Why you should attend this Workshop
Learn how individuals maximise their creativity, concentration and mental agility? How can ideas be progressed and information communicated?
Liam Hughes from Biggerplate will show you how individuals and businesses are using mind maps on a daily basis to improve planning, creativity, and communication using a range of real-world examples and practical exercises. By the end of this workshop, you will have a clear understanding of the principles of effective mind mapping, and how to apply them in the real world using both hand-drawn and computer-based mind maps.
A mind map is a diagram used to visually outline information -it is often created around a single word or text, placed in the centre, to which associated ideas, words and concepts are added. Major categories radiate from a central node, and lesser categories are sub-branches of larger branches. Categories can represent words, ideas, tasks, or other items related to a central key word or idea.
In the past, linear notes were needed but communication risked being cluttered or misinterpreted. Mind Mapping removes these difficulties and allows rapid expansion and exploration of an idea resulting in a clear and concise picture or 'map' of all the relevant interlinked points for inclusion. The use of shapes, colours and dimensions as visual stimulants further add to this simple and powerful tool.
Mind maps can be drawn by hand, either as "rough notes" during a lecture or meeting, for example, or as higher quality pictures when more time is available.
