Dominic Alldis, conductor, jazz musician & business speaker

Musical Leadership, Teamwork & Creativity

How does a conductor lead a symphony orchestra? How do orchestral players collaborate to produce exceptional performances? How do jazz musicians inspire one another in a spontaneous musical environment? How do songwriters and composers create new music? The world of music can provide many excellent metaphors for today's business environment and a new vocabulary for discussing corporate leadership, teamwork and innovation.

Dominic Alldis is an orchestral conductor, jazz musician 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 symphony orchestra or a jazz band.

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.
