December 2016 saw the 9th World Mind Mapping Championships head to Singapore, and we were delighted that the first and second prizes were awarded to two of our very own ThinkBuzan Licensed Instructors.
Hosted by the inventor of Mind Mapping, Tony Buzan, the event took place over 1 day and saw participants complete three disciplines to compete for the title of Mind Mapping Champion. Firstly, participants had to create a Mind Map based on what they heard in a 30-minute lecture on a random topic. Secondly, they had to build a Mind Map based on a written article, and lastly create a Mind Map on a topic of their choice. The participants were tested on their ability to create the most effective Mind Map based on several criteria, including the demonstration of Mind Map principles such as use of images and keywords, use of humour and playfulness, and originality and impact.
Mind Mapping TLI Liu Yan was crowned the Mind Mapping Champion. Lui first met Tony Buzan back in 2011 at a speaking event, and it was from that point on that she knew she wanted to dedicate her professional career to promoting Mind Mapping. Since attending the ThinkBuzan Licensed Instructor Course in Mind Mapping in London during August 2014, Liu has been teaching Mind Mapping to others, and has now taught an outstanding 60,000 students approximately.
We recently caught up with Tony Buzan, inventor of Mind Maps, at the home of Mind Mapping and iMindMap, Tec Marina, to discuss iMindMap 10 and the all-new Time Map View.
