Every corporate event offers an opportunity to network with your associates and grow relationships, but the best events offer ways to make that happen. A great band can be an ice breaker, great entertainment, and the crowning event at any corporate training event. Whether you’re planning an annual weekend away with spouses or a big conference for the marketing team, you’ll want to know your audience and offer reflective and memorable entertainment for the event.
But the event is so much more than just the entertainment…
How you set up your entertainment for the event matters. Socializing and strategizing with co-workers for making memories and helping everyone to make the most of your corporate training is a huge issue at any event.
They all cost a lot of money. So you’ll need to make the most of every dollar. I have an answer for that.
Find the Top Entertainment Option with an Event Planning Agent
An event planning agent takes the ‘stuffy business meeting’ out of the ball room and inserts fun, festive, networking, and team building satisfaction with GREAT entertainment. Above all, you want your people to remember the training they receive at your event beyond all else. If your music selection keeps them talking about the event until daybreak, don’t you think they’re going to remember all the details?
1 – Hire a Professional and Don’t Stress
When you hire someone who knows what they’re doing, you don’t have to. You can close the doors and relax, and enjoy the event with everyone else. If you don’t… You’re going to have to worry about all the details, fix the details, and be on super call while the rest of your team is trying to build a tribe.
Concentrate on YOUR message and let the professional entertainers provide the distractions.
2 – Hire Experience for Quality’s Sake
Entertainment Agents who have more than 4 or 5 years of experience have to be either good, or really skinny. If you aren’t any good, you’ll starve to death in the planning industry. Quality is job one, and if you don’t have quality, you won’t be able to get value from the services performed. Experience allows you to know what will and what won’t work. That’s important when people are laying down the big bucks. You’d better know. Be sure to expect quality.
3 – Hire Adaptable Entertainment Options
It’s really unlikely your whole audience will change from pop culture to big band era overnight, but you may need to adjust a few songs at the last minute. You don’t want some mic-jockey chanting about a topic of great stress if your management team has faced that in the past week. Try some adaptable music options.
Flexibility to adapt, customize the experience and optimize the song topics is a great way to incorporate current events into your music selections.
Make your event successful from the team building aspect and the band won’t matter so much, but if the band works, you don’t have to be concerned about any other thing in the event.
