John Hagedorn
Endorsed Drum Circle Facilitator
Country of Residence:
John has been a drummer for his whole life and a facilitator for his entire career, so it was only natural that sooner or later these worlds would merge.

As a training facilitator for Better Training Solutions (BTS) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, John began experimenting with drums in his corporate programs in 2003. Pleased with the results and with the happy responses from participants, he started his DCF training at Arthur Hullís East Coast program and has attended ten more since. He has also produced four DCF programs for Arthur and Remo in Kuala Lumpur.

John uses drum and rhythm interventions as a metaphor for teaching business communications to corporate executives. Through group drumming, his participants come to understand the importance if listening and working/playing together, unity through diversity, and change management. They also learn how workteams are built much the same way that a group of non-drummers transforms into a performance-level percussion ensemble.

In addition to corporate work, John facilitates two monthly community circles and works regularly with the Malaysian Parkinsonís Disease Association. His 16-year-old daughter, Rhonwyn, is also a qualified DCF and accompanies him on most of their gigs.
