Why does Mind Mapping inspire you?
Patrick discovered mind mapping in 1994 by reading Tony Buzan’s book “dessines moi l’intelligence”. He eventually realized that he was in unison with “radiant and networked thinking”. This approach has became a true “ecology of life” in all projects. : “We see our environment and its interactions differently ; this adds great value in the projects”.
