Benefits of Mind Map Presentations

When you create a mind map, its subject is always located right at the center, with all related topics branching off from it in all directions. This way, the map visualizes hierarchies and connections between individual ideas in a two-dimensional structure. Seeing how things relate to each other makes it easier for audiences to follow the presenter’s line of thought and comprehend the information that is being delivered.

Who Benefits From Mind Map Presentations?

A mind map presentation will captivate and engage your audience, whether you’re in the lecture hall, the meeting room or on the big stage. Here are just a few examples of people who benefit greatly from this fantastic format:


Present complex topics and new concepts in a way that’s easy to comprehend and memorize for students. Share your map with them so they can take notes during your talk right inside the map


Use mind maps to quickly prepare presentations for the classroom: Just collect all your notes and topics in a map, add some images and colors, and then turn the map into a dynamic slideshow within seconds.


Efficiently deliver presentations to the busy executive: all relevant information can be visualized on one single page; additional information can easily be stored in the form of notes, links and attachments.


Visualize your ideas and creative concepts in a mind map to clearly communicate your vision to others. Use connections, colors, icons, images and embed videos to deliver effective presentations.


Present reports, project ideas, business strategies and proposals to managers and co-workers during meetings. Directly export your ideas as actionable tasks once your suggestions have been approved.

Public Speakers

Create presentations that are both engaging and memorable. Mind maps help your audience see ‘the bigger picture’ and easily follow your train of thought. A presentation format worthy of the big stage!

Start your presentation by showing the mind map as a whole. This will allow your audience to see the ‘bigger picture’ and get a feeling for how everything is connected.

Zoom in on individual parts of the map using MindMeister’s presentation mode. Zoom back out every now and then to ensure your audience always knows where they currently are in the map.
