What We Do
Your company has organised another conference. It’s a drab day ahead and you anticipate drinking lots of coffee to stay alert through a series of monotone speakers. As you arrive dynamic sounds of drumming fill the air and instantly lift your mood. African drummers in colourful costumes are beating vibrant rhythms at your conference venue!
There’s a drum on every chair. In order to sit down, you need to pick up a drum. Curiosity takes over. You start playing a few beats, in time with the simple pulse that surrounds you. Your colleagues are also joining in, everyone is smiling. Even though you’ve never touched a drum, it’s second nature. This is the beginning of a fun-filled drumming adventure. Within minutes, your team is transformed into a percussion orchestra, finding a common beat.
You leave feeling uplifted, exhilarated and more connected to your team than ever before.
This program is an extension of our Interactive Drumming activity. Your team is already empowered from their drumming experience, now they are ready to work more closely with their associates in smaller groups – creating their own rhythms.
Even without instruments, we can make music. If you have just a few minutes available, we can get toes tapping, hands clapping and build teams through the original musical instrument – the human body. It’s simple & effective. Our African drummers are experts in rhythm, they know how to break it down, and build it up!
Group size unlimited!
African Beat’s activities for team building are ideal for any team event, including:
- Icebreakers / Energisers
- Awards Nights
- Road Shows
- Product Launches
- Stress & Change Management
- Christmas Parties
- Special Events
“When we were looking for different team building exercises for our recent conference, I came across African Beat on the internet. I was looking for something that was unusual, that would take people out of their comfort zone, where people from totally different levels were equal in standing, and most importantly would be great fun. My expectations were exceeded by the troop from African Beat. It took very little time to get everyone in the groove and working together as a team and people who thought they had no musical bones in their body were getting right in to it. The African Beat team quickly built up great energy in the room and their drumming was extraordinary. The session finished with a team building exercise that was fantastic fun and had people stepping out of their comfort zone with little hesitation. If you’re looking for something unusual that people will remember forever and helps build teams, then African Beat is for you!“
