Make Your Event Memorable
By Wendy Ronning
dread going to organization gatherings. The participants may be
stuck in meeting rooms all day, forced to mingle and network with
people they don 't know, or perhaps don 't care to know, or listen
to the same speech that has been given for the past 5 years.
How can you
make your next sales retreat, association meeting or company function
a time for your guest to favorably remember? One answer is to
make it unique, fun and exciting with outstanding forms of entertainment!
planners are concerned about hiring entertainment for their functions.
They worry that the material covered by the comedian will not
be corporate friendly, the magician will be pulling quarters from
behind the guests ears and making bad jokes, or the juggler who
claims that their flame throwing baton act is completely safe,
really isn't. This may be do to a previous experience with an
unprofessional performer or a horror story from a colleague.
is important to keep in mind that the right entertainment can
add tremendous value to your event and make it a fun, memorable
positive function. It can get your group involved working together
as a cohesive team, it can get them laughing and feeling good
about your event. And possibly more important, providing entertainment
for your guests can also help you relay your events message to
a positive event with entertainment, it is important to remember
1. The entertainment
should be corporate friendly. The performance should be clean
and free of inappropriate comments.
2. Your guests
should not be humiliated in any way, shape or form.
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
4. The entertainment
you hire should be novel and creative. No one wants to see the
same thing they have seen before! You want to bring your audience
something that is new, something to hold their interest.
four things in mind, you can make your next event a memorable
function that not only succeeds in entertaining your audience,
but if you decide, can also support your events message and objectives!
A great return on your investment!
