GOAL is an international humanitarian agency, dedicated to ensuring those living in severe poverty have access to the essential needs and rights in life. They are a non-denominational, non-governmental and non-political organisation.
In this article, Vicki Aken, the agency’s Country Director for Syria, discusses how Mind Mapping and iMindMap have become essential for coordinating all of the operations for the many issues that the agency handle.
“In Syria, our work focuses on delivering food to more than 250,00 people per month; restoring water systems that provide clean water to more than 350,000 people, rebuilding markets through livelihood and cash and voucher programming, repairing shelters, and providing emergency distributions to people newly displaced by the conflict.”
“Mind Mapping uses the brain in the way it was designed, saves time, improves results and is fun. How can any business person be without this powerful tool?”
Stephen C Lundin, author bestselling, FISH!
As we advance in our careers, we are expected to cope with increasing workloads and responsibility, yet we remain limited by the 24 hours that are allotted to us each day.

We have all been there – monotonous, long and boring presentations are enough to make anyone shudder and run for the hills. A successful presentation hinges on your ability to seduce your audience. When Steve Jobs stood up in 2001 to introduce the first iPod, he simply stated:
New professional style
You can now select a ‘Professional’ or ‘Creative’ style for your iMindMap maps. To start creating a Mind Map with the new professional style, select the ‘Professional’ option next to the central idea picker when starting a new map.
