Nearly every major conference or convention hires some sort of corporate entertainment -- professional speakers, industry leaders, authors, commedians, magicians, musicians, coaches, choirs and more -- to draw attendees. And they work.
From motivational speakers to motivational performances, what kinds of corporate entertainment have left an impression on you at one of the conferences you have organized or attended?
- One time at a company sales kickoff, we didn't have enough money left in the budget to hire entertainment for one particular night, so we essembled a band out of current employees and they performed for their peers all night. The attendee's loved seeing the CFO up there playing the guitar and the band members loved playing for their peers. Everyone was dancing all night and had a blast....best of all, it didn't cost a dime!
