The Power of Music — Using Music as a Metaphor for Leadership
On Wednesday 25th November 2015 Moving Performance presents Know the Score® – a day in London with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, exploring how their expertise and world-class levels of performance can help you to fine-tune your business – featuring Beethoven’s 5th Symphony.
“I recently attended Know the Score®, using music as a metaphor for leadership at the Royal Albert Hall with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. It was the most incredible experience I have had on a leadership learning day. The way Ben and team intertwines music and contextualises it with business is superb and leaves you with a wow factor. The boring sporting analogies are a thing of the past… As a result of my first experience I asked Ben to facilitate a leadership piece at the Callcredit Management Conference focused on Collaboration, Agility and Innovation. The result was stunning and attendees are still talking about the experience weeks later, I would suggest the output will live on in our organisation for a long time to come. If you are looking to develop your leaders or managers and want a truly world class unforgettable experience speak to Ben.”

“… Moving Performance, a management training outfit run with impressive charm and expertise by a keen amateur horn player and former banker Ben Hines. The programme involving the RPO is called Know the Score. Built on American models, it offers a daylong seminar in which the ways in which a conductor and a symphony orchestra produce top-class results are used as a metaphor for team work and leadership in business.
So in the Royal Albert Hall last week, about 30 ambitious managers from a wide variety of backgrounds (City management consultancies, hi-tech start-ups, fast food and charity sectors) assembled to learn how the diversity of an orchestra could be welded into a whole, how fine tuning made all the difference, how risk was essential to excellence and other such chicken-soup lessons of life.” Read full article.
