Corporate events are an important part of your business calendar. They allow many people from the same company or field of work to meet and interact. However, it is crucial that events like these have the right entertainment. This will create the social atmosphere required for everyone to relax and enjoy themselves. Some of the best mediums of entertainment in corporate events involve music, comedy shows, close-up magic, and mind-reading.
Magic is a universally loved form of entertainment. Music taste can be very personal, with everyone preferring different genres. Similarly, comedy can divide an audience – what is hilarious to one person may be highly offensive to the next. Magic, however, has a unique appeal that will intrigue and capture the imaginations of everyone. Magic is equally appealing to people of all ages, genders, cultures, and more. Booking a corporate magic show for your event is an excellent way to ease any tension and keep your guests entertained.
Organizing corporate events can be very tough. Balancing the need for fun with the formal and professional atmosphere of corporate meetings is challenging, to say the least. Unlike private parties, where elements are organized according to the tastes of a particular group, corporate events require entertainment that is not too flashy and within everyone’s taste.
The overall goal of most corporate events is to get everyone in the company together in a friendly and light-hearted environment to socialise. It is a great way for you and your staff to get to know each other even further, and an excellent team-building opportunity.
However, you can’t achieve that with only fancy speeches and good food. You need to arrange entertainment that everyone can enjoy together. Laughing and cheering together is the best way for people to create deep and lasting bonds.
These moments of happiness will also positively impact your company. These events can help boost employee morale. They will be more appreciative of their position in your company and feel like a welcome member of a big, happy family.
The relationships your employees will build during these fun activities in your corporate event will increase teamwork in the workplace. An entertaining corporate event will also increase brand reputation and attract more talent to your company.
But most importantly, corporate event entertainment is a great opportunity for you to get to know your staff on a more personal level. This allows you the chance to form relationships that go beyond boss, manager or colleagues. Forming a positive personal relationship with your staff members will make them feel increasingly invested in your company. They will see you as more than just the reason that they get their paycheck at the end of each month.
A walkabout magician can act as an ice breaker who makes corporate events more fun for everyone. Having a source of entertainment that involves audience participation is also a fantastic way of getting people invested in the event.
Here are a few reasons why a magician and mind-reader for your corporate event is the perfect solution to all your event organizing problems.
The last thing you want in a corporate event is uncomfortable silence and superficial conversations. In a setting that is formal and high stakes, it can be difficult to be yourself and interact with other people. A close-up corporate magic show counters this problem by providing people with something to focus on and bring up in conversations.
Finding topics to discuss in formal settings can be stress-inducing. Only talking about work can make you seem like a bore. Simultaneously, talking about things that are too personal can make you seem unprofessional. Finding a topic that is both interesting and appropriate can be nerve-wracking for those attending the event.
Close-up magic resolves this problem – and breaks the ice – by creating a shared experience that is a great conversation starter.
While entertainment is a crucial part of any good corporate event, not all forms of entertainment are appropriate. It is important to remember that though this is an event, it is not by any means a party. Maintaining professionalism is of the utmost importance. The entertainment hired for these events should reflect these sentiments.
Corporate magic shows are a little bit of harmless fun that is simultaneously entertaining and appropriate for the workplace. A walkabout magician for your corporate event will allow the attendants to enjoy themselves without feeling uncomfortable.
For more introverted employees, corporate events can sometimes feel a little tense. Being around many people in an unfamiliar location can make it difficult to let go and enjoy the event. Corporate magic shows offer a welcome distraction from the busy environment and allow people to finally get comfortable. It is only after everyone is comfortable and relaxed that a corporate event can serve its true purpose: creating conversation and networking opportunities for people working in the same field.
Corporate magic shows can act as a catalyst that accelerates the pace of the event. The suspense and adrenaline from watching magic will affect everyone watching. After the excitement is over, people feel relaxed. They are no longer agonising about what they should or should not say, so making conversation is much easier.
Close-up magic and mind-reading often requires participants from the audience. If you’ve seen even one magic show in your life, I’m sure you understand what we are talking about. The audience participation element focuses the audience’s attention on a particular face. As a result, these participants become recognizable characters in your company.
How does this increase workplace interactions? Social interactions work in chains. If many people have mutual connections within the company, they may also end up in other social situations where they get to know each other as well.
So, if a corporate event is like a chemical reaction for forming relations, a corporate magic show might just be the catalyst your company needs for everyone to interact with each other.
Another goal of corporate events is to boost team morale and strengthen bonds between coworkers. After all, a workplace is only as strong as its relationships between and within teams. For companies to succeed, coworkers must get to know each other and form strong bonds.
Awkward conversations at corporate events can only add to this problem by making coworkers feel uncomfortable with one another. This can ruin the efficiency with which a corporation works. A corporate magic show can offer a solution to this problem by making the event feel lighthearted and fun so that coworkers can bond with one another through shared experiences.
Corporate events are an important part of any company’s calendar – they allow people from the same company to get together and interact with one another outside of a working environment. If the events organized by a corporation are dull, it can discourage people from coming to the next one. This can influence other people to follow suit.
Hiring a magician and mind-reader for your corporate event ensures that the crowd is always entertained. Once people come to enjoy corporate events, they will be more than happy to return and participate again.
