Contrary to what most people may think, corporate events do not have to be dull. Most corporate events have this reputation because of the lack of creativity and the vision to present something truly interesting. Having an inspiring and entertaining corporate event does not always require a huge budget or an extravagant stage.
If you want to plan a fun yet truly motivating corporate event that will make your employees and clients want to be with you for a long time, here are some tips you should follow:
Before you think about what will be included in your corporate event, first think about what the event is all about. What is the event trying to achieve? What is the purpose of the event? Is the event meant to promote a new product or service? Is the event meant to increase employee morale? Is the event just a fun get-away for your employees and clients?
Before you prepare for the event, you first need to have a clear idea about why you are holding the event in the first place. Only when you have a clear and specific idea about the purpose of the event will you be able to make a truly compelling and inspiring event.
Once you have a clear idea about what the purpose of the event is, then you should think about how you can make the event special. One way to do this is to theme the event around your company's core values. Songs can also be themed to fit your organisation. You can make the event fun by entertaining your employees and clients with something they will never get tired of listening to. At the same time, you can convey your company's core values by showcasing the positive attributes of your company through music.
Most corporate events fail because of poor planning. Many planners do not want to be accused of being boring, mundane, or unimaginative. Hence, they try to incorporate everything into their events, making the event uninteresting.
If you want to make your event an entertaining and genuinely inspiring one, you should keep it simple by focusing on the most important things you would like to achieve. If you are having a corporate day at the beach, for example, then you should focus on some of the biggest aspects, such as the venue, the food, and the entertainment. These three things will decide whether your event ends up unique and memorable.
In addition to theming around your organisation, you can highlight the company culture and values. If your company prides itself on quality and excellence, you can showcase this by having a logo design or a poster-making contest. You can ask your employees to come up with the most creative way to convey the core values of your company. You can even have the company's core values highlighted by staging a company skit or a company poetry contest. These are just a few ways to use your culture to make an engaging corporate event.
The world today is fast-paced. No one is thinking about the seasons and holidays anymore. However, you can use the current season to make your event truly fun and inspiring.
You can have a summer party if your company just released a new product or have a beach party if your company is located near the sea. There are numerous ways to use the season to your advantage and make your event an unconventional and enticing one.
The next time you plan for a corporate event, think about it as an opportunity for you to truly inspire your employees and clients. You can do this by thinking about the purpose of the event and how you can further strengthen your bond with stakeholders.
