5 Reasons To Add a Stix Symphony to Your Event Program
1) It's Easy for You
Seamless, Simple Logistics
Duncan is known for a slick and simple set up. The highly customizable and structured design of a Stix Symphony means we take the headache out of set-up and slot seamlessly into event programs. He can best advise where to place our activities for maximum impact and minimum interruption to other event content.
By the way, Duncan recycles all materials and uses earth-friendly bamboo crafted musical instruments in all presentations – the first of its kind for corporate events and training. Great for CSR Programs.
2) Get 'em Involved
Spark Conversations & Get Participants Networking
Since the audience co-creates the performance, networking and conversations are started. This is not a follow-the-leader activity. It’s an interactive exercise which makes this activity engaging and memorable. People network, share ideas and make new connections, during and after the event. Social media will be buzzing post-event.
Encourage Participation & Collaboration Organically
The group process is set up to gently guide participation to ensure no one feels out of their comfort zone. No musical experience is necessary and it’s perfect for cross-cultural teams. Language barriers are not a challenge.
Duncan’s Message is Customized for Your Event Theme
Duncan personally designs his programs and customizes key messages to suit most event formats and timing. No two events are ever the same. Stix lessons are carefully crafted to meet the objectives for each client. From 30 minute conference openers to half day team building programs.

5) They'll Love It
Guarantee Participants a “Wow” Performance
Since our activity is based on researched and proven problem solving games and group processes, participants are guaranteed a highly energizing musical experience unlike any other.
The polyphonic (multiple notes played at once) nature of the activity means that everyone performs different parts of music at the same time producing a beautiful harmony and sound that culminates in a powerful, energizing crescendo. A great culmination to the conference activity.
They Said it Couldn’t Be Done
The goal? Your team performs a musical masterpiece in 30 minutes, each using nothing, but a bamboo stick and mallet. The challenge requires no musical experience and is relevant to any organization.

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.
