Neal Fullerton is a highly engaging and passionate speaker who uses music to energise conferences and bring delegates together in a unique way. Having appeared at hundreds of conferences in Scandinavia, his interactive musical sessions are also a powerful metaphor for teamwork. Using very simple instruments - (tuned plastic tubes called “Boomwhackers”) which are handed out to every person in the room - Neal can get 500 conference delegates all working together and playing Beethoven's 9th symphony! His performance will transform any audience into participants.
Neal combines experience from a number of diverse areas reflecting his journey from the Royal College of Music to music therapy, together with real-world experience as a professional musician and entertainer in cabaret bands, piano bars and on cruise ships. He brings along business experience too, having run successful sales teams with several international blue-chip companies in the UK such as Pilkington and Bausch & Lomb.
He also has created and run courses in business presentation skills for major Scandinavian players in the oil industry including ConocoPhillips and Statoil. It's this combination of music, communication, business and entertainment that makes for a very engaging speaker. The common thread with all of this is communication and teamwork. (Neal says: “Think of any good band - The Rolling Stones, Duke Ellington or the Royal Philharmonic - they're all really good “teams” that communicate effectively to produce harmony.”)
Audiences are carried away by Neal's passion for music, together with his energy and entertaining stage presence. His sense of humour is infectious and audiences really enjoy his insights into how music “works” - and his obvious pleasure at sharing his knowledge. In a very entertaining style, he demonstrates how the skills needed to play music together are also transferrable to working together.
Conference delegates are energised, engaged and they have a lot of fun too.
