A mind map alternative to help you present training material and conference talks

A talk on a mind map alternative, the knowledge canvas, to organise training and learning content to tell the story and help people learn and revise. A digital friendly format that also works with online videos. With particular emphasis to cater for those who have a neurodiversity and prefer a clear structure. This practice has received praise from people with Dyspraxia and has been used by a training company. Complements practices such as training from the back of the room as an additional way people can be trained, retain and remember knowledge especially in a digital context so you don't come away from conferences forgetting most of it! This talk references the format recommended by TED and applies it visually to aid structure and learning.
