Why Do Companies Choose Drum Cafe West?
It seems simple — you call a team building organization to help you strengthen your team. Yet day in and day out, we hear so many unique reasons that people call us here at Drum Cafe West to come in and help their teams thrive. In just the past month alone, we’ve had our clients vocalize dramatically different uses for our events. Here are a few of the recent reasons people are choosing to use us for their corporate team building efforts.
“Provide personal empowerment to lead change in a bold and authentic way.”
The beauty of our drumming program is that it illuminates how the individual can affect the outcome of the team. It’s so important to show people that their contributions make a difference. Sometimes the newest team member is the one that comes up with the game changing idea, and they need to feel supported to deliver it.
“Bonding together new hires for the first time.”
Using our events to introduce new hires to one another and a company’s culture is something many organizations have successfully used in the past. Imagine walking into your first day at work and being greeted by the sounds of drumming. Then you learn you’ll actually be making music yourself! It’s not only an exciting way to introduce people to one another, but it’s also a great icebreaker that removes the outside world and bias from the introduction and focuses on the genuine emotional connection between team members.
“Create catalytic transformation to overcome resistance.”
It’s always amazing to see the moment that a team realizes the whole is better than the sum of its parts. Sometimes teams need some encouragement to get there. One of the most common reasons people call us is to inspire their teams to collaborate to help them innovate. Whether there are personal insecurities or trust issues, or team communication issues, we help individuals break down their walls to see the bigger picture and further their ability to work collaboratively.
“Experience team work without a talk or even knowing each other.”
For many people, experiencing the power of non-verbal communication is a game changer. Non-verbal communication can be even more powerful and telling about how an individual actually feels than the words that come out of their mouth. This is significant, and a point that we don’t take lightly.
Whatever the reason people come to us, we are ready to design a program custom tailored to their needs. Using drumming as the medium levels the playing field and allows people to communicate freely and openly, allowing all members of the team to access a set of skills normally not utilized. On top of that, drumming also allows everyone to let loose and have fun!

Braving through blizzards and cold is more than worth it when you get to work with such a dynamic group of people— this past week we jubilated and drummed with the Peoples Bank of Kankakee in snowy Illinois! It was, “All For One!” for everyone in the room as we celebrated the launch of their […]
Recently we facilitated a keynote interactive event for the Heraeus Kulzer Dental Conference. Attendees arrived from all parts of the US and Canada to attend this National Sales Meeting. The Heraeus Kulzer mission was to celebrate the growth of their new product line, Venus Pearl, along with their new customer network comprised of large group […]
For thousands of years, villages in Africa have commemorated milestone achievements by coming together for a unique celebration. Since the 2002 inception of Sonos, an innovative consumer electronics company, they’ve expanded their global reach to more than 60 countries and have established concrete relationships with thousands of retailers. We were thrilled to be part of their achievement […]
Conga line, anyone? That’s what happened when we had the pleasure of having an interactive drumming session with Tri-Counties Bank last month! This day was a perfect example of the excellence that can occur when you take a moment to celebrate and have fun with your team. We wanted to fuse the messaging of the […]
As we move through a busy part of the year, remembering to acknowledge the efforts of the people around us is more important than ever. Regularly recognizing the contributions and accomplishments of your team, your colleagues, or your employees creates a ripple effect that expands far behind the recipient. When we build an environment where […]
We’ve said before that rhythm resonates so deeply, but never before have we felt it as tremendously as we did last month in a very special event with GAP Inc in Japan. We’ve worked with GAP here in North America, leveraging the power of rhythm as a key component of their Leadership Academy, and we […]
Throughout the year, we take part in so many different types of events. We see it all—hotel ballrooms filled with hundreds of people, outdoor stages for thousands, holiday parties in the office and more. In between those large events, we get the opportunity to present for very intimate groups. These experiences always leave us inspired […]
As a business leader, you probably spend a great deal of time brainstorming ways to enhance employee innovation, increase productivity and expand your customer base. As we’ve talked about in previous posts, one of the best solutions to boosting innovation is to implement diversity and inclusion programs in the workplace. Obtaining a staff with unique […]
Sharing ideas to grow is at the core of every successful business. Without new ideas and fresh perspectives, we remain stagnant and still. This is why it is critical that we dust off the cobwebs and learn something new each and every day. We recently did an event with Microsoft’s Content Services and International team […]
