Sometimes, just hosting a corporate event at the office can be dull and lifeless, with people not pepped up enough to thoroughly engage with co-workers or clients due to the same stale environment. There are many different ways you can make your corporate gathering a bit more exciting and bring a bit of enjoyment to what would otherwise be a by-the-numbers meeting. Listed below are but a few ideas you can consider when planning your next corporate gathering.
1. Attend a cooking class
Why not get everyone together for a night out where employees and clients can partake in learning how to make some delicious food while being able to discuss work if need be or simply bond with each other? It’s a great way for people to show their creativity and creates a fun vibe for your team. Cooking is an enjoyable activity for all and there are many different cooking classes on offer. It is a rewarding experience and a fun way to thank employees and/or clients.
2. Book an Escape Room
If you’re looking to work on team building then visiting one of the many escape room venues in countries all over the world is a good way to go. The experience of solving puzzles to escape the room will help with collaboration, problem-solving, decision-making, and above all, communication. It is estimated that there are around 50,000 escape room venues around the world, so there will likely be one in your local major city. Venues have different rooms depending on the size of the group and it is common to have teams pitted against each other to see who can exit their room first. A fun way to get the employees together while learning or brushing up on some important skills.
3. Book a venue at the horse racing track
Horse racing is popular all around the world and what better way to meet clients or get to know fellow employees better than to host a corporate gathering at a major horse racing event. If you are in Melbourne for example, then you might know that the Melbourne Spring Cup Carnival is fast approaching and is one of the biggest horse racing events in the world. There are plenty of venues at Flemington Racecourse that can be booked for private or corporate events, and it means you can not only talk business but enjoy the races as well. You can discuss the Victoria Derby odds over some good food and beverages and get to better know your clients and co-workers. Many other horse racing tracks around the world also have venues that can be booked for any number of events be it corporate, birthdays, or anniversaries.
4. Hire a boat
Instead of staying on land why not get everyone out on the water and enjoy the fresh air? There are a plethora of options to choose from, be it a yacht or a charter boat and all different sizes are available depending on the number of people you have. Many boat companies can specifically set up the boat for your function and even hire DJs and organise food and beverages. Not only is a boat charter an impressive display for potential clients, but the experience also offers a different perspective with great views, a refreshing environment, and a relaxed atmosphere.
Step it up for your next corporate event and try something new to impress your clients and colleagues.
