They are portable, colourful, easy to learn and can’t be taken too seriously.
We come to your office or wherever your team day is happening. In the past we’ve had workshops in parks, pubs, bell tents and cocktail bars. Choosing a new environment often helps with the creative process and allows you to really switch off from work.
There are a range of packages available. The Full Power starts at £1500 and includes an initial consultation, tailoring to the needs of your team, a half-day workshop and a follow up coaching session with the team 4-8 weeks later. There are discounts available for early-stage start ups and charities – just ask!
For the ukulele workshops – the ideal group size is between 15-25 but we can cater for groups of up to 60 on request.
For songwriting workshops eg. at conferences – no limit!
Power of Uke mostly work in London but can travel upon request.
We bring all the ukuleles and resources. The only thing you need to provide is the space and an open mind!
Yes! In the past we have run Christmas songwriting parties, staff socials, school workshops, teacher training, festival workshops, conferences and even hen-dos. Drop us a line if you’ve got an idea of how Power of Uke can help you.
The great thing about the ukulele is it’s accessible. Sarah has taught the ukulele all over the world and people always manage a tune! But finding the music dif-ficult is also kind of the point – you’ll learn a lot about yourself and your team-mates through doing something a little uncomfortable. And maybe it’s time to challenge the teacher in your head that’s telling you that ‘you’re not musical’ – you know the one we mean…

''Sarah is an amazing facilitator/storyteller. She got 40 hard nosed consultants to engage with the ukulele. Thank you for your energy and sense of play - really lit up our evening.''
''Our team really needed this today. Because they are client- facing they are always 'on'. Today they were able to kick back.''
"We achieved more than I thought we would. It was fascinating to see how the song writing got us working more creatively as a team - it made me realise how little we modify our styles of working."
'I feel really happy and at peace, and it's not often this feeling arises in the middle of the work day!'
''I ask my team members all the time if they're using all their skills and they say ''yes'' - but in this workshop I saw them in roles I'd never seen them in before - for some it was a complete transformation.''
''I often feel scared of failing or not being good at something so it's nice for us all to be out of our comfort zones and achieve positive results. Sometimes tasks seem intimidating and you don't know where to start - it was good to break it down to smaller tasks. It also help you look at things a bit more creatively and more open to change."
'I haven't checked my phone in two hours - I can't remember the last time I did that! I am, without a doubt, going to be more productive this afternoon now.'
''The session was two years ago but the team still talk about it, and at the end of every team event the anthem we wrote comes out with pride. Sarah is a unique talent and I couldn't recommend working with her highly enough.''
''I felt really anxious before I came in and now I feel SO RELAXED and HAPPY! I actually feel like myself again - I haven't felt that way for MONTHS!''
"The shared experience meant I saw my colleagues as human and felt more able to approach them in the future. I was skeptical but I’m really glad our team pushed for this! Power of Uke indeed!"
“Literally the best team building activity I’ve ever done. All of the mixing of groups worked so well, allowed you to work with everyone through the day! Also Sarah’s ability to remember everyone’s names was insane.”
'I feel happy, relaxed and have this smile stuck on my face. I have this new air around me making me feel confident and with a 'can do' attitude. I now have confidence to try out more activities that I never would have dared to do.'
"Power of Uke was a very pleasant surprise in the world of cringe and cheesy team building activities. Sarah is great in the delivery, bringing enough of a corporate aspect to link things together, but keeping it light-hearted and enjoyable"
''The word I was thinking I wanted to feel at the end was ''jovial'' - I'm feeling very jovial now!''
''Sarah delivered an exceptional ukulele workshop to my team in Microsoft during an offsite. Her charisma and experience as a facilitator was the perfect mix between professional and fun. Would thoroughly recommend it.''
''Sarah's brief was to come into Hello Fresh UK and help us all have more of a ''Growth Mindset'' - she totally nailed it. The whole team left feeling inspired with a real ''can-do'' attitude. What a refreshing change.''
''I've never seen anything like that before - it was team-building without being aware we were team-building!''
"It was everything I imagined it to be and so much more. It made me feel more human, rather than some robot."
