Corporate Event Ideas
Whether you are hosting a product launch, rewarding your clients or celebrating with staff, a successful corporate event will help get everyone talking about your company.
So, when it comes to making your event memorable, everything from food, drink and location can have a huge impact. But what about entertainment?
Having performed at countless corporate events for companies including BBC Radio Nottingham, John Deere Group, Price Waterhouse Cooper, Nottingham University and Centre Parcs, I know first-hand the positive impact the right act can have. The right corporate entertainment act can promote interaction and boost networking amongst attendees through a shared experience. It can help employees switch off from work and relax.
Here are a few of the best types of act I have had the pleasure to work alongside in my years as a corporate event entertainer.
Typically, this sort of entertainment is better for smaller and more intimate corporate events. Caricaturists serve as a great ice breaker and guests can share the laughs or cringe-worthy moments while gathered around the artists. That said, the event could be transferred to a screen for a wider-reaching effect.
Not too dissimilar to the caricaturist, a silhouette artist adds an element of fascination for the attendees and another way to establish bonds between guests and promote networking as people discuss the act and laugh together, which is a fantastic way to reduce stress. There is even scope for your corporate theme to be included in the act to promote your business and what is more, guests get to take away a keepsake.
Singers and Musicians
Singers and musicians are always ideal whether your event is corporate, a wedding or a private party and are often the go-to for events entertainment. With such a wide range of music styles from groups, soloists or tribute acts, nothing beats a bit of music to get everyone dancing. And while you cannot please all of the people all of the time in terms of the genre you choose, music can never fail to boost morale and bring smiles across the board.
Champagne Dress Hostess
Queuing at the bar can be a little dull, even at the most exciting of events. But now imagine queuing to take your glass of prosecco from an entire dress made of them. It’s a talking point for certain and a great way to treat clients and employees alike.
This sort of corporate magician is a great act to entertain larger audiences during or after sit down meals but also has the added bonus of audience participation. Laughter and wonderment will mean your event is talked about for months if not years to come.
Mind Reader and Mentalist
Of course I couldn’t go without mentioning what I do as a corporate event entertainer. With packages for trade shows, exhibitions, award shows or even the Christmas party, my mind-bending performances will leave guests amazed as I manipulate minds, make predictions and even get guests to read the minds of other attendees. There are numerous benefits to hiring a mentalist for a corporate event whether you have 10 guests or 1,000. My flexible and bespoke packages mean I can more often than not meet every professional requirement you have for your event.
So if you have a corporate event coming up in the next few months or are wondering if you can still make your Christmas function that little bit different this year, then get in touch.
