When planning either corporate events or corporate entertainment, there are certain elements that you will want to consider in every case, either before deciding your budget or once your budget has been set, if it is out of your hands.

For corporate events involving in-house personnel only, you may want to include some activity-based elements, such as games or team exercises; alternatively you may simply want to give your staff a chance to mingle, swap knowledge and contacts, and get to know each other. For corporate entertainment, again involving in-house personnel and not outside contacts (though you may want to include partners in the invitation – think carefully about the numbers before doing this!), the same options may well apply. In both cases you’ll need to think about time available and how best to use it.

Games such as murder mystery evenings promote a happy, fun atmosphere and convivial associations. Others, such as paintballing or go-karting may do more to encourage team building and individual competitiveness. On the other hand, you may be after a more relaxed event, say with entertainers, dancing and music, as a reward for good work or seasonal event. In this case, you’ll want to consider your demographics and what the various elements of your group might enjoy – consider age as well as sex, and personality types. The last thing you want to do is to make any individual or group feel the entertainment you provide has not been selected with them in mind. Nobody expects everything to be directed at them, but if someone, or some people, feel that they have not been taken into account at all, you will quite possibly end up with a very disgruntled person, or sector, of the company! There are countless entertainers and hosts out there to choose from, so you will be spoilt for choice. You may even find that you simply don’t know where to start.

But you could make your life easier and, instead of trying to shoulder all the responsibility yourself, ask Accolade to help.
