Dominic Alldis‘s Biography


Dominic Alldis is a jazz musician, orchestral conductor and business speaker. He performs regularly in concert halls and jazz clubs around the world, and has made several acclaimed recordings. He has also written books about jazz and teaches improvisation to classical pianists at the Royal Academy of Music in London.

For over 15 years he has also been working with the world’s leading companies and business schools to create powerful learning experiences that use the metaphor of music to explore a range of key business concerns: leadership, collaboration, creativity, listening, decision-making, talent-management and the pursuit of excellence.

During his seminars, Dominic describes how the conductor of an orchestra provides inspirational leadership and how jazz musicians collaborate and innovate though improvisation. He also shows how musical concepts such as harmony, artistry and performance have a resonance in the world of business. His thought-provoking and transformative presentations often include demonstration at the piano, with the option of a live orchestra or jazz band for large-scale events.
