"Save P1,000 when you sign up before August 8, 2008 for our Early Bird rate!"

Unleash your mind's potential and the genius in you! Take advantage of another opportunity to learn the revolutionary thinking tool - Mind Maps through our 12th Mind Mapping: Creative Thinking for Leaders and Managerson August 28-29, 2008 at the Edsa Shangri-La Manila.

Our brain is a sleeping giant. Many experts believe that we use as little as 1% of our brain, spending very little time on:

  • creative thinking applied to different disciplines
  • concentration as a function of time
  • memory performance during and after the assimilation of information
  • the art of communication for memory
  • the effect of our modes of thought on habit patterns and change.

Statistics show that, on average, executives spend:

  • 30% of their time reading and sorting through information
  • 20% of their time solving problems and thinking creatively
  • 20% of their time communicating

What if YOU are given the operations manual of the brain to unleash your brain's full potential and creative genius?

Invest in your intellectual capital and see how it will change and affect your organization!

Workshop Overview

The Mind Mapping: Creative Thinking for Leaders and Managers Workshop™ is a training program that will help unleash your creativity. By teaching you how to MindMap, you will discover how to use your whole brain (right and left) to create original ideas and thoughts.

As Tony Buzan explains in his Bestselling book Mind Maps at Work, "Mind Maps can help you at work in an infinite number of ways, because like you, Mind Maps are workers. When Mind Maps are at work, they work hard; enabling you to think radiantly and unleash your own incredible potential-they will become your allies: they will be there to support you in any working situation."

Workshop Design

The name workshop says it all. While our two-day workshop is led by an engaging Buzan Center Philippines Facilitator, you'll soon realize this is not just your ordinary sit-and-soak event. You can be assured that it will be an enlightening and fun program that you've ever participated in.

Who Should Attend

  • Leaders, managers, supervisors, directors, executives, and teams who give importance to organizational development and completion of goals and finding solutions
  • Trainers and HR professions who are responsible for implementing innovation, creativity and leadership programs within their organizations.

Action Planning

Nothing is more important than transferring what you learn in the classroom back to your work environment. That is why we purposely schedule time during the workshop for you to create your own Mind Maps and apply it to your projects at work or at home. Our Facilitator will walk you through critical steps so that you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of this wonderful tool.
