How to make your event memorable by Jesse Lewis

Some people dread going to different company gatherings from the corporate holiday party to team building events – the participants might be stuck in a meeting rooms all day forced to mingle and network with people they don’t know or perhaps they just don’t care to know or listen to that same speech has been given for the past 5 years in a row. These types of events are not helping you or your company grow. 

How can you make your next sales retreat, association meeting or company function a time for your guests to really remember in a great way? One answer is to make it unique, fun and exciting with outstanding forms of entertainment.

Many event planners are concerned about hiring entertainment for their functions. They worry the material covered by the comedian will not be clean and corporate-friendly, the magician will be pulling quarters from behind guests ears and making lame jokes, or the entertainment will be just plain boring.  This perception may be due to previous experiences  with unprofessional entertainers or a Horror Story from a colleague. However it is important to keep in mind that the right entertainment can add a tremendous value to your event and make it a fun memorable positive function for your company.

The right entertainment can get your group involved and working together as a cohesive team, you can get them laughing and feeling good about your event. Possibly more important, providing entertainment for your guests can also help you relate your message to the group.

When creating a positive event with entertainment it is important to remember the following:

  1. The entertainment should be corporate friendly. The performance should be clean and free of inappropriate comments or humor.
  2. Your guests should not be humiliated in any way shape or form. This is becoming more prevalent throughout North America with more restrictions and social issues coming forward.
  3. The Act should have good intent.  Getting your audience laughing together is a wonderful thing but the laughter should not be at the expense of others.
  4. The entertainment you hire should be fun and creative. No one wants to see the same thing they have seen before! You will want to bring your audience something that is new, something to hold their interest.

Keeping these things in mind, you can make your next event a memorable function that not only succeeds in entertaining your audience, but if you decide to it can also support your messages and company objectives. This can be a great return on your investment!
