Whenever you’re planning a corporate event, it’s important to put audience interaction at the forefront to avoid having people feeling left out.
For this, you want the participants to stay active and engaged throughout the whole day.
Luckily, there are lots of ways to achieve better engagement, so we selected some fantastic entertainment ideas to have fun with your audience as well as get them involved!
1. Share the Stage
Bridge the distance between the speaker and the audience and inject a lighter, more fun aspect to the event.
A simple way of doing this is by hiring a speaker with an entertainment segment as part of the performance.
For example, we can recommend Jon Stetson. He has precisely the type of performance that aims to engage, educate and entertain the audience.
Known as America’s Master Mentalist, Jon blends mystery with a disarming sense of humor. His shows are packed with audience participation and intriguing games of mind-to-mind contact.
2. Experience the Music
While a music concert has been tried and tested before, we recommend something with a little more added salt and pepper.
RePercussion is a band that combines drumming, comedy, and crowd interaction, creating a unique performance that your employee will never forget.
Their show is not just about clapping and singing along. They also invite and even teach people how to play along with them. That’s right, by the end of the show, the audience will be an integral part of the entire sonic experience.
3. Engage with Humor
Having a good laugh triggers the brain’s reward center, producing a cocktail of feel-good chemicals such as serotonin and dopamine. These miracle ingredients hold the power to build deep-seated connections between employees.
But keeping a corporate audience’s good mood can be quite tricky and requires a unique set of skills. So why not leave this undertaking to the professionals?
Glenn Strange has the extensive experience necessary to engage and keep your guests entertained. His act is not just about telling jokes, he incorporates magic, original songs, and he makes sure to transform the audience into the stars of your corporate event.
4. Feel the Rhythm
There’s nothing more interactive and engaging than actively learning something new, especially when it comes to dancing.
And to keep it fun, we recommend working with SALSA MAGIC. This dance group will be able to tailor the energy and visual impact of their shows to your event, all while teaching your employees a couple of moves or two.
It’s suitable even for those with two left feet – their classes are always a hit, never a miss.
5. First to the Finish Line
Shake up the atmosphere by gamifying your corporate event. Introduce a little bit of friendly competition, a scoring system, and a reward, and you’re looking at the prospect of fun and interactive evening.
To achieve this, we suggest trying out the formidable BONK GAME SHOW. It is an interactive event experience that combines a friendly game of knowledge with a comedic twist.
Not only is this a fun way to get employees bonding, but it can also serve as an excellent way to break the ice for new hires. Adding healthy competition into an event can be a great way to increase the audience’s sense of inclusivity.
