‘Perfect combination of professionalism and light-heartedness to create a powerful end to our event – a key highlight of the whole conference’ – Shamash Alidina – Founder of Happier World Conference
‘Writing a song, people were much more honest and open. It rejuvenated our office and there was a buzz for weeks afterwards!’ – Team Leader, BRIT Insurance
‘I feel happy and at peace and it’s not often that feeling arises during a work day’ – Google Wellbeing Week participant
''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 word I was thinking I wanted to feel at the end was ''jovial'' - I'm feeling very jovial now!''
''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."
"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’d spent the last 44 years convinced I was not a musician - what else is not true?!"
''I've never seen anything like that before - it was team-building without being aware we were team-building!''
'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.'
"It was everything I imagined it to be and so much more. It made me feel more human, rather than some robot."
"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!"
"This is an unarguably effective product - every company should do it! Our working atmosphere has completely changed - we are more open and collaborative, communication has improved and we feel more connected as a team."
'I feel really happy and at peace, and it's not often this feeling arises in the middle of the work day!'
'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.'
''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.''
