Team Development

We create Team Development programs that help you build more creative, adaptable teams. We help facilitate conversations that get global teams discussing ways to work more effectively and creatively together in a highly engaging, transforming and entertaining way – through music.

As specialists in group process, creativity and engagement, we combine these forces to create a platform for participants to explore and build change collaboratively.

Customised Team Development Programs

Our programs are based on extensive research, design and development and have been tested and used with leading organisations and business schools in Asia and Europe over the last decade. We work closely with you to gain an understanding of your team profile, organisational culture, intervention goals and we work together to create a learning design to address your specific team requirements. Learning can be extended and messages reinforced with pre-learning event interviews, surveys, and post-program coaching.

For groups of 20 to 300, programs range from half-day to three days. Can be used as a stand-alone learning event, as part of a larger change initiative or culture change program. We also have experience adapting the learning design to complement offsites, meetings, conferences, leadership and executive development programs. Our teambuilding and leadership activities are also available for conferences and other meetings. Contact us to arrange a consultation or complete the form below.

About Duncan McKee

I'm a jazz pianist, television composer & educator. I share the stage with some of the worlds best musicians.

I compose soundtracks for television networks such as HBO and The Discovery Channel and I also write for my own trio The Duncan McKee Trio and multi-cultural group Tembusu.

I'm fascinated by music and its collaborative effect on people. When I'm not on stage playing music I'm very often on stage talking about it.

    "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."
