Business and educational presentations often need to show complex information and relationships between various concepts. However, unlike traditional presentations on paper, on white boards or those that used PowerPoint, you can now bring interactive mind maps into use for the same purpose.
If you thought that mind maps are only good as memory tools, think again. You can use the interactive versions of these maps now to let your brain function more effectively. Such maps will also help you to grow creatively and think logically. Starting from note making, time management, note taking, formulating business plans and concepts, marketing strategies, mission statements, goal setting etc, these mind maps can help you create effective presentations.
To begin with, interactive mind maps offer you navigation control that let you breeze through your presentation without fumbling around in front of your audience. Most of these maps work well with a wireless presentation device, mouse, and keyboard shortcuts.
Another positive aspect of interactive mind maps is that you can add notes to them based on the feedback of your audience. Since you can do this while the presentation is going on, reviewing a business plan or some similar activities become easier within a single session.
Interactive mind maps act as you visual database where a single click on the mouse can show the relationship between topics and subtopics. In case you need to integrate e-mails, files, and web pages into your presentation, such maps offer you a seamless way to do the same without any difficulty.
The ability to configure such maps is yet another advantage, where you can decide upon which of the map elements need to be hidden or displayed. In other words, you can customize your interactive mind maps so that they meet your unique requirements. For instance, presentations made to a large audience work well where less map elements are on display while those for a smaller workgroup often become similar to a working session where you can choose to show more map elements.
Since there are various mapping applications available in the market for making presentations, you will need to test the trial version of multiple programs to assess which one fits your needs the best. Try creating several mind maps that you wish to use in your presentations and see how each program fares as far as your desired mode and style are concerned. These considerations will help you to choose the right application for creating stylish and superior presentations with interactive mind maps.
