As Wikipedia notes: A mind map is a diagram used to represent words, ideas, tasks or other items linked to and arranged around a central key word or idea. Mind maps are used to generate, visualize, structure, and classify ideas, and as an aid in study, organization, problem solving, decision making and writing.

Mindmapping can be intuitive, but, to do it most effectively, mindmapping techniques can be taught as a skill. This workshop will give you the tools you need to:

improve your memory
take notes more effectively
improve brainstorming sessions
increase ability to learn from books & lectures
