About me:
I have spent many years researching the workings of the brain and transforming this knowledge into models that can empower each person to use his/her intellect to the maximum. There has never been a time when the workforce needed this brain training more; fewer employees are expected to do more in less time. It follows that they will often be expected learn new skills in order to carry out their extensive duties. No doubt employers are also seeking training which can be given in less time while still achieving quantifiably positive results. I endorse wholeheartedly the Next Generation Learning @ Work campaign, which delivers excellent advice on how e-learning and blended learning can help companies and individuals to develop their potential to the maximum. I am holding a series of one-day seminars in London on the 3-6 March 2009. Places are limited, so please book early at www.buzantraining.com to avoid disappointment. I hope to meet you again there.

Thank you Tony for a great key-note and a reminder to walk the walk... Being the parent of two agressive learners, (9 and 12 yrs) your talk made it dawn on me that I am working had to support them in all but the right way. It's time to pull out your book and embark on a new journey.
Thank you for the inspiration!

Hi Tony, I am very interested in the use of mind maps and am a prolific user myself - although they are somewhat different to the ones that you advocate (I find your structure has far too many 'rules' for my non-conformist mind!!). I am also heavily involved in the world of knowledge management (I am a lead facilitator for the Knowledge and Innovation Network at Warwick Business School) I would like to find out more about your views on the usefulness of KM as a knowledge capture tool and learning technique.

Hi Tony,

I did like the way you interspersed your presentation with opportunities for discussion and reflection. Putting the theory into practice!

Tony, I have been using mind maps since '74 - doodling my way through life and work. Your keynote was really mind-opening and I am keen to explore the benefits of social mind mapping (crayons or on-line) with colleagues and family to open up new possibilities at work and home. Regards Arthur.

You truly inspired me with your words at the conference Tony. I am now going back to basics and honing my memory and creativity skills and 'learning how to learn', in the hope of inspiring others in my organisation.

Tony,

Thank you for you illuminating keynote at this year's conference. Truly, an inspirational lecture. My early career focused on infant development. Thus, I could fully appreciate the subtleties of your presentation as it relates to our capacity as homo sapiens to continually evolve. Alas, I will continue to explore through such techniques as the one you have introduced (mind mapping) and others how to further tap into my own brilliant mind and to encourage others to do the same. May the year bring you great joy and enlightened thought. Kindly, Margaret Kelsey in the US

Hello Tony,

I'm very much looking forward to hearing you speak again. The last time was at the UK Festival of the Mind in 2005, which really was an incredible three days.

Barry
