Who Am I

He claims to have worked with “corporate entities and businesses all over the world; academics; Olympic athletes; children of all ages; governments; and high profile individuals, in teaching them how to maximize the use of their brain power.” As a popular psychology author, Tony Buzan has written on subjects relating to the brain, “genius quotient (GQ)”, spiritual intelligence, memory, creativity and speed reading.
He is the founder and President of the Brain Foundation (not to be confused with various medical-related bodies with the same name) and also the Brain Trust Charity, the World Memory Championships and the World Championships of the Brain. He was a co-founder of London’s Mind Body Spirit Festival as well as the Mind Sports Olympiad.
When Speaking Minds was founded in 2007 in New Zealand, little did we envisage that this would grow into an international brand with offices in India and London in less than a decade. We set up the business to share what we had learnt, from the privileges we have had in our jobs – of access to knowledge.
Bringing India to the rest of the world was our driving force.
The dna of our business is genuinely about sharing knowledge with the
world, from thought leaders and experts who are notable achievers in
their field. Raga D'silva quit her highly successful corporate career in

knowledge, insights, motivation from exceptional talent with the
corporate world, globally.
