The idea of corporate events, work parties of team building exercises often fills those expected to participate with an impending sense of doom and leaves most people wanting to run for the hills. From event organisers to participants, the traditional work event has, in the past, been a source of terror. But those days are gone! In today’s corporate environment, companies are trying to build morale, incentivise their staff and wow clients and suppliers. The general standard of office events has risen considerably with those in charge pushing the envelope more and more. The challenge of pulling off a professional and well run event under budget constraints has lead to some very creative ideas for corporate parties.
Here are the first five of our favourites:
1) Hire a comedian or magician
This is a great way to break the ice. If you are welcoming a new team or just trying to get existing employees to break down barriers and integrate better.
2) Talent Show
A talent show is always a winner! Your employees get to really move out of their office personas and get creative. A talent show is great way for people to play to their strengths too.
3) Masquerade Ball
If you are looking to throw an upmarket party for your clients or employees you simply can’t go wrong with a Masquerade ball. There is a sense of pomp and ceremony that really elevates the evening. If you want to create a sense of drama and occasion you should contact us about our various stretch tent hire options. We can set the perfect scene for the evening, and can even assist with lighting and decor.
4) The Circus
This is another theme that is perfectly suited to tented setting. What better way to create a memorable occasion than setting up a big top and entertaining your employees. This is a great theme, and also lends itself to fancy dress. This is a great way for colleagues to get to know each other as they get creative about how to express themselves.
5) Braai Competition
Nothing bring South Africans together more than a braai. It’s a great way to relax and let your hair down. But don’t forget this is a work event, so we have put a little spin on the traditional braai, and have added a little bit of healthy competition. This is a great team building exercise. Split your employees into teams and throw your own championship braaing competition.
Whatever theme you go with, Tentickle is on hand to assist. We can set up for indoor, outdoor, all weather events. Contact one of our team to discuss your corporate events today.
