“It was great fun and people were buzzing about it for the rest of the evening. The First Vice President was absolutely delighted with it. You and the team did an excellent job in coaching the four groups, and lots of people commented to me on how professional you were, as well as making it very enjoyable. The flashmob performance was brilliant, and set up the rest of the event really well. The plans worked perfectly! I hope you can do more sessions like these – they have a real benefit in bringing teams closer together.”
- Director of Internal Communications, EBRD (LCV organised a singing workshop for 80 senior bank executives, including the bank’s First Vice President.)

Create a sense of community and develop new relationships
Improve feel-good factor and positivity

Break down barriers between teams and organisational hierarchies
A class of chemicals have recently been discovered called endocannabinoids. We make these in our bodies and they improve our mood. It is speculated that they are associated with the high that comes from doing exercise and dancing. They are also released during singing!
Singing is a natural form of expression and it has been shown to improve our sense of happiness and wellbeing. The “happy neurochemicals” dopamine, serotonin and β-endorphin are released during singing. Actively singing has a greater effect on mood than passively listening to music. Some evidence also suggests that performing music can help sustain a healthy immune system, by reducing the stress hormone cortisol and boosting the Immunoglobin A antibody.
