Would the entertainment at your Corporate Event win an Academy Award?

Posted on: March 4th, 2014 by Dan Hixon

When you think about the investment in Live Entertainment for your next meeting or company event, what makes it a justified expense?

First of all, many people in this economic atmosphere, don’t have the expendable income to hire professional Entertainers anymore. Experiencing live Entertainment is exciting & unique. If you’re hosting an event, certainly one of your goals is to motivate your guests & what better way, than to treat them to something they don’t get to experience at home.

Our company is located in Chicago, a world class city. It has so much to offer visitors, if you get out to explore, However, it can be intimidating, if you’re not used to navigating in a large urban environment. One way you can help the less adventurous, is to bring the entertainment to your guests. Great music is a hallmark of our city & your people don’t have to leave the safety of the hotel to enjoy it. It can also help to give a sampling of the variety of what the city has to offer.

Everyone wants & needs to motivate. The scale on which this can be accomplished from an Entertainment standpoint, goes from the simple to the grandiose. As with everything, it begins with budget. When you seek out the professional services of our company, we have the ability to analyze how best to spend those dollars, after determining all the needs of your particular group & event.

Can you count on an Award Winning Event? I think we can help make it memorable, fun & effective.

Speaking of Speakers

Posted on: January 31st, 2014 by Dan Hixon

Clients ask us about having a Speaker at a Corporate Event. Are they effective? Certainly, the right Personality can motivate, inspire & entertain, which is the goal of anyone planning a Special Event. Over the years, we’ve provided Politicians, such as Ronald Reagan, John Anderson, Gerald Ford & Bill Clinton; we’ve booked Journalists, Astronauts & Athletes. & of course, lots of Entertainers. Each one has had an impact of their own, but there are a few elements that we have learned are important, when deciding who you would like to invest in, for your event.

What do you want to accomplish? Do you want to entertain or inspire? Believe it or not, there are people that accomplish both, extremely well. Do you want someone who will interact with your people, shake hands & give you personal contact. Many celebrities are very shy or private & will not do any meet/greet. Your Production Company should know this & advise you.

Does the personality you’re interested in do this all the time? Many Celebrities are skilled in one area only & do not regularly do Speaking Engagements. You may like them on the screen, television or the field, but they might have no experience or skill at speaking. It’s very important to get good advise on this as well.

A final extremely important element in maximizing your experience, is the production aspects. Your Keynote Speaker needs to be presented properly, with the best possible staging, lighting & media support. When hosting in a major metropolitan area such as Chicago, you can take advantage of local “talent” & local Production Companies that have experience with this talent. Their recommendations go a long way in guiding you to the best personality & value, as well as coordinating production & labor.

All these things combine to creating a larger than life experience. Supported with the right production, you will create an incredible amount of excitement & wow your participants!
