When  Grundfos Australia and New Zealand launched a new Grundfos  global corporate theme in 2011, they announced it  with a drum roll in every one of their offices – coordinating eight opening events  in six offices and two countries through Drum Beats

It all began in Denmark earlier this year, when Grundfos called an international manager’s meeting to announce their new global corporate theme, “What Unites Us”, and opened the event with a drumming session - the perfect way to unite any corporate group with a rhythmic shared experience.

Anna Tyssen, Assistant Marketing Manager of Grundfos Australia, suggested recreating the Danish drumming experience to announce the theme to a group of 30 Australian senior executives and business leaders. “We wanted something that was physical and involving and united everyone in the audience in a positive way”, recalls Anna, “and drumming met that need perfectly“. In fact, this event was so successful, it was then staged in every Grundfos office in Australia and New Zealand on June 20th, when the new values rolled out globally.

Grundfos National HR Manager Claire Lindley took responsibility for managing the national launch and worked closely with Drum Beats Production Director Rob Wines to make sure the event was simultaneous and seamless, quite a challenge as the audience sizes ranged from 120 people in Adelaide to six people in Perth, with 20 – 50 per office in the other capital cities – Auckland, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. “Being a national company”, says Claire, “the fact that we were able to organise the whole event through one central contact, Rob Wines, was invaluable. I attended the Adelaide shows, which were fantastic, and I had equally positive feedback from all the other state Managers”.  

Drum Beats say that no event is too complex and no audience too small for a great drumming event whether you have an audience of six or 600. “It always happens the same way” explains Rob, “five minutes while the extroverts get into it and the introverts hold back, and then all inhibitions go out of the window as everyone joins in and enjoys the adrenalin rush.  National launches are no problem either as Drum Beats has hand-picked teams of drummers and dancers on call in every capital city – each performer auditioned and approved and each performance scripted by Angela.” 

Australia Wide African Countdown

Sunday, February 13, 2011

What a day!

With shows commencing at 1pm in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Adelaide, Perth & Brisbane the launch of Nutrimetics new incentive travel destination was a case of all hands on drums! (Nutrimetics is one of Australia and New Zealand’s leading skincare companies)

Following the countdown the drummers commenced & the African dancers burst onto the stage delighting the audiences with their energy & athleticism. As lunch concluded the interactive fun began, each participant had a drum or percussion instrument to play and the Nutrimetics Orchestras were born!

With the new incentive travel destination being South Africa, this was a great chance to bring out our ever popular African theme. Logistically the challenge was to coordinate the 21 musicians but as usual the guys were fantastic & drew a great response.

And here is what Nutrimetics had to say

"WOW what a successful event we had all thanks to the drum beats entertainment. All states came back with positive feed back on the entertainment and could not say 1 bad thing about any of the states.

I was in South Australia and they were fabulous!!! Jim was my contact and he was great, nothing was too hard for him. The level of professionalism and manner we were working with across Australia is something we here at Nutrimetics are looking for.

Angela, thank you for all your help coordinating the states. Your musicians were all easy going and ready to perform at the best of their ability with no complaints or drama. It's a relief to know that for the next events we do with drum beats we will be happy.

I look forward to meeting you both and also working with you and your team in the future."
