Name: Alexis van Dam
Location: The Netherlands
Level: iMindMap Licensed Instructor
As a Communications Consultant I have discovered the power of MindMapping since 2007. Visualizations and design are important to me ever since I left High School. After I discovered MindMapping I started to use it very often. I decided to further improve my skills and became a trainer in electronically and hand drawn MindMapping at Word of Minds (a network agency founded in The Netherlands).
At World of Minds I train people to use MindMapping in different fields of business application such as Knowledge Management, Project Management, Account Management & Sales, Meetings & Brainstorms. I have trained people ranging from governmental bodies, businesses, text writers, agencies etc. The most fascinating thing about training people in MindMapping is seeing the spark in their eyes when they realize the power of this thinking technique and the things they could do with it. Besides training people I coach people in specific applications of MindMapping and visualization within their work processes. At events and congresses I facilitate with live mindmapping sessions. On a big screen the audience can see the presentations and speaker live. Afterwards we publish MindMaps in the form of a PDF or website. As a consultant I advice people on working with information and knowledge and how to use visualization in that process.
Besides working at World of Minds I am manager of the international community Hypershifters. This community has a focus on visualization and tooling such as mindmapping. At the end of 2009 Hypershifters had a scoop with live mindmapping at the TEDxAmsterdam event.
Trainers of Hypershifters organizes trainings courses in iMindMap at its trainings centre in the Netherlands and abroad. Hypershifters works together with World of Minds and has a several traing courses, ranging from workshops such as hand drawn MindMapping, courses such the application of iMindMap, MindMapping and the Hypershifters training (New Way of Work) etc.
Hypershifters has several Buzan iMindmap Licensed Instructors available.
