Tom Morley

Scritti Politti Founder, Team Building Guru and Conference Energiser

Tom Morley's claim to fame is being a founding member of Scritti Politti, the 70s / 80s band who were pioneers of DIY music before appearing on the dance music scene. Tom was the original drummer in Scritti Politti and unlike other bands Scritti used to make songs up on stage. How is this significant to you? Tom is a master of reading the room and delivering exactly what your audience needs, with humour, skill and panache.

Tom talks about THE GROOVE rather than the drums. Yes, rhythm is referenced but it’s the outcomes of people making music together that are important, just like in those DIY days. Bonding, risk-taking, listening to each other while not losing your own identity. These things happen in an orchestra and pop band alike. All of them are relevant to current business challenges.

Tom Morley has developed a way of living where every experience leads to the humorous uncovering of some universal truth, he’s learned to turn his successes AND his disasters into stand-up comedy. His description of both the highs and lows of life as an artist, musician and entrepreneur have people in stitches. Delivered, it has to be said, as if he’s describing a trip to the corner shop.

Having run hundreds of team building events around the world Tom is very comfortable onstage, he feels at home there. He’s always willing to share it and collaborate with whoever else is on the schedule for the day – if there’s a way of deepening the conference message with a custom-written anthem that the whole group can sing or drum along too just mention it when you speak to us. Everything is possible.

Topics

Walking the Talk

Like those sports people with their medals and mountain climbers with their avalanche tales you know from his face that Tom has put the rock’n’roll hours in. This is a story of late-night risks and glamorous disasters. Not just thinking out the box but BEING out the box.

Audience Interaction Keynote

Breaking through a limiting belief on your own is good but doing it en masse is very impressive. If you hear yourselves singing in harmony in real time, your team there onsite, there’s no going back. You just achieved the impossible.

Big Show Keynote

Design, re-design, every voice heard and disciplined rehearsals leading to NOW-FACTOR glory. Quite simply the most memorable heart-opening conference in the world.

Tom Morley is one of the most inspirational creatives I have ever worked with. His ideas spill out of him and the ability to make them happen comes straight afterwards. He is refreshing to listen to, is committed to his values and leaves the listener thinking "why not?" His drumming is pretty good too and he gets a party going like no other I know.

SEED Network

I'm convinced that what our team experienced thanks to Tom's unique ability to engage every crowd on our Roadshow has been instrumental in our improved performance at HERTZ. He created magical experiences with incredible energy, the team went way beyond their normal boundaries to genuinely care for each other, feeling strong, united, inspired and unbeatable.

Hertz Group

When you bring large numbers of people together, their first instinct is often to determine and demonstrate where they sit in the hierarchy. Tom’s ability to completely negate that hierarchy, in favour of unearthing the much more important red thread that binds a team together around an idea or an opportunity, is exceptional. He manages to tune in to and capture a resonance that everyone embraces, leaving people feeling not only personally inspired and motivated, but having formed what are likely to be long-term relationships with others with whom they may never before have passed the time of day.
