Program outline

BeatsWork is the most exhilarating team building activity. Using the infectious rhythms of samba, BeatsWork transforms a group of individuals into a giant percussion band – with each person playing their part, in time and on cue. Originally designed by Catalyst Global 25 years ago, this team building activity is designed to inspire and exhilarate.

How it works

Starting in small groups with a professional percussionist, your team is taught the basics of samba beats and breaks. By using a variety of rhythm based warm up exercises, teams soon move onto real instruments, with each group learning the different instruments and rhythms. As confidence and ability grows the groups are brought together in preparation for a stunning and pulsating finale of epic proportions.

With BeatsWork, everyone is involved. Even the most reserved characters are soon beaming from ear to ear as they stamp, beat, shake and drum in rhythm with their colleagues. This team building exercise if the perfect example of teamwork at its best. BeatsWork demonstrates that when individuals work in rhythm together as a team they become an unstoppable force.

Why Corporate Drumming with Catalyst Global Team Building?

As the originators of this powerful teambuilding experience we believe we are the best and most experienced providers of drum based teambuilding. We were the first to introduce ‘corporate Samba’ to the UK and now more than a quarter of a million people have drummed with Catalyst Global and its partners across the globe – that’s over 250,000 spines that have been tingled and 250,000 hearts that have beaten as one.

If creating a sense of unity and shared achievement is important to you, unleash your team on BeatsWork – it will collectively bring out the best in them.

Learning and development outcomes

There are many parallels to company structures in the multiple layers of vertical and horizontal integration required to create the incredible BeatsWork finale. This impactful program demonstrates the importance of standard operating procedures in consistently achieving excellence. When each participant and team fulfils their role and works in synergy, the whole group succeeds. This creates a result greater than the sum of individual effort and a memorable example of the power of focussed common purpose.
