Strategic decision making

Event overview

“Truly zany, moving and unimaginably powerful!” 
Director, Mercedes-Benz Retail Group. 

Business consultant and professional musical director, Stephen Bell, will draw on his careers as a senior leader in the car industry and his alternative career as a professional conductor, to have you mesmerised, entertained and moved in this truly unique masterclass. 

Exploring the compositional processes of great musicians, Stephen will show you the direct link between the musical and commercial worlds, and how the creation and performance of a symphony orchestra is similar to strategy, design and delivery in business! 

He will ensure that you leave with a smile on your face and be truly inspired to deliver on your own strategy and vision – using a thinking that you will never even have considered before! 

Key learnings

  • How to test your strategy for unity, removing disharmony
  • How to hear and trust the true impulses in your strategy design
  • Listen to your decisions and understand what you are hearing
  • Harness the phenomenal power of music and creativity to transform your thinking
