Victory at Etihad

Friday, October 04, 2013

If you are looking for a team building event in Melbourne, that will knock the socks off your employees then this story is for you.

Here at Drum Beats we provide upbeat, motivational, and hands-on experiential events that will lift the spirits of your team. This can be done during a conference, in or out of the office and for virtually any event or occasion.

The Client
One of our most recent team building activities involved a brand new team of employees from Telstra here in Melbourne. 
As a new team, Telstra wanted an event that would see this new team form some lasting impressions, bonds and experience hands-on motivation to build their trust in each other from the ground up. This team of employees were given a challenging task and the kick off event was designed to build  a team synergy that will help them achieve results beyond expectations.

The Challenge
Typically, inspiration and motivation cannot simply be instilled through a PowerPoint presentation on the products features and benefits or goal expectations of a team. They need to feel that they are empowered to ‘Go Beyond’ their manager’s expectation, together as a team. This is where Telstra felt it necessary to lean on the expertise and power of Drum Beats corporate team building programs. In order to work together as a team, it is often necessary to get in a groove. It can be related to being able to stay in rhythm during musical performances.  This is exactly where the Drum Beats team provides an experience that shows employees how, without any training or expertise, they can perform a full musical show on African or Arabian drums.

Victory on the Drums!
The Telstra event took place at Etihad Stadium where many a champion team has displayed their teamwork! After warming up their minds through developing high powered teams with a former AFL Coach, they walked into the stadium seating area to be surprised by our score of musicians and 130 drums to start off their musical adventure. The full team cooperation and powerful sounds of the drums bouncing through the arena made for a resounding success. The team was impressed they were able to perform in such synchronicity. Yet, do not take our word for it; here is the response from our client:


“Fantastic job, really well received by the team! 
Energising, fun and helped to bring the new team together.”
