Charles Hazlewood is an international conductor and musical revolutionary.
He has conducted some of the greatest classical repertoire with some of the best orchestras in the world and is a significant presence on British television and radio.
He is the founder of the world’s first "Paraochestra" and his critically acclaimed
music theatre shows tour the world. His innovations have created new audiences for orchestral music and even reset what our concept of an ‘orchestra’ is.
Hazlewood is a visionary with a mission to bring the ever modern joy
of orchestral music to the 21st century audience and in doing so, to change
lives and communities for the better.
“Normally when the speaker is wheeled in, it’s all very predictable and patronising. However, Charles ran a 2 hour work shop that managed to get the group of over 20 global managers working together more positively - it was all we could talk about at dinner, evoking debate and conversation.”
Vanessa Lunt, Group PR + Events Director, Mulberry
“Charles Hazlewood is a dazzling speaker and performer. He engages and excites his audiences, and they catch his energy and intelligence so that the room is more upbeat and uplifted when he finishes. We’re big fans.”
Julia Hobsbawm OBE, Founder, Names Not Numbers
“Simply inspirational. It’s very rare for a presenter to have the ability to make an audience laugh and cry in the same talk. Very moving and thought provoking. He managed to make it relevant to everyone in the audience, whatever their roles in the organisation”
Dawn Haywood. Education Director. Windsor Academy Trust
“Charles was one of the highlights of Google Zeitgeist in 2013, and we’ve booked him for several events since. He got us laughing, crying and singing, all in the same hour. He was inspiring, funny and moving. He ‘hid’ a small orchestra in the audience, and it was an utterly magical moment when they started to play and the attendees realised they were there! Charles is always open to new ideas and feedback. He is a pleasure to work with: an all-round great guy.”
Conductor whose musical performances shake up tradition; he has done opera in South African townships and formed the Paraorchestra which performed at the Paralympics. His mission is to bring orchestral music alive for new audiences and is an inspirational and motivational performer. A bit leftfield admittedly but the make up of an orchestra and the skills to lead it are very transferrable to a corporate setting.
He uses music and takes a classic and jazz approach to generate learning experiences for the business world, to help develop leadership, innovation and teamwork.
After a distinguished career at the helm of two American orchestras, Roger Nierenberg emerged as a creative force for innovation in the presentation of symphonic music. A regular visitor to the UK, Roger can provide a highly stimulating addition to conferences and corporate events.
