You can submit your footage and feedback forms to ThinkBuzan digitally or via mail.

Please note, to maintain Senior TLI status, you will be required to submit these items to ThinkBuzan for review annually at the time of renewing your Senior TLI agreement.

On your Global Instructor profile we will highlight your specialty subject. If you have been delivering Mind Mapping Practitioner courses, you will be shown as a ‘specialist in Mind Mapping’. If you deliver Memory and Speed Reading courses as well, this will also be highlighted.

Step 3: Achieve Senior TLI status

Once you have met all of the objectives set out above, the Training Team will review your application for Senior TLI status. This is to ensure that the highest standards of the ThinkBuzan brand are being achieved, if not exceeded. If successful, you will be awarded Senior Tony Buzan Licensed Instructor status and receive a new certificate, signed by Tony Buzan and Chris Griffiths. Your profile will also be showcased on our website and will reflect your superior status.
