About Tony Buzan and the Think Buzan System
“Tony didn’t invent the brain. He did invent the instructions”.
John Husbands, Institute of Management
In 2008 Tony received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Creativity Association (ACA). In 1994 Forbes Magazine named Tony one of five top international speakers, along with Mikhail Gorbachev, Henry Kissinger and Margaret Thatcher, and reported that “Buzan shows corporate executives how to hotwire their creative energies.” He has authored or co-authored over 100 books on the brain, translated into 33 languages and published in over 150 countries.
Tony’s courses are lauded internationally, and he has been described as “a mesmerizing speaker” by Stephen Lundin, author of the five-million-copy bestselling ‘FISH!’, who went on to say that “in a few hours he communicated to a business audience the practical portion of what I had spent four years studying.”
Raymond Keene, of The Times newspaper in London, declared that “Tony Buzan will do for the brain what Stephen Hawking did for the universe… there can be no clearer or more effective mental tool”. Tony’s achievements have also been commented on by Maurice Gavin, Chairman of The Institute for Management Studies “Tony Buzan, the father of Mind Mapping, has impacted millions with his thinking and toolset. I am not only a huge fan, but also a devout user of his Mind Mapping thinking process.”
The brand new ThinkBuzan System will be making its global debut on Tony’s US Tour. After decades of research into the brain and how it works, Tony Buzan has synthesized his range of knowledge and expertise into the ultimate workshop for fine tuning your brain. His Excellency Dr Abdul Hussein Ali Mirza, Minister for Oil & Gas in Bahrain, observes that “Tony Buzan is a man on an impressive mission – to unlock the power of our brains and show us how to tap and use our creative genius.” With a potent combination of over 40 years of study, and co-hosted by ThinkBuzan’s CEO and author of ‘Mind Maps for Business’, Chris Griffiths, this new system is designed to maximise your creativity and give you the tools and techniques to conquer any area of your personal or business life.
The ThinkBuzan System is built around a number of cutting edge techniques created to address key areas such as; working creatively to generate new ideas and find innovative solutions, conquering an overwhelming workload with ease, making the right decisions quickly, combating information overload with Rapid Reading and Recall, and strategic thinking and goal setting to boost personal and business development. A one stop shop for addressing all business situations and demands, the ThinkBuzan System is constructed to maximise your potential and help you achieve unimagined levels of success.
Tony’s US Tour events are an ideal opportunity for all executives, consultants, trainers and managers, as well as anyone working within the education sector, marketing and PR, learning and development and human resources. However, Tony Buzan’s mind-enhancing techniques can be applied to any situation, be it personal or business, so everyone can benefit from attending the workshops. The ThinkBuzan System workshops and Buzan accredited courses are all being run for the first time ever in the USA, and bookings are already coming in from across the globe. As said by John Husbands, of the Institute of Management, “Tony didn’t invent the brain. He did invent the instructions”.
