“David DiLullo is a pleasure to work with. He is the consummate professional bringing the gift of sound and music-making to the corporate arena. We've worked together twice this year at Genentech - I asked David for his help in creating a memorable experience where people could drop out of their heads and into the parts of us that the corporate world cannot honor: the heart and the body. My two groups had the opportunity to feel deeply unified within themselves, and intimately connected to each other (50+ person group) as they engaged in creating something most of them had never experienced before. We made beautiful music together, and the entire experience, ambiance, welcoming environment has turned into a beloved event. Thank you, David - and many thanks to your team as well without whom we would miss some structural elements. I so look forward to working with you again... and again... and again.”
- Robin Parker Meredith, Executive Coach (Genentech Event)
"Dave really connected with our employees and immediately made them comfortable with this new and unique activity. Even the skeptics were soon jumping in and having fun drumming! Many commented how good it was for the psyche – allowed them to relax and let off steam! I know the team will remember this event and want to do it again!"
- Lia McKenzie, Cisco Services Technology Group
"Dave and his team delivered a great team event on budget and were very easy to work with. They brought professionalism to everything they did, and provided a relaxed, non-intimidating atmosphere for our team to be themselves and let go of some of the stress of the day! I highly recommend Global Drum Circles for a corporate team-building exercise."
- Maryam Ahmadi, Intel Corp.
"Dave's drum circles helped bring a stronger sense of unity to our teams. The unique "visioning" exercise underscored our potential to do even greater things this year. Overall, drumming was a fun way for the whole team to end on an "up-beat". Dave is a strong communicator and knows how to appropriately bring new experiences like drumming into a corporate setting...and he took the time to truly understand and deliver our goals for the event. I would highly recommend Global Drum Circles to any company looking for a unique and memorable team-building event."
- Jennifer Aguilar, SAP
“I've been fortunate to work with David and his team on several large (up to 120 global leaders) d.school executive educational programs at Stanford University. My team was very intent on the drumming delivering specific teaching points in a very narrow window and David was able to customize his offering to meet our needs. David is also fantastic in front of a crowd. He provided clear, confident instruction that resulted in wonderful harmony (impressive considering the size of group and most were novices). It was magical to hear 120 drums playing in sync and see the executives step out of their normal routine to do something completely different and sometimes slightly uncomfortable. I recommend him highly for these sorts of programs and expect he could execute many others.”
- Sarah Holcomb, Stanford Graduate Business School
"Amazing drum circle! ...180 people drumming for peace, for love and for the power of intention! The walls were literally shaking with the vibration and energy of the collective consciousness! Thank you David DiLullo for facilitating the experience that people are still talking about!"
- Rev. Joe Hooper, Palm Desert Center for Spiritual Living
"Dave’s work in rehabilitation programs for stroke and brain injury survivors offers an exciting new channel for healing and recovery. After the last drum circle, a stroke survivor with partial paralysis claimed that he had forgotten about his affliction for the first time."
- Mahnaz Motayar, Ph.D., Licensed Neuropsychologist
"The drumming does something magical…it truly is a platform for much more than stress reduction. Dave’s music really adds to the breadth of our programming here…Both patients and employees have raved about the experience and are asking for more."
- MiMi Belser, Manager, Mind-Body Wellness Center, Dept of Health Education, Kaiser Santa Clara
"Dave does more than lead drum circles – he opens others up to the very best of who they are! Dave continually adjusts to the energy of the room, intuitively knowing how to bring each participant to their full potential…awakening an “aliveness” within all of those attending. I have no doubt that those participating tap into a higher sense of their own inner purpose."
- Rev. Jane Beach, Conscious Living Center, Mountain View
"Dave's drum circle helped make our meeting a success for everyone. Much more than an icebreaker, we were looking for an innovative way to bring a diverse group of AT&T leaders from various disciplines and tenures together, and inspire them to "think as one" in a very short span of time. Dave's positive contribution and infectious energy were a key element."
- Stephen J Hannel, AT&T, Area Sales Manager, Advertising Solutions

- Rasamayi, Events Manager, East West Bookstore, Mountain View
