Tony Buzan

Tony Buzan is the inventor of the now world-renowned Mind Map, and is well-known as an educational consultant, speaker and prolific author. His invention of Mind Mapping in the late 1960s was born out of frustration with traditional note taking revision techniques. He has since developed the Mind Map technique through books, TV appearances and his work as a highly-regarded speaker. Through iMindMap, Tony and Chris have finally established a synthesis between interactive, intelligent software and the creative freedom of a sketched Mind Map.

He claims to have worked with “corporate entities and businesses all over the world; academics; Olympic athletes; children of all ages; governments; and high profile individuals, in teaching them how to maximize the use of their brain power.”

He is the multi-million copy bestselling author of Head First, Head Strong and The Mind Map Book. He appears regularly on television and lectures all over the world. His work has been published in 100 countries and 30 languages.
