Here are some things to consider when you hire great corporate entertainment. This guide will help you create an event that’s great for your group with great entertainment.
Is it possible for them to be suitable for your group? Sometimes entertainers are not suitable for your group. They may perform blue material, swear or even use violence in their shows. This is your job, so avoid these entertainers.
Sometimes, it is best to keep things clean. Clean entertainers are the best choice for corporate events. A clean entertainer is more popular than one who gets many complaints but has a lot of people hating them. This doesn’t necessarily mean your entertainer should be suitable for children, but they must understand the guidelines in corporate settings and adhere to them.
Are they using good promotional materials? Simple. If a person has professional, clean promotional material it will indicate that they behave professionally. It is not a good idea to hire someone without good promotional material. They will likely not respect your business if they don’t have it.
Is their mental stability? Many professional entertainers can be quite bizarre and it is easy to tell when you speak with them. You should not have a positive feeling about an entertainer. Your entertainer won’t be able to keep their act together for more than 15 minutes. For a phone conversation with you, it’s likely they won’t be able to keep it together on stage.
What do your customers want? Perhaps hiring a magician for your event isn’t the best idea. Maybe your CEO doesn’t like magicians. Perhaps a heavy metal band would not be a good idea because everyone has different musical preferences. It’s important to find entertainment that is enjoyable for everyone and suitable for all ages. I have seen many shows where companies hired entertainers that were not suitable for their audience. The entertainer ends up performing a subpar show, leaving the audience dissatisfied.
Is it easy to work with them? Avoid entertainers who are notorious for being difficult to work with. Do not hire entertainers who don’t know how to behave in a professional setting. A diva is not a good fit for the business world. If they want green M&Ms, hire someone else. These entertainers need to realize that they are there for you, the human resource specialist or event planner.
