Steve Barnett ( is regarded as one of the worlds top corporate motivation performers. Without words and through rhythm and humour, his enthusiasm creates a remarkable energy that is the finest interactive experience that South Africa has to offer. He is dedicated to the philosophy of African percussion and making it part of the way organisations and communities operates. As a pioneer of the interactive corporate drumming concept in South Africa he has developed a unique non-verbal approach to group events. He is currently making a big impact in the global circuit. He has performed at events in classical auditoriums, conference centres, and in stadiums with thousands but is equally comfortable at intimate teambuilding sessions in corporate surroundings or bush lodges. Using only a baton and facial expressions, he conducts his audiences, from 30 to 30 000, musically and rhythmically so that they experience the power of being a part of an orchestra, gaining valuable insights into communication, leadership and fun. He spent much time in his youth traveling with an extended stretch teaching in a village mountain school and working on voluntary building projects in rural areas. He believes that the rhythm and energy of his country are a real value to share with the world.
