your own genius.
A Mind Mapping will:
Improve your thinking,
planning, and problem solving skills.
Increase your ability to
generate ideas and organize them.
Give you a powerful new
way to take and make notes, and study new information.
Enable you to make
better presentations and run more effective meetings.
Help you identify your
goals and values.
Wake up your brain and
make thinking FUN!

"It (Mind Mapping) is a very unique and undoubtedly valuable
skill. There is a freedom in a Mind Mapping that the rigidity of an
outline does not have. I hope, in fact, I am certain, that my continual
use of it will help me learn, study, problem solve, & understand

Just wanted to share with you my first experience with mind mapping a presentation. The presentation was a 40-minute training session on storytelling, part of the first annual masters class training sessions offered by the Susquehanna Advanced Toastmasters on June 11.
Some background, I have done very few training sessions, I seldom speak longer than 5-7 minutes. My usual approach is to think about the topic for some time, develop an outline and then type the entire presentation. I then read, and reread the presentation, record it and listen to it as I drive, I eventually become familiar with the content that I can deliver the speech without notes, but I’ll bring the manuscript to the lectern and flip through pages to make sure I don’t miss important points. This has worked for me for those 5-7 minute speeches, but the longer the speech, the less practical is that method.
Facing a 40 minute speech on storytelling, just a month or so after attending your mind mapping seminar, I decided to give mind mapping a try. I mapped out the entire speech on an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper in a couple of hours. The next day I refined that mind map. I then took a few minutes each day to look at it, to think about introductory statements to each segment, and two days before the seminar I made a final version of the mind map using imap software. I placed the one sheet of paper at the lectern before my presentation and referred to it once in a while during the presentation.
I found that the mind mapping process—beginning with a central idea, using short phrases and pictures—actually helped me remember the content with less effort than the type, read, record, and listen model I had been doing for a 5-7 minute speech.
I also found the process allowed me to quickly adapt my presentation to circumstances occurring during the presentation. In fact, as I was concluding the presentation I saw an important connection between audience members who say they don’t have stories and the typical audience. I was able to quickly and seamlessly add this information as my conclusion.
At the end of your mind mapping seminar you told me that mind mapping would change the way I approached preparing for speeches and presentations. I left the seminar intrigued but not convinced. Having relied on a simple mind map for a 40 minute presentation, I am now convinced that mind mapping has changed the way I will organize my thoughts before beginning any project.
