There are a few things you should consider when hiring great corporate entertainment. Use this guide to create a great event with great entertainment that is right for your group.
Are they suitable for your group? Sometimes entertainers will not be suitable for your group, they will do blue material, swear, and may even have violence in their show. These entertainers should be avoided simply because it’s your job on the line.
Sometimes keeping it clean is the best policy. You should look for clean entertainers for your corporate event. Having a clean entertainer that gets no complaints is often better than having a dirty entertainer that many people enjoy but gets complaints from a few. I don’t mean that your entertainer needs to be for little kids, but they should understand what is suitable in a corporate work environment and follow those guidelines.
Do they have good promotional material? It’s simple if a person has professional clean promotional material, that will mean that they generally behave in a professional manner. You don’t want to hire someone who does not have good promotional material, simply for the fact if they don’t respect their own business, chances are they will not respect your show.
Are they mentally stable? A lot of professional entertainers are just plain weird and you can tell that when you talk to them. If you don’t get a good feeling about your entertainer, generally, that means that you should hire someone else. If your entertainer can’t keep it together for 15 min. for a phone call with you, chances are they’re not can keep it together for their performance on stage.
What does your audience want? Maybe hiring a magician isn’t a good idea for your event, maybe your CEO doesn’t like magicians. Maybe having a heavy metal band isn’t a good idea either because everyone has different choices in their musical tastes. You should find entertainment that everyone can enjoy that’s suitable for your guests. I’ve been to a lot of shows where a company has hired someone that their guests just did not want to see. This always ends with the entertainer doing a subpar show and audience feeling dissatisfied.
Are they easy to work with? Many entertainers have a reputation for being extremely difficult to work with these entertainer should be avoided. If they don’t know how to act in a professional businessman or just do not hire them. Being a diva has no place in the business world, if they are a diva who wants green M&Ms hire their competition. these entertainers seriously need to understand they are there to serve you the human resources specialist or event planner.
I hope these tips have helped you understand the corporate entertainment world better. Use them to plan your event in the future and have a great corporate entertainment.
