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!

|Section 3: Demonstration|
|Here I demonstrate the whole process in more detail so that you can see how mind maps build organically.|
