‘Our team really needed this today. It’s been really high pressure recently and because they’re client facing, they almost never have a chance to kick-back. Today they were able to let go. ’ – Team Leader – Ernst and Young
‘I feel happy and at peace – and it’s not usual that feeling arises on a work day.’ – participant at Google well-being week
‘I saw team members in roles I’d never seen them in before. For some it was a complete transformation.’ Team Leader – BRIT Insurance
‘That was so revealing and I learned so much about my team. We should use that instead of Personality Tests!’ Team Leader – Financial Times
‘That was amazing. I had so much more confidence to talk to other people at the networking drinks because we’d all sung together!’ – Entrepreneur at Start Up and Bloom
‘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
"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!"
"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"
“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.”
''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.''
"It was everything I imagined it to be and so much more. It made me feel more human, rather than some robot."
''Our team really needed this today. Because they are client- facing they are always 'on'. Today they were able to kick back.''
'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.'
''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've never seen anything like that before - it was team-building without being aware we were team-building!''
''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 feel really happy and at peace, and it's not often this feeling arises in the middle of the work day!'
''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!''
''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.''
'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.'
''The word I was thinking I wanted to feel at the end was ''jovial'' - I'm feeling very jovial 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.''
"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."
