Mind Map Participants

Published by:

Mind Map course with Phillip Holt in Istanbul, TurkeyMind Maps (click to visit web site) course held in the Taxim Hill hotel, located in Taxim Square, Istanbul, proved to be a fun and easy learning day for me and the participants.

Not only did the participants learn, but my translator for the day, Aylin Mutlu, also learned how easy it is to translate and to learn at the same time.

It was good to meet with one of the participants, Sahika Alkan, (left of the picture) in another course a couple of days later, who has followed my training and purchased a good set of coloured pens and a good quality art pad, to practice her Mind Maps and record her meetings and her plans for the future.

Mind Maps, as created by Tony Buzan, is a way to use the brain as it should be used, to capture information quickly, to retain the information in the brain and memory, and giving us a quick and easy method to revise and access information.

I have been training Mind Maps as a Licensed Trainer of Tony Buzan for a number years, all over the world, to the general public, students, universities and corporates, including HSBC Bank China, Turkcell and Global Communications from Turkey.

A new Translator

Published by:

As I do not speak any language other than English, I will use translators to teach my courses in most of the countries I work.

Without the professional work of these people I could not work.

It surprises me that how they can work for so many hours without a break, working in two languages, I only can work in one.

My latest is Aylin Mutlu from Ankara. The first time she has worked with me. It takes a time to get used to my language and methods of teaching, but it is a joy to see how quickly see succeeds.

Zihin Haritaları – Mind Maps – Türkçe – Turkish

Published by:

                                                                                                                                               English version

Zihin Haritaları
“Beynin İsviçre Çakısı” olarak da adlandırılır.

Tony Buzan tarafından geliştirilen bu teknik dünya çapında yüzlerce ve binlerce insan ve şirket tarafından kullanılmaktadır. Zihin Haritalarını Çin, Malezya, Sri Lanka, Hindistan, Suudi Arabistan, Türkiye, İtalya ve İngiltere’de başarılı bir biçimde bireylere, gruplara, okullara, üniversitelere ve şirketlere öğretiyorum. HSBC Bankası, Shanghai Airlines, Arrow Weld, Global Communications, Sheffield Üniversitesi, vb gibi kuruluşlar bunlardan bazıları…

Zihin Haritaları yaşamımızın birçok alanında uygulanabilir:-

   Kişisel
   Aile
   Eğitim  
   İş Hayatı
   Profesyonel

Zihin Haritalarını bu kadar güçlü kılan resimler, renkler, hareket, anahtar sözcükler ve birbirini takip eden canlı fikirlerden yararlanarak beyni olması gerektiği gibi, beynin her iki yarısını birden kullanmasıdır.
 
Beynin sağ ve sol olmak üzere iki yarısı olduğunu düşünürsek, sol beyin mantıksal, matematik beynin olarak bilinir; sağ beyin ise yaratıcı beyindir. Dolayısıyla eğitim geçmişimizi düşündüğümüzde son derece sol beyin ile öğretildiğimizi ve bu şekilde çalıştığımızı fark ederiz. Siyah beyaz, düz bir sıra halinde yazıyoruz. Mantıksal sıraya göre düşünüyoruz.

Beyin kapasitemizin yalnızca yarısını kullanıyoruz, beynimizin sol yarısını.

Zihin Haritalarını kullanmak, beynimizin sağ yarısını, yani rengi, hareketi, yaratıcılığı seven beyni de devreye alarak işleme gücümüzü ikiye katlar.

                                                      
                                                      
Zihin Haritalarını kimler kullanıyor?

HSBC Bankası Çin’deki Eğitim Departmanlarında Zihin Haritalarını uyguladı. Tüm kurslar verilmeden önce Zihin Haritaları yapılıyor ve kursların gelişimi Zihin Haritaları ile oluşturuluyor.

İtalyan Devletindeki belirli hizmet bölümleri Zihin Haritalarını kullanarak sahadaki yetkililere istihbarat aktarıyor.

Öğrenciler Zihin Haritalarını ile ders notları alıp bunların üzerinden geçerek daha iyi hatırlıyor. İskoçya’daki bir Tıp Fakültesi, tıp bölümünün tamamının Zihin Haritasını çıkartarak tek bir kitap halinde öğrencilere verdi.

Boeing Uçakları mühendislik manüellerinin 7.5 metre büyüklüğünde bir Zihin Haritasını çıkardı, böylece mühendis ekibi yıllarca sürecek bir çalışmayı birkaç haftada tamamlayarak yaklaşık $11 milyon dolar tasarruf yaptı.

EDS (Electronic Data Systems, Nabisco, vb şirketler personellerinin tek günlük seminerlerde Zihin Haritaları yoluyla dört ila altı kitaplık bilgiyi öğrenmesini sağlıyor.

Reklamlarda, tanıtımlarda ve web sayfalarında da Zihin Haritaları uygulanabilmekte.

                           

Zihin Haritalarını, dakikada 20,000 – 30,000 sözcük çekme yeteneği olan PhotoReading içerisine katarak öğretiyoruz.

Ben Zihin Haritalarını konuşmalarımı, sunumlarımı, kursları hazırlamak için kullanıyorum ve böylece hiçbir noktayı gözden kaçırmıyorum.

Bir günlük Zihin Haritaları kursu size ve şirketinize bu yöntemin arka planını, neden Zihin Haritalarını kullandığımızı örnekle pratik yaparak öğretmektedir.

Memory and Mind Maps

Published by:

In a very hot Istanbul, it seems that the air conditioners cannot cope, we finish another great course.


This is a corporate course for Global Communications, part of the Turkcell mobile phone company, the largest in Turkey.   

                                                      Mind Maps and Memory, with lots of laughter and fun.


The participants helped me decide whether to have a fast-food meal or not, successfully recorded a lecture, helped me with my weekly shopping, and more all on mind maps.

They successfully remembered after being distracted for a number of hours, even from the previous day, sixty (60) random words, given to them only once, the names of fifteen people the day after initially learning them, telephone numbers, and facts, facts, and more facts.


I know that the information from the training will be implemented company wide, as other companies I have trained have done, HSBC bank, Shanghai Airlines, and world wide companies, Boeing Aircraft Corporation, Axia Insurance all saving millions of dollars, and saving time vast amounts of time.


Learning can be productive and such fun.  

NLP Practitioner PhotoReading and Mind Maps Courses

Published by:

Today I had a telephone conversation with a gentleman in the UK about taking/participating in NLP courses, and the vast numbers of trainers offering trainings. Could I advise him? How he could become good at NLP? what was the correct path to take?

My strategy has been to go to the originators, the developers, those that hold the intellectual rights to the technologies I want to learn. See articles of my journey of learning, click. I do not want to learn from someone who has read a book, heard from someone else, or who has plagiarised someone else’s work. I respect others knowledge, give credit when required, and seek official accreditation to teach their work as a licensed or certified trainer. 

I told him that if he could, why not attend a course given by Richard Bandler himself on NLP, there would be many hundreds of people on the course, which the gentleman did not like, he wanted a smaller participant number.

Why not come to Turkey? The courses are much cheaper. Accommodation is very much cheaper and flights are very cheap.

What a great idea. Come to Turkey to attend the next Certified, Society of NLP Practitioner course, given by my good self, here in Istanbul.

I am running a number of courses in the next few weeks, in conjunction with NLPGrup.

      Society of NLP Practitioner        9 July – 15 July      
      
      PhotoReading                              30 June – 1 July                        

      Mind Maps                                    8 July                           

Others are following over the next few months.

All courses are given in English, I speak only English, and there is translation into Turkish.

Mind Maps

Mind Maps has been called “the Swiss Army Knife for the Brain”.

Developed by Tony Buzan, it is used by hundreds and thousands of people and companies worldwide. I have successfully taught Mind Maps in China, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, India, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Italy and the UK, to individuals, public groups, schools, universities, and companies. Organisations such as HSBC Bank, Shanghai Airlines, Arrow Weld, Global Communications, Sheffield University et al.

Mind Maps can be used in many areas of our lives:-

   Personal
   Family
   Educational   
   Business
   Professional

What makes Mind Maps so powerful is that they use the brain as it should be used, using both sides of the brain’s hemispheres, with the use of pictures, colour and movement, key words, and progressive radiant ideas.
 
If we consider that the brain has two hemispheres, the left and right, the left being understood to be the logical, mathematical brain and the right being the creative brain, we can see from our educational background that we have been taught and we work very left brain. We write in black and white, in straight lines. We think in logical sequences.

We only use half our brain capacity, only our left hemisphere.

Using Mind Maps brings into play our right hemisphere, the brain that likes colour, movement, creativity, doubling our processing power.
                                                      

We implement Mind Maps in PhotoReading, the ability to absorb words at 20,000 – 30,000 WPM.

I use Mind Maps for speeches, presentations, talks, and I never leave anything out.

The one day Mind Map course teaches you and your company the background, why we use Mind Maps, with loads of examples to practice.

Mind Maps Bangalore, my last day

Published by:

Today is my last day in Bangalore, India, after a rather full program of training.

Yesterday, (Monday), I put on a one day Mind Map course with 22 participants.

I did not have to travel far as the course was held in the hotel I am staying in, aptly called Stay & Work, so I caught the lift from floor 2 to floor 5.

Apart from being thrown into darkness many times due to power cuts the day proved a huge success.

                           

Here’s looking forward to returning to Bangalore in October for a mix of Mind Maps and Memory, PhotoReading and Hypnosis.
