Tony Buzan Licensed Instructor Training – what do you learn?

This is – as you can well imagine one of the most frequently asked question when it come to our training … what exactly will you learn on our two day course?

Well the first thing to make quite clear – is that we consider this course to be the very beginning of your career as a Tony Buzan Licensed Instructor .. so no previous expertise or training in Mind Mapping is a requirement for joining us.  In fact we often find that real “beginners” end up being the most proficient as they have less “bad habits” to tweak to become excellent.

The first thing to state is that of course we  WILL be focusing on Mind Mapping in accordance with Tony Buzan’s original (and periodically revised) Laws of  Mind Maps. We focus on the “pen and paper” method and until we can identify a really good piece of software that is actually about Mind Mapping and not some other variation of Visual Thinking we won’t recommend any software app or package.

So that said .. what do we cover?

      Hi Ester – there is a new programme that has been created that is more appropriate for these Covid Days. You are part of my “Creating Family Challenge” Group so I will cover it in there with you later this week if you like? XX
