Take the Pressure Off Yourself Workshop -- Mind Maps

In Marlene Burn’s workshop, members learned how to make and use simple mind maps. Practicing using these maps for impromptu speaking showed how easy speaking can be by using a mind map with the 5 Ws – who, what, where, when, why – and how – for added depth. Mind mapping can be used any time, anywhere, to simplify speech making.

The workshop was exuberant with lots of impromptu speeches from participants. There were many speechmakers in the making. The workshop reinforced mind-mapping skills. Every convention, region, council, and club should have a mind-mapping workshop. Members in the workshop can now present a workshop at club on this skill and develop members’ impromptu speaking skills.

You can find more information about mind mapping on the website.
