Book an employee training workshop: Creating Content through Mind Maps

Mind Mapping and Visual Notes are the ultimate brain tools for any task that requires you to identify key ideas and content – and/or to gather, learn, organise, store and recall information.

Use the new skill to create great content, to take brilliant notes, to prepare for business meetings, pitches, interviews, public speaking/presentations, seminars, training documentation, or exam prep… ANYTHING that requires identifying and gathering and processing and association and recall of information. (Plus the skills can be adapted to efficiently chunk down information into key ideas in text notes as well as imagery).

What is Mind Mapping?

It is a whole-brain tool of literally mapping information visually onto one page, using keywords and associations and images and colour. My training will give you the theory and application skills to mind map ‘oldschool’ with coloured markers and paper, or to apply the learning effectively and optimally to mind map software on a desktop or laptop or mobile device app… BENEFITS:

  • easier recall and retrieval of information from your brain
  • an efficient way to map and gather business or study data, rather than the old way of reams of linear notes and bullet points.
  • a deeper discovery and understanding of the subject information

  • a more natural and efficient way of organising and storing the information in your brain

How People Learn:

” If you want people to be able to pay attention, don’t start with details. Start with the key ideas and, in a hierarchical fashion, form the details around these larger notions. Meaning before details.”
~ John Medina, Molecular Biologist and best selling author of ‘Brain Rules’
