Everybody is looking forward to that company event next month, but you just started thinking about planning it right now. That means you’re probably beginning to panic a little bit. No need to do so, since we’ve got you covered!
These corporate event ideas are perfect if you’re running short on time and inspiration, but you still want your event to be a total success (so that you can take all the credit for planning it, of course):
You can’t go wrong with a themed event
The last thing employees want to attend another boring corporate event where they’ll have to act totally professional and not be able to show off their personality. If you want to give employees a chance to let loose, nothing beats a themed party, but it’s important to think outside-the-box if you want to surprise attendees. For instance, you could:
- Plan a future themed party and ask everybody to dress like something from the future. Keep the decor simple and serve drinks named after things in the future like “The Flying Car” or “The Teleporter”.
- Organize a 1001 Arabian Nights themed party. Think mysterious treasures, Persian carpets, low tables, and divan seating or cushions. In this case, Persian and Middle Eastern restaurants make for the perfect venues.
The important thing is to choose a theme that will allow everybody to get away from their everyday selves and have some fun with their colleagues.
Hire a comedian
Since we’re talking about corporate event ideas, we couldn’t leave this one out. It’s no joke: Laughter brings people together and strengthens relationships with co-workers.
Booking a comedian is an easy way to take care of the entertainment for the night, and rest assured that everybody will have a good time attending the event.
You need someone who uses clean humor, someone who can make jokes without offending anybody in the room. For that, we recommend somebody like Jeremy Hotz. His humor will certainly please your audience and bring your event to life.
Book a ventriloquist
Your event will definitely stand out if you decided to hire a ventriloquist. It might seem like an unconventional choice, but the audience will most likely appreciate you trying out something different.
In this case, we think Steve Brogan would be a good fit. He mixes stand-up comedy with ventriloquism and improvisation, all to engage with his audience and make them laugh out loud. Also, he is able to script his shows to include audience participation, so employees will feel included in the performance.
