World’s Leading Professional Services Firm

The world’s leading professional services firm asked Moving Performance to create an inspiring module with a wow factor, to act as a capstone activity to a week-long leadership programme. They wanted their people to learn how to inspire a team of experts, lead through ambiguity, create compelling storylines, all while excelling at client service and impact – something they need to do with their clients every day.

Our Compose to Lead programme hit the mark. We designed a powerful client “Study”, bringing to life how they can work more effectively with their clients, consolidating the learning of the previous week together in such a way that was fun, disarming and made participants shine. Delivering multi year, over 35 times per annum, across the globe in Asia, Europe and the US, with our local facilitators and musicians from Japan, Shanghai, Singapore, Hong Kong, New York and London, we consistently rate the highest part of the programme.

“This has been the best learning experience I have had.”

MS Amlin

MS Amlin, the insurance business, asked Moving Performance to design a three-day leadership programme for their Talent across UK, Europe, Asia and the Americas. The objective was to teach these leaders the nuances of team performance and leadership, all whilst working within a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) market.

We used our Compose to Lead module to bring together the learning from the previous days on the final day. Participants put into practice areas such as envisioning their team, and assured communication, all whilst working in the ambiguous context of the exercise, bringing to life the sort of challenge they face daily in the work place. Participants remarked months and even years later that they still remember the feedback they were given in that exercise and how it serves them in their leadership today.

“AMAZING beyond words. It was wonderful to have a client that’s completely different from what we are used to.”

DP World, Dubai

DP World, the biggest port operator globally, brought together their top 200 globally for a conference in Dubai. Their challenge was to inspire a multi-cultural group to collaborate more effectively in implementing their strategy. They asked Moving Performance to deliver a keynote address and workshop at their annual conference.

We brought five of the best brass players from London, and facilitated a powerful 2 hour workshop exploring the themes of high performing teams, collaboration, vision, humility and many more. The delegates were left with a deeply impactful and thought provoking experience, and loved the opportunity to hear professional musicians perform in the midst of their business convention.

“Your session at our leadership conference was one of the best things I’ve done so far in my career. The brilliance of the musicians combined with your insights on leadership and team work through music is truly inspirational.”

Jaguar Land Rover

The international sales team of JLR are used to working virtually. However structural changes, with a newly merged division required the team to get together and reflect on how they wanted to operate moving forward. They also wanted to reward the team with something uniquely special.

We seated them inside the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London and guided them through an immersive, engaging learning experience where they observed first-hand a world class team. We spent the rest of the day unpacking the observations and applying them in practical steps they can take as a team to make the transformational change they need.

"Phenomenal and deeply impactful."

CISCO, San Jose, US

CISCO, brought together their global IT leadership of 550 people for their big annual convention. The theme was disruption. If they don’t adopt an approach to disrupt the market, they will be disrupted.

They wanted something spectacular, different and inspiring. They also had a whole range of heavy hitting speakers: Tesla, Coca-Cola, Cisco and well-known social media companies, to name a few. We were asked to give the closing Keynote.

We spoke about the importance of leadership, team performance and mindsets as the key components to effectively and rapidly disrupt in and respond to a changing world. We then modeled it.

Suddenly, in the middle of the keynote, 25 participants stood up, one-by-one, and started to sing. This flashmob, singing a song all about disruption, disrupted everything, and within minutes all 550 people were on their feet singing their song. A professional band came onto stage and the place was rocking.

Moving Performance empowered and led this magic to happen. The impact was stunning and is still talked about years later.

"AMAZING!  Their ability to quickly understand, simplify and orchestrate a 500 person team toward a common cultural mission was beyond my expectations!"

Telekom Austria, Rovinj, Croatia

The largest mobile phone operator in Austria and leading provider in many Easter European countries brought together their top 200 leaders for their annual conference. Lead by the CEO, there were key business updates, visions for the future, and side meetings throughout the three days.

Moving Performance was asked to bring to life a new HR framework of leadership in such a way that would be inclusive, engaging and provide a wow-factor that they had never experienced before. Their previous speaker the year before had been the best ever, and we had been given a tall order. We also had been selected over some world-famous speakers.

Ahead of the programme, we coached and developed a select group of leaders who would inspire and lead key breakouts. On the day, we brought their leadership framework alive using the metaphor of music. There was stunned silence in the room and the engagement was deep. They even put their phones down!

We set them a challenge, to write in groups songs about the key steps they would take - what they would put down and what they would pick up in this upcoming journey. The performances were profound - every individual in the room stepping up, moving outside their comfort zone, and modelling the precise behaviours the leadership was asking them to do.

It was their best ever conference.

“Through music Ben reminded us of the importance of tuning in teams and getting out of our comfort zones to be better leaders thus achieving better results. More importantly, he inspired more than 200 colleagues in leadership positions to genuinely ask themselves what kind of leaders they are and what changes they can make immediately upon returning to their teams. Moving Performance was a truly quality experience which I can strongly recommend for everybody who is looking for a highly entertaining and motivational event.”
