This week we got an inside look at how those with dyslexia can benefit from Mind Mapping, thanks to iMindMap user, David Matkin. Read on for some first-hand experience of the power of visual thinking…
My name is David Matkin and I am the dyslexia tutor at Portland College. I have worked with dyslexic people of all ages for the last 7 years. As well as working with dyslexic people, I am myself dyslexic. It may seem like the blind leading the blind, however it does give me an “inside view” of dyslexia. Read More →
iMindMap 6 has brought a host of great new features – but how do you know how to get the most out of the new tools on offer? Well, with the opening ceremony for the world’s most renowned sporting event on Friday, we thought we’d take some tips from the heroes of the stadium…
1. Dazzle the crowd
A little razzle dazzle is a sure-fire way to win over an audience and make them sit up and take notice. The world’s fastest man, Usain Bolt, may have caught our attention with his record-smashing speed, but he kept it thanks to his vibrant personality, humorous celebrity collaborations, memorable celebrations and that signature pose.
For us mere mortals, the crowd tends to be more in the meeting room than in the stands but the principle still applies! Using iMindMap 6’s 3D maps can have the same attention-grabbing effect when used in meetings or presentations. Wrap your winning ideas in something cool, fun and different to boost their impact and you are guaranteed a much warmer response!
Almost 12 months since a fire badly damaged the 140-year-old boathouse at Marlow Rowing Club (Tony Buzan’s home away from home), the community gathered together to raise money to rebuild and return the club to its former glory, as well as for the Macmillan Cancer Support charity. The main event was ‘Row with Redgrave’ – an exclusive opportunity for guests to row with the five times Olympic rowing gold medallist, Sir Steve Redgrave. Six of the guests rose to the challenge, one of which being our very own Tony Buzan.
The new generation of Mind Mapping software has hit the digital shelves at ThinkBuzan.com. Turbo-charged with creative tools and stunning visuals, iMindMap 6 is designed to inspire your thinking and fuel your creativity.

“iMindMap 6 is the most advanced product we’ve ever developed here at ThinkBuzan HQ. Although all the new features get an equal share of our affection, 3D is something we’re particularly proud of because it’s simply unmatched. Our 3D editor takes Mind Mapping to a new creative space and there is nothing else like it, anywhere.”
