New Series - Meet The Experts

Editor's Note: New Series - Meet the Mind Mapping Experts

Our new series, ‘Meet the Experts’, introduces a number of Mind Mapping Masters. They are not only masters because they have mastered the art of Mind Mapping, they have also taught it and even adapted it from the original ideas.

By exposing you to their work, you could discover, not only various styles of Mind Mapping, but also many applications. Mind Maps are used in so many different ways, that you could spend a whole lifetime applying it in various facets of your life.

Using Mind Maps Magazine brings this all together in one beautiful and easy to use publication, so that you don’t have to spend hours and hours looking for experts and what they are doing. We bring them directly to you.

As usual, if you have any feedback, please send it to us via our Contact Form.
