We get a lot of questions from our readers and the two questions we hear most often are:
How do you make a party fun?
How do you create a successful corporate event?
How do you make a corporate event fun?
Of course, it depends what your definition of fun is. Typically the answer to that question is: good planning and good entertainment. Plan time for socializing and maybe drinks and snacks, time for entertainment and time to chat and laugh post-entertainment. If you leave everyone to their own devices, you will find they literally wind up on their devices. Creating blocks of time where your guests experience different things allows them to enjoy themselves without growing bored. Depending on your audience, fun may be a comedian or some live music and dancing. It may be a mentalist or a magician. Knowing your audience will help you determine what will be the most fun for them.
How do you make sure your corporate event is successful?
Success lies in the details. Ensure everyone is comfortable, have food and beverages available, have great entertainment lined up, ensure everyone knows the agenda for the evening. Creating comfort and showing your guests every detail has been considered will ensure they enjoy the night. If it’s winter, consider a coat check so people don’t have clunky and potentially wet coats laying over their chair. If food is being laid out, ensure it can be accessed easily without too much of a line. Give a warning before entertainment starts so guests can wind up their conversations and make their way to their seats. Guests will notice the decor, the food, the entertainment - basically they will notice the effort put into the event. An event that is well put-together gives them peace of mind so they can relax and enjoy the event. Corporate events don’t need to be stuffy or dry. Let your guests know the intention for the evening is fun and laughs. Join them in letting loose and having some fun.
