Using MindManager to Plan the Annual Non-Profit Yosemite Writers Conference

Filed Under Mindjet


August 23, 2007

It’s about time that the renowned authors, writing group leaders, East Coast literary agents, volunteer faculty, blog mentions, recorded panel presentations, printed press and web links, and each photo picturing the exquisite beauty of Yosemite— all the elements that make up the Yosemite Writers Conference — be gathered together into a MindManager® conference planning dashboard.  Starting tomorrow, a select group of authors, editors, literary agents and publishers from across the state, from the other side of the country, and perhaps a few from overseas, will spend a weekend together devoted to writing, surrounded by the beauty of Yosemite at Tenaya Lodge.

    MindManager is a great tool for planning and reporting events. I hope you had a great weekend.

    I have just had a sunny weekend in a local village at the Beer, Balloon and Cricket Festival. I use MindManager to create a web site and plan for my commentary on the Cheriton Sixes cricket competition which takes place on Bank Holiday Monday. 8 teams competing from 0900 to 1930 playing 15 games of 5 overs each! It’s a marathon.

    My master maps links to maps with the Rules, Teams, Tunes and Sounds. I can click quickly between these doing things like playing a Team Anthem by clicking a team name or Elvis’s “Hound Dog” by clicking on that or Steelers Wheel’s “Stuck in the Middle With You”.

    During the day I take notes on the Team map about players hitting big sixes or taking athletic catches, so that prizes can be awarded at the end of the day.

    This plus photographs and a report is added to the web site published shortly after the event. You can see last years event here

    and this years content is being added to

    This is my busman’s holiday from one of my day jobs at Cabre, called “After the Event” which records and publishes business and organisation events. I am bidding for a two day event with 300 people at the moment. I might need a crew of ten to do that including video, audio, photography and mapping of sessions.
