TESTIMONIALS

\"Danielle is an exceptional facilitator, able to hold a room and create an environment that delivered the team outcome we were looking for" - Rebecca, Merkle

I had just about given up on finding a suitable team activity, when I discovered The House That Dan Built’s ukelele activity. They came to us, tailored a workshop for us to fit in 2 hours, and I couldn’t believe we actually learnt chords and wrote two songs in that time! The young artists were so friendly and relaxed so we didn’t feel intimidated by their talent – and they brought out talents we didn’t know we had!  Thanks so much for making us feel like musicians for a day!

- Nathalie, Sydney Opera House

"I loved working with a younger age group. It was great for the team to relax while dealing with a difficult work period”

- Kate, Columbus Group

“It was such a joy to have Danielle and the two young facilitators join us at our team’s strategy day. Working in the arts, this activity was the perfect team bonding activity to remind us why we work in this industry and how important it is to bring a touch of creativity, out-of-the-box thinking, collaboration and FUN to everything we do as we team."

- Caitlyn, Sydney Opera House

I didn’t think I could do it but my team let off some steam and created a funny song about how we would like to scrap Mondays.” - John, Hendrick Automotive Group
