Are you frustrated with planning company events that do not seem to get the employees’ attention? When organizations prepare events for the entertainment of their people, or even their clients, these are called corporate entertainment. Corporate entertainment was originally designed to build rapport and relationships between the company and the clients but now, these events are used to strengthen teamwork and bond between the employees.
Before, corporate entertainment is confined to gatherings that have music as its only form of enjoyment. Of course, you would agree that attending events that are always limited to eating and listening to music or to speakers can be tiring. Moreover, if your company only organizes such entertainment, your goal which is to entertain and to build relationships between colleagues and clients will fail. Why? It is because sooner or later, they may lose interest, may not pay attention to whatever is being said or performed, or worse, may start not attending the events. Now that would really not be good, right?
Now, there are different forms of corporate entertainment that would surely serve whatever your purpose of gathering people is. It’s not just speakers and music anymore! If you want to review your company’s development, or if you want to discuss future projects, or marketing goals over dinner, why don’t you do it while having fun? How? You can get a comedian to entertain your people throughout the event. You could choose from a variety of comedians like college, Christian, or celebrity comedians.
Aside from comedians, you may also want to try variety acts. And this would not just give any kind of entertainment, but will also amaze your participants. For example, mentalists will surely awe your employees and clients by their acts such as telepathy, divination, and psychokinesis. Magicians are also a good way to keep the people attentive and at the same time, amused. Other examples of acts that you could get are balloonists, game shows, jugglers, and ventriloquists.
If you want to have gatherings that are not limited to banquets, dinners, or conventions, do not worry. Corporate entertainment could also be given outdoors. You can arrange company picnics. In this way, your get-togethers will not only be a way to discuss company-related matters but would also be an opportunity for team building, foster camaraderie, and fellowship while enjoying the outdoors. Or maybe, you could rent games and rides. These would surely make your gathering enjoyable. Boogie heads, slot cars, ahoy matey, micro reality racing, and t-ball are some of the many games and rides you can choose from.
As you can see, organizing events that would function both for business matters and in development of interpersonal relationships will be more effective if you provide corporate entertainment. And remember… do not be confined with one or two type of entertainment every time you prepare events like these.
