Whether hosting a virtual or hybrid event, the main objective remains the same – to get people together and socialize outside of the organization’s structure.
However, it might often be challenging to get people to open up and engage with each other. This is why, in the following article, we have put together a set of creative ideas that will make your corporate event more engaging.
1. The Best Break
It’s advised to schedule a few breaks in between meetings and event sessions, just so that you could give your guests a breather. However, instead of going for the classic break formula, you can go ahead and squeeze in a short mixology class.
If this sounds good, then we can suggest doing something special – a class about coffee.
With a specialized class from Morning Blend, your team can learn the ins-and-outs of brewing some of the finest cups of coffee.
By the end of the session, all your guests will indeed have learned a thing or two – and it will make their morning much more energized.
2. A Motivational Event Opener
Before officially starting the event, you can squeeze in an opening act that features a motivational speaker session. This kind of performance can serve as a keynote for your corporate event to thematically tie everything together and make your event more engaging.
Not to mention that the motivational aspect will heighten everyone’s spirits for the remainder of the event!
While we’re talking about motivation, we’re convinced that Mike Massimino is a keynote speaker who will surely pique your interest. He is a four-time spacewalker on the Hubble Space Telescope servicing missions known for their complexity. Your guests will want to hear his stories.
3. Spice up the event with a Cooking Lesson
Cooking shows are very popular. Your guests most likely have seen a few themselves. For your event, you could bring in a renowned chef to provide entertainment. It would be unexpected, and your guests will surely love the idea.
We suggest Betty Fraser for the task. She is a celebrity chef that rose to fame during the second season of Top Chef.
Betty came into the public’s eye for her energetic attitude and likable personality.
Not to mention that her dishes were out of this world – made more evident by the fact that she has won awards with her recipes.
During your event, Betty will showcase some of her recipes to the viewers, or she can even do a crash course on some easy-to-do and easy-to-follow recipes that the viewers themselves can attempt to make.
4. An Energizing Dance Session is More Engaging
If you want something which will get people on the edge of their seats, we suggest going for a high-energy act.
Specifically, we recommend going for a dance act. They are a great way to entertain your guests and to help them recharge their batteries.
For your next corporate event, you can work with Raul Machorro, a professional dancer, choreographer, and fitness instructor.
We recommend him for his enthusiasm for the craft, his abilities as an instructor, and his affinity to work for in-person and virtual audiences.
5. Start Your Event with Music
Having a music act as an event opener is a tried and tested way to get people excited for the event’s remainder. It helps them get in tune with the event by allowing them to enjoy the moment.
After a good session of enticing music, your guests will be more open to chat and interact. To get the rhythm going, we can suggest hiring a percussion act such as L.E.D.
They are a group of drum musicians who mix energetic drum patterns with light shows for an audio-visual experience unlike any other. We assure you that your guests will have a hard time standing still.
A Corporate Event to Be Remembered
Engaging with your guests is a must for every event. It shows people that the organization values them and, in return, they will express their gratitude.
