TopicThe Music Metaphor - Leadership, Collaboration and Creativity; Bringing an Artistic Perspective to Business

By blending the aesthetic and emotional richness of music and the arts with the strategic and operational approach of business, participants can refocus their approach to leadership, collaboration, listening, decision-making, talent-management and the pursuit of excellence.
