What is Mind Mapping®?
A Mind Map® is a visual representation of an idea or subject and associated component parts, using a creative and intuitive process to develop and structure thoughts in a radiant, hierarchical and memorable way. Devised by psychologist Tony Buzan in the 1970s, it improves upon earlier learning techniques such as ‘spider diagrams’, ‘concept maps’ and ‘sun bursting’, by structuring ideas to form a tree-like visual image.
Starting with an image at the centre of a page - representing the central concept of the Mind Map® - branches radiate outwards showing various ideas relating to the main subject. Using colour, single words and images or symbols, a highly visual graphic ‘map’ is produced, highlighting not only the information and its sub-themes, but also the connections and relationships between the ideas.

For businesses, corporations, charitable organisations, professional bodies and any group of individuals who would like to explore using whole-brain-thinking to solve problems and harness their potential.
All Mind Maps® are different – which is one of the key reasons why they are so effective. However, they follow an established format and principles which work in harmony with how the brain functions. Following these guidelines, you can learn how to use the Mind Mapping® technique to improve your creativity, take more effective notes, and boost your problem solving skills with this one-day, fully interactive seminar.

What Our Clients Say
I often forget stuff and put it down to galloping old age - listening to Phil Chambers not only helped me to understand why I forget to remember (yes that's right) he also explained some really simple, genius ways I could give my powers of memory a boost... Phil is brilliant, his teaching style is great fun and you'll leave knowing how to control your powers of recall.
Phil does a great presentation on mind mapping® and memory skills.I have aways been a fan of Tony Buzan and a user of mind mapping® but Phil puts it in across better and more memorable. Take a look your self and book him.
We work with corporations, businesses, public bodies and charitable organisations who want to improve productivity and creativity, and with individuals who are looking for tools to help them develop their potential. Some of our past clients include:
