Event Details

Conference Theme: Is mind mapping the missing link?

Biggerplate Unplugged brings together mind map users, software developers, bloggers and trainers to explore trends, innovations, and possibilities in the world of mind mapping! 

We'll be exploring situations where mind mapping is the best tool for the job, and looking at real-world use cases to understand how mapping helped. We'll also look at whether mind maps should be viewed as an end-product in themselves, or simply a component part of larger processes...

Where does mind mapping really fit within business, education, and government, and can it truly be considered the missing tool for modern information workers?
