“Rhythm Mastery provided a spirited creative process drumming session for our annual strategic retreat which was very well received by our staff! Participants described the workshop as “fun”, “energizing”, “creative”, “collaborative”, “inclusive”, “a musical education”, “great right-brain balance to the left-brain work of strategy planning”,  and “great opportunity to interact creatively”. The drumming process energized the group, rejuvenated our spirits, created a sense of effective teamwork, and also helped us surface important strategic opportunities which might otherwise have stayed hidden. The workshop will have an important impact on our strategic planning process. Rhythm Mastery delivers on its goal to be fun and real!”

Ed Whittingham, Executive Director, The Pembina Institute

“Malcolm Lim provided Leadership development training to Families Matter full staff on two separate occasions. Working with Malcolm is in itself a creative activity! He carefully explores the context that the organization is currently in and imagines the desired future state through dialogue, shared reading and deep listening before he puts together a challenging, yet playful, series of experiences that are purposefully designed to open possibilities for learning. The impact of these workshops has been far reaching and has contributed to our evolving culture of co-creation and shared Leadership.”

 Paula Woolley, CEO, Families Matter

Malcolm Lim is a master drummer and creative process facilitator extraordinaire. By skilfully illuminating key concepts from the world of business and leadership through the captivating medium of percussion, Malcolm has a rare talent that can quickly take a group of curious individuals well beyond their creative potential. I have had the privilege of both observing and working with Malcolm for over 10 years and in that time have experienced with sheer awe how his unique touch,creative techniques, humility and heart can give new meaning to the word “inspiration”.

A drumming circle hosted by Rhythm Mastery was the perfect way to kick-off our national conference for youth: the energy, unison, and sense of collective purpose created by the circle were exactly what we needed to get participants out of their comfort zones and into a more open, inspired mindset. Many surprised themselves with what they were capable and willing to do. We look forward to hosting Rhythm Mastery at our next event.”
