A Personal Message from Tony Buzan

Many people know the great importance of creativity in ensuring survival, competitive edge and success but very few know how to unleash this power that is within them. Great artists and geniuses like Leonardo Da Vinci, Thomas Edison, Picasso, Mozart, Charles Darwin and William Shakespeare were among the users of creative intelligence techniques.

By enhancing your creative intelligence, you will certainly see the improvement and rewards flowing into virtually all aspects of what you do professionally or personally.

It all begins with your brain, the core of your creative intelligence. You will love it once you know it. Improving your creative intelligence is one of the easiest, most fun and enjoyable tasks you can ever imagine!

Mind Mapping in action:
How New York got back on its feet after 9/11 : The Con Edison case
After 9/11 and the collapse of the World Trade Center, all the vital utilities to large areas of the city were thrown into chaos. The communication lines, gas, electricity, water and sewerage networks were in disarray. This hemorrhaging of the utilities presented a genuine threat to businesses and residents alike.
Con Edison, the supplier of gas and electricity to the residents of New York, faced the massive challenge of restoring power to the residents of Manhattan. However, the company had experience with one crucial tool - Mind Maps. Con Edison hosted teams from all regions of public utility to develop a complex action plan to route their way through the crisis. A mega Mind-Map was drawn up, on which all the problems and necessary solutions were laid out. Each step was prioritized and sequenced, and the impact of the failure of one utility on another examined, and this formed the basis of an operations guide.
Con Edison created a Mind Map in conjunction with a large-screen monitor to provide live-time data displays. The Mind Map included web-links to all key documents. In this way, information was easily disseminated among teams. Normal utilities' service was resumed efficiently and, by identifying and documenting the risks faced and the dangers involved, safely.

Rave reviews for Tony Buzan's Mind-mapping techniques:
Simplifying complexities at work:
"Mind Maps have permeated Oracle. They are part of a drive for greater innovation within the company. Mind Maps have enabled us to improve our effectiveness. We are a complicated business so Mind Maps help - I could not manage the complexity of my work without Mind Maps. I have often used Mind Maps to deal with the complexities of how we should move forward. Frankly, they are invaluable."
- Alan Matcham, Director of Oracle, EMEA industries

"..a new generation of Mind-Mapping software can also be used as a digital "blank slate" to help connect and synthesize ideas and date - and ultimately create new knowledge."
- Bill Gates, Founder of Microsoft

"If I am concerned about having too much or what to cover in a speech, I organize it by Mind Mapping the material."
- Ken Blanchard, Author of One Minute Manager
"All my business plans in the past were lists. It's very difficult because the brain doesn't work like a list. If you make a Mind Map for the week or a Mind Map for the day, you can see the route that you need to take to achieve your objective. Using Mind Maps, I did my entire business plan all the way up to 20 million in a year's time, in half an hour."
- Dwain Dunnell, Slimtone Weight-Loss System
"Mind Mapping enables me to do in minutes what used to take me hours, sometimes even days."
- Jeffrey Mayer, Author of "Time Management for Dummies"
