We've two places already booked for the lucky winners who will get the chance to work with Tony in his seminar on Friday 6 March at the Savoy Place Conference Centre, London SW1. Just take a look at this great photograph of our political leader, and think of an appropriate caption. Tony Buzan will be judging the entries, so get creative! The deadline is Friday 30 January.

There were some excellent entries to the LeadershipZone caption compeition, but our special guest judge Tony Buzan has now chosen the winners.

Runner-up was Garry Damant for his suggestion:

And this is how I plan to ask Obama if we can be friends...

But the winner, as chosen by Tony Buzan, was Garry Platt, who suggested the caption:

Think of the British economy as ten fingers, I have put the first 5 into revitalising the banks, with the second 5 I am helping the motor industry back on its feet. And with the third 5 I am going to reinvest in local economies.

Garry and Garry each win a place on one of Tony’s latest series of courses, taking place in London during w/c 2nd March – for more information visit

Tony BuzanTony Buzan has worked with global businesses, governments, Olympic athletes, academics and high profile individuals to help them train their brains, improve their memories and unleash their mental capacities. The author of almost 100 books in over 30 languages and the creator of the World Memory Championships, he lectures on the techniques of Mind Mapping and thinking - all over the world.

In his brand-new seminar,'Leadership in Times of Crisis', to be held at the Savoy Place Conference Centre in London on 6th March, Tony will work with delegates to develop and enhance their own leadership skills, thus enabling them (and their organisations) to be among those who can make fortunes in the current tough times. Explore, understand and utilise the multiple intelligences – verbal, mathematical, creative, sensory, social, personal, physical, spatial, ethical and spiritual – and then apply them to your life and business strategy with Mind Maps®.

"This year is going to see a paradigm shift in the way the world thinks about business," says Tony. "The shift will be from the old industrial models to the realisation that it is intelligence - and by this I mean the multiple intelligences - that are going to be the focus and indeed the creators of future wealth. Among those intelligences, creative intelligence is likely to be the prime survival mechanism.

"Many great fortunes have been made - not (surprisingly) in times of boom; they have been made in times of bust. While the bulls and bears are stampeding in panic and fear across the financial plains, those who can think can overview the situation and see where opportunities are being exposed.

"In times of crisis, opportunity is there for everyone. It is only those who can lead, and who are thought-leaders, who will be able to grasp the many opportunities that crises offer."
