How to Mind Map

In this quick one minute video I give you a demo of how to use mind mapping to generate creative ideas. In this video I’m working from a rough mind map I did at a training day (during the summer of 2019) with Hannah Martin who runs the Talented Ladies Club, where I captured the ideas on display in this map. I’m redrawing the map to make the ideas stand out so I can begin to draw connections between them.

In the following two training videos (each around 10 mins long) I take you through the process of creating a mini mind map – so you understand the principles involved – and then I create a topic-based mind map to demonstrate how the technique can be used in practice. Start by creating a mini mind map about yourself, because you won’t have to research the topic!
