My first contact to the work of Edward De Bono was, when i collected material about creativity to teach my students at a design university. Before that i have done a lot mindmapping. It took me quite some time to find out and even more time to appreciate the power of various tools (my favorite book over the years: "Serious Creativity" and "Lateral Thinking", "How to have a beautiful mind" is my favorite present to anyone).
Now, after more than 10 years struggling and trying hard to get it working, i have become a certified trainer. After starting a few companies in the last 3 years (with partners in areas like: high tech environmental, consultancy, web-solutions) i decided to focus on just a few things, that became the center of myself: thinking in new ways, train hard and develop physical skills as well (martial arts, qi gong, etc.) and tell it to others.
I am looking forward talking to many of you here in this community. All the best to all of you and see you soon.
