A MOTIVATING WORKSHOP LED BY ME
How do you motivate people to work better together?
There are many answers, but I believe it is about inspiring people to become aware of every part of themselves.
I have been using this approach in my Sewa Beats workshops for many years. So I know that it works.
People end the workshop with presence. Feeling able to act with authenticity. To collaborate better. To empathise with colleagues.
EMBRACING TOUGH CHALLENGES
The power of music helps people in organisations embrace the tough challenges facing businesses and organisations.
Challenges like managing people across cultures. Fostering collaboration. Deepening trust. Caring for employees who are overloaded. Creating a brand that customers can love.
When I lead a workshop, I draw on over 20 years of self-development and entrepreneurship. My learnings come from a deep well of experience. Creating my own successful brands. Working with talented artists in Europe and Africa. Organising humanitarian and cultural exchange trips. Running leadership retreats. Travelling. Listening. Connecting. Inspiring. Performing.
The ‘Beats’ refers to the rhythm of African music – a metaphor for working in harmony and being in tune with ourselves.
‘Sewa’ in the Malinke language of West Africa means ‘joy’. And as we travelled delivering workshops around the globe we discovered some other definitions for the word Sewa too. In Hindi it means ‘to be in service’, in Arabic it means ‘unity or together’, and in Japanese it means ‘to care’.
All companies aspire to these values.
PREPARE TO BE SURPRISED
I’ll use the rhythm of the djembe, the drum of the Malinke people. African djembefolas and harpists often accompany me.
I’ll teach the group how to use their voices, breathing and bodies in a tailor-made programme to help them meet their challenges.
I’ve led Sewa Beats workshops for Fortune 500 companies, leading business schools, NGOs and other global organisations, including IMD, Rotterdam School of Management, HEC Paris, INSEAD and the Global Leadership Fellows Program of the World Economic Forum.
OTHER WAYS TO WORK WITH ME
Transformation For Leaders
Are you a CEO or manager? Then you know you have to continually develop to be the best leader you can be.I would like to welcome you to experience a life-changing moment. Join me at the Egande retreat (Egande means peace) in the village of Abéné in Senegal, West Africa.
Lighting Up Lives
Abéné is the last undeveloped village on the coast of Senegal.
Only 20% of the village has electricity. How can 700 kids learn in a darkened schoolroom?
My dream is to create a stable electricity supply with solar panels and the power of the African sun.
SPEAKING & MORE
Inspiring Heart in Your Workplace
How do you want people to feel when they leave your event?
How about that they’ve freed up their own energy? Found their rhythm, harmony and connection with all in the room.
I’m a speaker who uses more than words. I use breath, space, body and music. And sometimes the odd surprise.
DO YOU SPEAK DJEMBE?
A Happy Marriage of Cultures
Bringing two cultures – or two businesses – together is never easy. But when we embrace differences positively and combine our expertise, we create amazing collaboration.
A Do You Speak Djembe? conference for your organisation can create harmony.
