Deloitte uses opera to train staff

Corporate singing consultants Kathryn Hide and Graham Singleton have been
working with 14 employees in Deloitte’s global banking team to improve their
teamwork and presentation skills.

Deloitte said that training its employees with singing lessons provided them
with the confidence to make decisions, be creative and communicate ideas, the
Daily Telegraph reported.

The Deloitte singers engage in strenuous vocal warm-up exercises and they
sing in Congolese because the language has ‘long vowels’.

Deloitte partner Chris Harvey, who hired Hide and Singleton said: ‘I don’t
think any of the team has sung before but I didn’t have any problems getting
them along. It’s been very effective and everyone has had a good time.’
