At Moving Performance we work with a range of clients across the world. Here's what a selection say

"Ben and his team are AMAZING! Their ability to quickly understand, simplify and orchestrate a 500 person team toward a common cultural mission was beyond my expectations! In 90 minutes, they took us out of our comfort zone and the outcome was a mindset of a FASTER, SIMPLER and TOGETHER Cisco IT - with a recording that I can't get out of my head. :) Thank you Ben and Team!!"

Guillermo Diaz, Chief Information Officer

"Ben created a powerful atmosphere. Through music he reminded us of the importance of tuning our teams and getting out of our comfort zones to be better leaders. More importantly, he inspired more than 200 colleagues in leadership positions to genuinely ask themselves what kind of leaders they are and what changes they can make to their teams. Moving Performance provided a truly quality experience which I can strongly recommend for everybody who is looking for a highly entertaining and motivational event."

Dubravka Jusic, Head of Group Internal Communications International

"Moving Performance, with their originality, their engaging style and their beautiful, moving music helped us to lay the organisation's business past to rest and focus on a better future for all our colleagues at Northern Rock. The feedback from the 200 delegates was tremendous. You should use Moving Performance at your next conference, team away day or as part of your organisational and people development agenda."

Malcolm Hewitt, Director of Customer Service and Sales

"The concept of connecting world class musical performance to high performing business is as thought provoking as it is obvious. Presenting this concept to our top 70 leaders at Grange Insurance was masterfully accomplished by Ben with a level of facilitation that truly resonated with our leadership team. As successful as the end product was, the real joy was partnering in the design process with Moving Performance and being able to bring in our local Columbus Symphony Orchestra. Moving Performance were resourceful and exceptionally easy to work with."

Gary Irvine, AVP Talent Management

"Ben has an amazing ability to bond teams around a cause through music. It really needs to be experienced to be believed and understood. It is beautiful, uplifting and long-lasting. Ben has a very special gift that he is generous enough to share."

René Carayol MBE, Broadcaster and Author, CEO

"I have had the pleasure of sharing Know the Score® with clients as part of leadership programmes designed to cultivate leadership strengths, passion, self-awareness and better understanding of team dynamics. The session is wonderful. It helps open everyone's hearts as well as providing rich and powerful metaphors for atunement, listening, team performance, risk taking and unleashing excellence. Ben is masterful at facilitating participant reflection and drawing the leadership lessons from his interviews with the conductor and the performers. People leave Know the Score® uplifted, engaged and focused on their own leadership journey."

Amy Elizabeth Fox, Chief Executive Officer

"At the beginning of our two-day workshop with Moving Performance, I was somewhat sceptical about the power of music to influence behaviour in a group of analytical accountants. By the end of the workshop, I was a convert – I experienced how Ben used music to encourage us to explore what motivates us as individuals, how to work more effectively as a team, and how to communicate better with others. The final session of the workshop provided a "wow" factor the like of which I have never experienced before on any training course – I was impressed. But more impressive for me is that two months after the workshop, we are still talking about the time we spent together and using the tools Ben and Giles introduced us to. Time is money for accountants, and that workshop was two days well spent."

Roy Welsby, Partner and Executive Director

"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."

Adrian Mitri, Chief Operating Officer

"Ben and his team rocked our staff conference and helped us achieve the highest ratings ever for staff satisfaction with the day. Staff acheived remarkable results and discovered creativity they did not know they had. I would strongly recommend Ben and his team for any staff conference or team building activity."

Geeta Nanda OBE, Chief Executive Officer

"Compose a piece of music? But we work in IT! We ‘faced the music’ with Moving Performance to discover new team dynamics that previously had evaded us in the 9 to 5 workplace. Team building has never been so engaging drawing out raw passion and emotion amongst the group that would otherwise have lay dormant. A unique experience! Encore!"

Jamie Allsop, Head of Account Delivery

"Having produced conferences for over twenty years I was struck by how Moving Performance offers something refreshingly new to clients. They weld the interactive, creative elements of their presentation with the business messages extremely well. Ben has a likeable style and his preparation is meticulous; he carefully researches the business objectives of the client and tailors a solution around this. His own commercial leadership experience gains credibility and empathy with the audience allowing him to obtain speedy buy-in which makes the whole team ethic he promotes more relevant and powerful."

Duncan Highet, Managing Director

"You sometimes meet people who have passion coming out of every pore, but not often. To meet someone like this, who's passion is to help others, is unique in my experience. It is for this reason that I have no hesitation in recommending Ben to anyone who wants help in building their team. A talented musician, a far-sighted faciltator with a clear vision of how to help other people makes him someone you should speak to."
