It’s been a long and gloomy winter.
Now it’s time to lift each other up and create the future that we really want.

Former Royal Marine General Andy Salmon CMG OBE and concert-pianist and film composer Tom Donald invite you to experience a unique fusion of story and improvised piano, co-creating a better future in the process.

With the General’s years of experience in co-creating change and transformation as well as inspiring journeys to a better life through his campaigns, and the Maestro’s musical gymnastics and imagination, we have put together a special show for you. In this immersive experience, we are going to give you a glimpse of how we combine music and story, using improvisation to help co-create, innovate and inspire journeys to build better lives. 

Tom and Andy have collaborated on several productions in the Journey Through Conflict series, including their recent album, “Iraq”. They have witnessed the profound impact this fusion of story and improvisation has on peoples’ hearts and minds. In their work, they have seen harmonious environments created, where people who are grappling with big challenges, come together and imagine a brighter future. 

Now, Tom and Andy want to take this further. They want to help leaders, organisations and people transcend the norm, free their minds, explore and co-create new futures. And then innovate and build inspiring journeys to reach their destination.  The General and the Maestro can help you unlock a wonderful future. 

From the comfort of your own home, we bring you a 60-minute immersion to help you discover purpose and clarity for the year ahead. We will also record and collaborate on a track together, inspired by the improvisations and insights from the immersion, leaving a group legacy from the event!
