Break Boundaries and Surpass Goals Like a Jazz Musician
Jazz Insights is a performance-based exploration of the leadership principles of jazz. Duncan deconstructs the jazz group and in the process demonstrates how the team is able to problem solve and work creatively in real-time. The audience is invited to interact with the musicians and draw parallels between the world of jazz and organizational development.
Just a Few of Duncan’s Clients
Does your team perform like jazz musicians?
Our objectives are to break boundaries and find new ways of playing music. We embrace diversity and share leadership in a quest to find new directions in music. Mistakes are considered opportunities as jazz musicians realize that creative solutions are found in the most obscure places. Improvisation is rarely truly original, but more often a continuous evolution of ideas built from the musical conversations within the team.
Apply the Jazz Method
These principles are transferable skills and provide a real formula for teams to apply to their own creative challenges. Jazz Insights is an engaging and entertaining presentation with live performances from Duncan’s group.
Jazz Insights can be used as a stand-alone program within a conference, event or meeting or can be combined with some of our other programs. It also serves as a great after-dinner talk with live music throughout the evening.

What to Expect for Your Event
Thanks again for an outstanding performance yesterday. It was just brilliant. You are really lucky being able to have a career in something that you clearly love doing – and it shows in the quality of the work that you do.
Stix was a revelation – everything that we hoped for happened … high energy, motivation, teambuilding, dynamism, no cultural boundary and fun – everyone enjoyed the STIX experience so much that it was voted the top session at the conference.
I have worked with Duncan on numerous occasions to support large scale leadership development events. He brings a unique energy to the way he engages with the audience to provide a leadership and team experience out of the ordinary. His natural passion for music comes across clearly as he translates this into his work.
The session was excellent and will be remembered for a long time. You brought the energy of our team to a different level. We all enjoyed it. Well done and thank you again!!
We engaged Duncan and his stix programme to help build conversations within our group. We were looking for a unique way to improve the team’s performance and build on communication. The result was a fully-engaging and insightful meeting that shifted our perceptions of what was achievable. Duncan challenged our ideas of leadership and teamwork, and we could not have predicted such positive results.
