The Mind Maps, Memory and Creativity course is open to anyone with an interest in personal development and a drive to achieve much, much more than they ever felt was possible. BRAIN SUPER-HIGHWAY Many people will already be familiar with Mind Maps, and the latest easy-to-use online version iMindMap™. In fact, over 250 million people globally now use Mind Maps daily to take notes, learn, memorise, plan and create – largely thanks to Tony’s tireless 30-year quest to bring this powerful brain tool, and its natural progeny ‘Mental Literacy’, to the world. Mind Map techniques help everyone tap into innate creative genius with ease. Based on extensive research on the brain and memory, Mind Mapping reflects the note-taking habits of extraordinary talents such as Leonardo da Vinci, Einstein, Picasso and Beethoven. Modern-day exponents include Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Al Gore. Tony’s London course will bring Mind Maps right up to date with 21st Century thinking on the brain. Tony explains: “The secret power of Mind Maps is their capability to ‘hotwire’ creative energies. The latest neuroscientific research has highlighted the mind’s ‘highway’, a preferential pathway along which neurons send their signals. Learning happens along this pathway and the further along it information is processed, the deeper the learning that results. Mind Maps create pathways that go a great distance along the mind’s highway, triggering deeper learning, retention and creativity.” Significantly, modern studies confirm that creativity is not a rare gift of the chosen few but a series of cognitive skills that can be taught, harnessed and applied. And when such skills are developed effectively, the possibilities for individuals to expand their minds, create, manage and lead are infinite. EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED! The course promises an in-depth insight and up-to-the-minute examination of Mind Maps as a tool for unlocking hidden creativity. Delegates on the course will experience the full breadth of Tony’s immense knowledge and expertise, together with the use of the innovative iMindMap software – a brilliant method of creating, harnessing and presenting big ideas and strategies to any audience… from your immediate family to packed arenas of students or business leaders. They will also discover how to improve memory and powers of recall using Tony’s proven techniques – the perfect antidote for anyone experiencing lack of concentration or the dreaded ‘senior moments’. Most importantly, they will learn how to unleash their creativity and increase personal effectiveness in any situation. This much is certain: when Tony Buzan takes to the stage, the key words are ‘expect the unexpected’. Tony is rigorous in tailoring his presentation to the needs of the audience. He adds: “I want everyone who attends the course to come away with a different perspective on themselves, their skills and their creative abilities. I guarantee that nobody in my audience will ever view his or her mind in the same way again!” For further information on Tony Buzan’s one-day public course MIND MAPS, MEMORY AND CREATIVITY, or to book a place, please visit www.buzantraining.co.uk, call the Bookings Department on 01628 482765 or email email@example.com.
