Hiring a corporate entertainer?

There’s a lot to think about. After all, you want the best possible entertainer to ensure your guests stay engaged, focused, and happy with the entertainment, but it can be tough to decide if you’re going to get that by just simply reading a website. Before you sign any contracts, you may want to take the following tips into account.

One of the first things you should do before you select the right corporate entertainer to meet your needs is take a look at a few different videos. Many corporate entertainers post videos on their sites or on sites like YouTube so people can get a feel for their style and what they’re capable of. These videos are a great way to see if an entertainer’s style is going to meet your needs.

Second, and you may want to do this while you’re actually watching the video, make certain the entertainer you’re thinking about hiring actually has some experience in the corporate setting. A comedian, for example, may be hilarious in a night club, but can they hack it in front of your staff members and still keep things funny?

Finally, make certain the entertainer you’re considering can offer you a personalized show.

You want someone who can literally customize the show to meet your needs, adding in special keywords or even the names of staff members to help your guests truly connect with the event. The last thing you want at your next event is generic entertainment your guests could see by sitting at home in front of the television. Selecting someone who will customize the show just for you ensures that you get a one-of-a-kind show your guests simply can’t see anywhere else.

As you work through your list of potential entertainers, make certain they offer a no obligation consultation call to help you determine if they’re the act to meet your needs. Don’t sign a contract until you've actually spoken with your potential act!
