Wow! The Drum Café certainly exceeded all expectations at our recent Camp Culture event; l can assuredly say that WOW is the impression your TEAM left on our Employees. You really hit the mark with your presentation. The facilitation skills combined both learning and FUN and brought the purpose of the event full circle. It is our responsibility as Leaders at Southwest Airlines to perpetuate our Culture and keep the SPIRIT alive and well. I feel as though with your team’s help we have successfully driven that point home with our MIT [Mgmt In Training] Level II Participants.

On behalf of The Dow Chemical Company and the Propel To Excel planning team, I want to take this opportunity to compliment you and your staff for its professional and outstanding service during our Propel to Excel event, February 20-March 8, 2013 at the Four Seasons Hotel Houston, Houston, TX.
The Drum Cafe Team provided our group with exceptional and friendly service in all aspects of our needs. Our special thanks to you, as you were most instrumental in identifying our program requirements in the pre-planning stages. Once again and always, as you are fully aware - OUTSTANDING!
From all the comments I have received, our attendees had a most entertaining evening!

I just wanted to follow up and say “thank you” for providing us with a fantastic teambuilding experience at our June Business Meeting. The Drum Café got rave reviews and everyone was amazed at how well you personalized the event to our business. It was a pleasure working with you and I would be glad to provide a customer reference or testimonial for you.
Thanks for helping me hit the “homerun”. I am going to have a difficult time topping you guys the next time around. I hope we get the chance to work together again in the future.

Thank you to you and your team for making this a memorable and meaningful event.
I want to personally thank you for your contribution to our program. With the assistance of UT-Dallas and the Australia Graduate School of Mgmt, we had created a program that set out deliver a great deal of content within a very compressed period of time. While we had anticipated that your session would be pivotal in bringing the teams together, I hadn’t anticipated how successful it would be or what a defining moment it would be for the participants. I credit this to your detailed research and planning to identify the business issues and program deliverables to synthesize a single message that was delivered with great energy, enthusiasm and credibility. Thank you to you and your team for making this a memorable and meaningful event!

Our Drum Cafe session was significant from multiple perspectives. Folks were truly touched...the global buzz continues to this day. Thanks again for delivering a memorable and heartfelt program. We will use the Drum Cafe metaphor as a core catalyst to ignite CSC’s cultural and op model transformation journey as we launch a new era with our new CEO.
Chief Marketing Officer
I seriously want to say THANKS to you and your team. The Drum Cafe definitely exceeded our expectations in making our Safety Stand Down a memorable event.

Our students and staff loved the Drum Cafe experience. You are totally amazing in your ability to weave all the pertinent points into the interview with me about our goals and purpose into the presentation. I could not be more pleased. I do not say this lightly. I’ve been in the field of prevention for 20+ years and have been burned a few times.
I don’t know how familiar you may be with North East ISD, but we are a sophisticated district with a student body of 67,000 students and a staff of just under 10,000. Our staff is used to the highest quality staff development. As director of leadership development as well as for safe and drug free schools, it is imperative to me that all learning experiences provided through both of my departments are done with quality and excellence and have long term benefits. The Drum Cafe leading the way does that. The members of the team are also excellent and it is obvious that they love what they do.

I cannot thank you enough for such an amazing keynote on Thursday. I have heard nothing but rave reviews from attendees. You and your group have left a lasting impression to motivate and celebrate learning with the elementary principals of Texas. I’m grateful you were able to weave in so much relevant information about our organization and create such a strong sense of community. There was a joy spread throughout the conference after your session that left us all smiling…I still feel the glow. Thank you for making me look like the hero as the person who wanted you to come. If I can ever be a reference or assistance to you and drum café please let me know. I wish you a wonderful summer with joy and success at your fingertips. TRULY AMAZING!!! THANK YOU!!

The Drum Cafe was a wonderful, energetic, and exciting back to school convocation for our District. I have been in education for 30 years and I have never been to any more exciting and on-target opening ceremony to celebrate success and to generate motivation. You and your staff are to be commended and congratulated for the outstanding job you do.

Thank you once again for the wonderful program. As I stated before, I think this is the best program I have scheduled in my 9 yrs as a principal. My staff is pumped and ready to go. Do you guys have a 2nd year program? I’m already thinking of next year.
Manvel High School
I just wanted to touch base and let you know we had a GREAT program. Sevylla and the Team did an outstanding job. We ALL had a blast. It was a special afternoon. It was the “springboard” we needed to get us going into the new school year. I appreciate you and Drum Cafe!!
Mr. David Flowers
Heartfelt thanks for the amazing session we had with Drum Cafe last week. The timing was so perfect, your message so important, the afternoon SO FUN! It really was the highlight of the week, certainly for me, and I think for most of the staff. We received feedback forms following our week of inservice and so many people mentioned Drum Cafe- describing it as “transcending!” They were also amazed (as was I) at how prepared you were. “He seemed like one of us!” (I overheard). I sincerely hope we can have you all back to do a program for our students. Thank you for making such a strong, positive impact on our staff. Your work is important.
