Barry Mapp

Mind Mapping and Accelerated Learning Coach

I'm a sought-after speaker, trainer, and personal development coach based in the UK with a special interest in the brain, accelerated learning and people development.  My present focus is  developing high quality, simple, innovative, life-skills based, video e-learning courses.

My 'SMART WORKING' Course is currently the NUMBER ONE Personal Development course in the mind mapping niche, with more than twice the number of enrollments and ten times the number of four and five-star reviews compared to the next most popular course. A course that's genuinely worth paying that little bit extra for. 

A bit of background information about me: 

I've worked in schools, colleges and universities in the UK, and also in the corporate and SME sector, working with students, teachers, apprentices, managers and leaders. My background is actually in clinical science where I ran an NHS Clinical Biochemistry Department in a District General Hospital and I was also a Quality Consultant to my local hospitals and local Health Authority.

Back in 1996, after training in 'mental literacy' with Tony Buzan (the inventor of Mind Mapping), I set up my own training company the House of Learning. A year later, I put some of my new skills to the test and competed in the World Memory and the World Speed Reading Championships (silver medal position in the latter). Altogether, I have 20 years experience working in the personal development sector and in the field of business leadership.

'Smart Working - Mastering the Skill of Effective Mind Mapping' was my first course in this marketplace and I now also have a 'Smart Learning' and a 'Smart Speaking' course. As of June 2016, I have nearly 12,000 students from over 140 countries across all my courses. Many of these students have English as a second language.  

I have two more great courses in the pipeline scheduled for Winter 2016.
