Why Mind Mapping?

A mind map is a kind of diagram for representing words and ideas.  They are connected to and arranged radially around a central key topic. Mind maps are used to generate, visualize, structure, and classify ideas, and as an aid in study, organization, problem solving, decision making, and writing.

It is a powerful creative thinking tool now used by millions of people around the world – from ages 10 to 100 – whenever they wish to use their brains far more efficiently.  Originated by Tony Buzan, a leading authority on thinking, creativity and how the brain works.

It will accelerate your ability to learn, improve your memory, creativity and concentration.  Brainstorming for ideas individually or as a group becomes a breeze with Mind Mapping.

Mind Mapping is taught to executives of Fortune 500 companies like Boeing, IBM and HP to enhance their creative thinking and problem solving.  Boeing claims it saved US$ 11 million in one year as result of this fabulous tool.  It is more than just a way to take notes – it’s really a way to develop the right side of the brain, which few people really tap.
