Music and Songwriting

Music is an excellent way to get a message across and inspire people. Ayd performs songs on guitar to open and close his talks as well as using the banjo to explain how the creative brain works.

Music is also a perfect metaphor for how businesses (and our lives) should be run. There are rules and boundaries that need to be understood and within which we need to operate to create harmony, melody, rythymn and symphonies; everthing working wonderfully well as a whole to attain our goal.

Ayd has written hundreds of songs, many of which have a suitable message for meetings. He is also able to compose a song with lyrics specifically about your industry, company, people or current projects or challenges. The songs can have a serious tone or be humourus and can be performed at your event be it a training session, conference or awards ceremony.

Alanis Morissett's 'Ironic' turned into a positive thinking song.
