Tom Morley

Tom Morley made his name as the original drummer and a founder member of Scritti Politti, the 70s / 80s band who were pioneers of DIY music before appearing on the dance scene. Unlike other bands Scritti used to make half their songs up on stage.

Drawing on his years of experience in the music business, Tom creates INSTANT teams, delivering INSTANT team work. Within just 10 minutes Tom has a room working as one team in perfect harmony using drums. He generates the most extraordinary energy and good will, and has teams performing where there are no silos, no barriers and no hierarchical limitations. Delegates are given permission to take risks and become more creative, breaking through their self-limiting beliefs en-masse while changing their individual mindsets.

Equally at home challenging a global board of directors as he is when inspiring a local charity group, Tom has an experienced and humorous approach, which puts people at ease immediately.

Tom offers a fully immersive keynote (with percussion for audiences) as well as a shorter and still very interactive ‘ice-breaker session.

His down-to-earth belief that people can achieve great things when they overcome their natural fears, has empowered thousands of individuals to work together effectively.

Tom’s style, developed working with teams as small as five to groups of five thousand during the last decade, ignites people’s curiosity. His own enjoyment of the creative process is an irresistible invitation for us to leave our comfort zones for a while and join him on his journey. And, of course, we expand our horizons on the way.

Whether he is working with a group of 10 or 200, the end result is always the same. One high performing team achieving an amazing sound, and creating a lasting legacy of what it feels like to be part of a truly performing team.

Tom Morley then explores with the group how they can take these feelings and achievements back into their place of work, thus making tangible that all important sustainable difference. He is truly original and inspiring around the topic of team building and his approach is refreshingly different and memorable! Tom’s background of life on many stages enables him to read a room and see exactly what the audience needs. He then delivers it with humour, style, and panache.

Having run hundreds of team building events around the world Tom feels comfortable with any crowd, even the most hardened sceptics! He’s also happy to share the stage and collaborate with whoever else is on the schedule. If there’s a way of deepening the conference message with a custom-written anthem that the whole group can drum or sing along to just mention it when you speak to us. Everything is possible!

What people say about Tom Morley

“Tom is one of those rare individuals who can not only generate his own ‘light bulb’ moments he is also a keen listener to the ideas of others. He has this almost supernatural ability to synthesise what they are saying and present them back to the group, there and then, in graphic form. I’ve never seen anyone work so skillfully with both flip chart and Photoshop and every Innovation Event we run is greatly enhanced by having Tom in the faculty. He generates a lot of laughter too which keeps the creative juices of the whole team flowing.”

“I’m convinced that what our team experienced thanks to Tom’s unique ability to engage every crowd on our Roadshow has been instrumental in our improved performance at HERTZ. He created magical experiences with incredible energy, the team went way beyond their normal boundaries to genuinely care for each other, feeling strong, united, inspired and unbeatable.”

“When you bring large numbers of people together, their first instinct is often to determine and demonstrate where they sit in the hierarchy. Tom’s ability to completely negate that hierarchy, in favour of unearthing the much more important red thread that binds a team together around an idea or an opportunity, is exceptional. He manages to tune in to and capture a resonance that everyone embraces, leaving people feeling not only personally inspired and motivated, but having formed what are likely to be long-term relationships with others with whom they may never before have passed the time of day.”
