people not in work
  • Anyone who feels that they sometimes (or often) work inefficiently or ineffectively
  • Anyone who would love to tap into their natural ability to understand and remember
  • Anyone who has previously glimpsed the power of Mind Maps but has so far been unable to tap into that power themselves

Section 1: Introduction and Objectives
Introduction and Objectives - In this first part, I introduce the subject of Mind Mapping and set out exactly what this course covers.
Section 2: Getting Started
Right from the start, I show you the basic process of mind mapping and invite you to have a go for yourself.

After you've had a chance to try out the process for yourself, I go over the key points of mind map structure and hierarchies.
Section 3: Demonstration
Here I demonstrate the whole process in more detail so that you can see how mind maps build organically.
Section 4: How the Brain Works
Mind Maps are highly effective because they are based on our understanding of how the brain works. Here I go through some of the key aspects of how our brains work and relate that to the structure of Mind Maps.
Section 5: Maximising your Memory

Using a simple but powerful example of a Mind Map, you will discover for yourself, exactly how powerful mind maps are as a memory aid. If you haven't used them in this way before, prepare to be amazed!

Section 6: Uses of Mind Maps
A quick look at some of the many uses of mind maps, for learning, business and personal applications.
Section 7: How to Mind Map
 I get into some detail in this lecture about the rules of mind mapping and how to get the most out of the technique.
Section 8: Improving Thinking and Learning
Mind Maps are a great aid to thinking and working far more effectively - if they are used properly. In this lecture I will explain exactly how clear and effective thinking is often compromised - and how to use mind maps to avoid this happening.
Section 9: Developing the Skill
The key to developing the skill of mind mapping is practice. Here I introduce a unique 'check map' that I've developed to help you get - and stay - on track.
Section 10: Bonus Modules - Studying and Exams
Here I will explain how to take notes, using Mind Maps, in lectures and and from books and other written material. I will also introduce my unique strategy for effective reading -INSEAK - the Intelligent Strategy for the Effective Acquisition of Knowledge. More details about INSEAK can be found here.
In this second bonus module, I take you through how to use mind maps to revise, prepare for and take exams. I also explain exactly how forgetting occurs - and how to avoid it!
