[26:27] Toastmasters’ most prestigious award is the Golden Gavel. It has been given annually since 1959 to an individual distinguished in the fields of communication and leadership.

Toastmasters International has named Tony Buzan its 2016 Golden Gavel recipient for his leadership in the field of memory research. The award recognizes Buzan’s influence as the creator of Mind Mapping, a popular technique for improving memory, innovation and thought processes. Buzan will be honored this August at the 85th Annual Toastmasters International Convention in Washington, D.C.

A British author of more than 140 books translated into 40 languages, he was nominated for the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize. He is an authority on principles of learning, productivity and efficiency. A Mind Map is essentially a diagram that represents ideas and concepts branching off from a central idea. It enhances memory through the visual representation of ideas and concepts. Buzan teaches the use of Mind Mapping through training events around the globe, including at prominent companies such as Microsoft, IBM, Walt Disney, British Telecom, Goldman Sachs and the British Broadcasting Corporation.

Buzan has spent more than 40 years researching how the brain works and perfecting his Mind Mapping technique. His best-selling books include Use Your Head, The Memory Book, The Speed Reading Book and The Mind Map Book.

In addition, Buzan is the co-founder and president of the Brain Trust Charity, which aims to “maximize the ability of each individual to unlock and deploy the vast capacity of the human brain.” In 1991, he cofounded the World Memory Championships, an annual competition where participants memorize as much information as possible within a given time.

Life Mastery Online Course
If life had an instruction book... this would be it.

I have put together an intensive online course on Life Mastery based on decades of research and experience. I invite you to participate at 90% off the release date rate while I complete all the lessons, with the expected completion by the end of 2019.

In this course, you will…

  • Learn how to really connect with others
  • Learn the tricks to having strong relationships
  • Learn what you need to know about your health and staying fit
  • Learn how to increase your overall well-being
  • Learn how to be better person
  • Learn how to be a responsible member of society through improving your critical thinking skills
  • Learn how to be more creative
  • Learn how to sell
  • Learn how to handle money—and make more of it
  • Learn about the major religions of the world
  • Learn about getting a job—and creating one
  • Learn about success and how to achieve it
  • And more

This course is a result of the continued research that suggest adults in the United States today are woefully unprepared for today's social and professional environment. People struggle with effective communication, relationships, weight and health issues, depression, life purpose, achievement, discerning fact from fiction, selling ideas to others, earning enough to live comfortably, finding jobs, and overall peace of mind. These are problems that get in the way of living a happy and fulfilling life when one's energy is spent on just trying to get by. This course addresses each of those problems, and many more, with the goal of helping you avoid those problems while focusing on what energizes you most.

By the end of this course, you will be on the right track to designing the life you want to live, and living it well!
