This month Unbeatable Energy travelled down to Guildford in Surrey to work with a team from Allianz Insurance. The team had a one hour drum circle session to get an injection of group energy into their conference. The team were welcomed by a fantastic variety of African djembe drums, African bass drums, shekeres, bells and frame drums. Stephen Flynn , Marketing Manager from Allianz, said "The workshop was incredibly uplifting. It brought so many smiles to the group. It was the perfect tonic for a long day in a meeting room."
''Right from the start Allianz looked like they were all up for enjoying themselves'' says Steve Rivers from Unbeatable Energy. ''They didn't waste any time in getting started and very soon the room was buzzing with the funky sound of African rhythms. By the end of the session the group were creating a fantastic rhythm dialogue between each other - the bass drums were talking to the hand drums, which were interacting and responding to the bells and wood blocks. The result was a wonderful improvised team sound - a sense of variety and freedom but with a common beat holding everything together. It was a pleasure working with Allianz and what they achieved in the session reflected a team with a go great sense of team spirit.''
