Consortium Consultancy is a global business consultancy powerhouse. We began our operations a few decades ago and have grown due to excellent relationships with our clients. We started out small, with just a few people and a small office, but today we have offices in multiple countries with many people working inside them.

We achieved our success because of how successfully we integrate with our clients. One complaint many people have about consultants is that they can be disruptive. Employees fear outside consultants coming in and destroying the workflow. Our clients face no such issues.

The Think Hub Center is the first private center in UAE offering Neurofeedback and Biofeedback training to reduce or eliminate everyday symptoms of stress, as well as brain based and functional disorders.

They are committed to non-pharmaceutical interventions that offer a high degree of safety and efficacy, as documented in the mainstream Medical and Psychological literature.

Neurofeedback can be used as stand-alone interventions for stress management, or as part of an integrative treatment plan together with the appropriate clinical specialist.

Institute of Brain Chemistry and Human Nutrition (IBCHN)


exists to understand the brain, and discover the causes of developmental disorders for prevention of them, which sentence a child to a lifetime of physical and mental limitations.



WIQF is the official IQ ranking of the high IQ community.
It is an international list  founded on April 2014 by Marco Ripà and Dr. Manahel Thabet with the purpose of evaluating high IQ people basing a unitary criterion, awarding official IQ titles to members who prove a superior IQ on several accepted tests.

Members are classified into six WIQF categories and they can achieve five Lifetime WIQF Titles plus annual awards for each category.







magazine was founded a quarter of a century ago by Tony Buzan as the official publication of the international Brain Clubs which later metamorphosed into the Brain Trust charity. Many noted intellectuals contributed including Garry Kasparov the world chess champion, Howard Gardner of multiple intelligence fame and Director of the Institute for Brain Chemistry and Human Nutrition, Professor Michael Crawford.

Synapsia rose to become the main news conduit for the Brain of the Year awards, the World Memory Championships and research into the nature of Genius and the Ageing Brain. Fifteen years ago the print version ceased publication but now it has been revived online by Brain Trust Royal Patron, Prince Marek Kasperski. With the active participation of Dr Manahel Thabet, Brain Trust President for the Middle East and North Africa, and the renewed commitment of Professor Tony Buzan himself, inventor of Mind Maps, Synapsia online is now inviting fresh contributions connected with learning, education and Brainpower, to enhance and expand our existing work, work which in many cases turned out to be predictive, cutting edge and, indeed, prophetic!

Largest memory lesson


What1: 307 PEOPLE

The Mind Sport of Memory

is both a fun, valuable hobby, as well as an amateur sport. At the fun end of memory, informal competitions take place in Brain Clubs and in other Mind Sport groups taking many different forms.

At a competitive level, there are specific disciplines which were created in 1991 by the founders of the sport, Tony Buzan and Raymond Keene OBE, and which lay down a common competition framework that has enabled international competition to take place. It is based on the ten memory disciplines.

Competitions that comply with the WMSC rules standards can be included in the World Rankings.

At a World level, some disciplines like cards and number can have a one hour memorisation period and a two hour recall time. At a national level, memorisation times can be reduced to five minutes, with a ten or fifteen minute recall time to suit the level of competitors taking part.

Another factor in the choice of disciplines is the preparation of competition materials. Some disciplines, like Names and Faces, Binary Numbers etc take some time to produce the memorisation and recall papers. These types of discipline require experienced Arbiters and time for marking.

Although it is not essential when organising fun memory events and competitions, it is recommended that by joining the International Guild of Mind Sports Arbiters, and taking at least the Level One training, an organiser would gain invaluable experience in running their own club or event

The Mind Sport of Memory was founded in 1991 by the inventor of Mind Maps and expert on Mental Literacy, Tony Buzan and Chess Grand Master, Raymond Keene OBE. The Ten Discplines which formed the basis of the first competition are largely unchanged today and have been adopted worldwide as the basis for competitive memory competitions. There are now competitors from 30 countries participating in the sport, all competing to become the next World Memory Champion.

The sport is administered by the World Memory Sports Council which is the governing body for the sport. It compiles the World Rankings, is the custodian of the ten diciplines and ensures fair play worldwide through its Ethics Committee chaired by eight times World Memory Champion, Dominic O’Brien.

Memory is a sport in which everyone can take part. None of the top competitors would claim to be born with a great memory. All of them have learnt all the necessary techniques to develop their skills, and have practiced to a high level to get them to the top of the sport. You can do the same!  Why not start today?

Memory is one of the five “Learning Mind Sports” which are Speed Reading, IQ, Creativity, Mind Mapping and Memory. All of them are competitive sports, and collectively they can help anyone to become better in their studies or in ther work.

The Royal Society of Medicine

is one of the country’s major providers of postgraduate medical education. Independent and apolitical, the Society promotes an exchange of information and ideas on the science, practice and organisation of medicine.
