Yanna Rider


Yanna RiderDr Yanna Rider is an experienced trainer specialising in hypothesis development and
argument mapping.  She works primarily with Austhink Consulting's government and defence clients. 

If you really must know, she spent too many years getting too many degrees at The University of Melbourne, mostly in Philosophy, worrying over such things as the interactive nature of cognition. She got a few awards out of it, and the 'Dr' in front of her name, which is a Good Thing. That's where she met Tim van Gelder, who converted her to argument mapping and sold her
the idea of turning thinking from an occupational hazard into a profession.

She spent three years in the UK running argument mapping training workshops for teachers and organisations like the National Audit Office, but was lured back to Australia in 2005.
