Dominic Alldis, conductor, jazz musician & business speaker

Musical Leadership, Teamwork & Creativity

How does a conductor lead a symphony orchestra? How do jazz musicians improvise within a fast-moving environment? How do composers create new music? The world of music can provide many excellent metaphors for today's business environment, as well as a new vocabulary for discussing leadership, teamwork and innovation.

Dominic Alldis is a jazz musician, conductor and business speaker. He has been talking about music to corporate audiences for over 15 years. His speeches are illustrated with videos, with the option of a live performance by a jazz band or a symphony orchestra. He is represented by some of the world's leading speaker bureaus including London Speaker Bureau, Speakers Associates, Speakers Corner, Speaker Ideas and Premiere Speakers. He is an Honorary Associate of the Royal Academy of Music in London and a Steinway Artist.
