ThinkBuzan Licensed Instructors take over the World Championships

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.

7 everyday challenges Mind Mapping can help you to overcome

Mind Mapping can be applied to any task to help you think with clarity and boost your understanding and performance. When you use Mind Maps on a daily basis, you will find that your life becomes more productive, creative and stress-free on every level. The number of uses Mind Mapping has are endless. Here are seven everyday challenges that Mind Mapping can help you to overcome.

1. Remember every detail

If you’re struggling to remember key information, useful ideas and important facts, try using a Mind Map to give your memory a boost. Through the use of short, memorable keywords, Mind Maps chunk information into core themes, which trigger connections in the brain to help you remember more. To recall specific pieces of information in your Mind Map, make them stand out using colour. Changing the colour of the branches links the visual with the logical and creates mental shortcuts to boost your memory. Adding images will also improve your ability to recall information. They’re processed instantly by the brain, so you’re more likely to remember them than long sentences. Personalising your Mind Maps with images and colours strengthens your connection with its content to help you remember every detail. Read more.
