Tony Buzan (born 2 June 1942, pronounced /ˈbuːzən/) is an author and educational consultant. He is a proponent of the techniques of Mind Mapping[1] and mental literacy. 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."[2]

Background

Buzan was born in Palmers Green, Enfield, Middlesex, is an alumnus of Kitsilano Secondary School where he was Head Boys Prefect 1959-60. He is probably best known for his book, Use Your Head, his promotion of mnemonic systems and his Mind Mapping techniques. He launched his own software program to support Mind Mapping called iMindMap in December 2006. His website cites trademarks on the phrase 'Mind Maps' which he has registered in many countries.[citation needed]

Following his 1970s series for the BBC, many of his ideas have been set into his series of five books: Use Your Memory, Master Your Memory, Use Your Head, The Speed Reading Book and The Mind Map Book. He has since authored or co-authored over 100 books that have appeared in 30 languages.

As a popular psychology author, Tony Buzan has written on subjects relating to the brain, "genius quotient (GQ)", spiritual intelligence, memory, creativity and speed reading. He is the founder and President of the Brain Foundation (not to be confused with various medical-related bodies with the same name) and also the Brain Trust Charity, the World Memory Championships[3] and the World Championships of the Brain. He was a co-founder of London's Mind Body Spirit Festival as well as the Mind Sports Olympiad[4].
