Mind Mapping to Get Things Done  

Developed by Tony Buzan, a master in understanding how the mind works, the Mind Map® has been called the Swiss Army Knife for the Brain.

The Mind Map is one of the most empowering and useful tools in the Deliberate Creative Thinking arsenal, now used by an estimated 450 million people around the world. 

Tapping into the way brain actually works, Mind Mapping® allows ideas to radiate from a central focus while providing a holistic picture of the situation.

This program looks at the practical application of Mind Maps to get things done, and participants will learn to:

  • Unlock the power of radiant thinking by taking a look at how the brain really works

  • Develop Mind Maps that capture complete concepts and develop new ideas

  • Capture and comprehend information easily with greater completeness and clarity

  • Use Mind Mapping to plan activities of all types - personal and work related

  • Create Mind Maps that organise information coming in and out of your head

  • Use iMindMap software to turn their Mind Maps into reports, presentation and projects in half the normal time

  • Create Group Mind Maps that engage and empower team collaboration and creativity


By understanding the way the brain really works and applying the Laws of Mind Mapping to organise and develop thinking, Mind Maps help to:

  • Plan major projects and other activities in a fraction of the time normally needed

  • Capture and comprehend vast amounts of information relevant to their focus

  • Work creatively either individually or in a team

  • Generate innovative new ideas related to the task being worked on

  • Communicate ideas and concepts easily and quickly

Speed Reading to Accelerate Learning  

Read strategically to increase speed, comprehension and recall to better Manage Information Overload

The more effectively you read the better you maximise your capacity to absorb new information and ensure your success!

Can you read 1,000 words a minute? 

With the challenges of information overload you face daily, reading 1,000 words a minute with full comprehension has become a necessary skill for everyone. 

Buzan’s Speed Reading techniques work with how your mind works and give you the capacity to effectively handle and manage incoming information, enabling you to keep one step ahead.  


Today's fast paced world demands the ability to rapidly absorb and understand enormous amounts of new information. 

It has been estimated by the United Nations that a knowledge worker in most fields needs to be able to read at least 400 Words per Minute in order to just keep abreast of what is happening in their field. 

Yet most people read at 300 WPM or less. 

This makes many professionals functionally illiterate!  


When properly applied and used to their full extent speed reading techniques allow people to:

  • Double and even triple their current reading speed
  • Increase reading comprehension with broader vocabulary and improved understanding and recall
  • Make faster connections between related themes, issues and ideas to put these to use
  • Rapidly gain an appreciation of new material, and build their knowledge database 
  • Finally deal with the pile of reports, papers and magazines in the corner, and the unread books on the bookshelf
  • Read on-screen material easily, and manage emails effectively
  • Bring your reading to life using the new knowledge and skills you've gained

Who should attend?

Suitable for Business people, Education (Students and Teachers), Community and Government, Personal Applications and any suffering from Information Overload.


"Good techniques taught in a fun and relaxed presentation"…
Helena Chan…Senior Business Analyst

"Great, the techniques to speed up my reading were actually "taught" in the 3 hours. I saw improvement by the end of the course" 
Maria Vetsikas…Analyst/Programmer
