What Tom Morley's clients say
"Our people loved it, and they're STILL talking about it"
"To be honest we were anxious but within a minute of seeing Tom onstage, with the whole board up on their feet and smiling, we knew we'd booked the right guy."
"Three part harmony and people running to the stage to dance. I've never seen anything like it. They were still singing in the bar at midnight."
"We're always impressed with Tom's creative style. He's a speaker who certainly walks the talk and our audiences respond well to his hilarious authenticity!"
"Some facilitators you book as one-hit wonders and others you know you'll be partners in change over the coming years. I knew Tom would be in the latter category from our first event together in Vienna. The first of many worldwide."
"Flying a guy all the way from London, why? Tom got us doing creative stuff that was so off-the-wall we'd never have done it in house. He's so natural with it though, we just couldn't refuse."
"We'd come up with some new team strap lines. Tom turned them into grooves that we all played. A hundred of us with a hundred drums. I've still got one as a ringtone on my phone a year later."
"It was a sunny day and no one wanted to be inside. To our delight Tom set up a drum circle on the roof. Twenty of us in Central London, we felt like The Beatles at Abbey Road. It's pretty clear why they call him the Rockstar Activator."
Tom Morley's 2023 biography
Meet Tom Morley
Tom Morley is an expert in bringing people together. Using a vibrant blend of music and humour, he enables individuals and teams to activate their ‘rockstar energy’ and find their creative voice as a group. This equips them to work together harmoniously.
With a background in music, Tom was a founder member and the original drummer of Scritti Politti, the 80’s band who were pioneers of DIY music before appearing successfully on the dance scene. He’s also recorded with David Bowie and Madness.
Unlike other bands, Scritti Politti used to make up half their songs on stage, so from an early age Tom got used to taking risks in public. What it takes to hold your nerve when you have no idea of what’s coming next is second nature to him. Following a power-cut on stage in Berlin, Tom just kept playing a pounding beat and set up a vocal call-and-response chant with the audience. In that moment, the seed for Instant Teamwork, the international arts-based team building company he set up in 1999, was sown.
As the Rockstar Activator, Tom has worked with some of the world’s largest companies across the globe, including Vodafone, Disney, GSK, Hertz, Nokia, Cisco and many more. Whether he is working with a group of 10 or 200, in-person or online, the end result is always the same. One high performing team achieving an amazing team sound, creating a lasting legacy and a truly unforgettable experience.
