A Keynote Concert is the perfect way to liven up your corporate conference with a unique interactive experience the exemplifies team work from the perspective of musical collaboration and performance. Our "Intricacies of Teamwork and Leadership" takes you through a Musical Collaboration that is one of the most synergistic experiences teams can participate in. This popular Keynote demonstrates the concept of team-work and collaboration through the dissection of the speaker’s own musical works. The presentation includes audience involvement through noisemakers and a drum circle. In environments where everyone marches to their own beat, like creative teams, we need effective communication.
Participants establish the importance of team work through an exploration of sound and light. Recognizing the role of leadership as the conductor of a corporate symphony and each employee as key members of the orchestra.

The workshops that we offer are excellent for education in High School and College. Team work, Self Empowerment and Social Justice are three of the fundamental issues that face youth in America today.
Our workshops ask students to explore the boundaries between right and wrong as it relates to inequities in our current system. When is it ok to speak up against authority? How can your voice be heard if standing toe to toe is too intimidating? What is the role of the crowd when injustice is happening?
By bringing socially charged issues to the forefront of students consciousness we can teach students how to talk about injustices they see around them and become instruments for changing the status quo.
Topics: Poetry, InJustice, Self Empowerment, Social Justice, Assembly, Speaker, Women's Empowerment
