Corporate needn’t be boring. Whether it’s a team away day or a company party, here are our tips on how to shake up your next corporate event, and of course some brilliant venues to choose from.
Sweatworking is a recent innovation in networking event formats, rather than the usual milling around or speed dating style, sweatworking offers a more active approach. Spin classes are a popular choice, allowing people to get to know each other while they peddle. Releasing endorphins is great for your confidence and can help improve mental health, combating stress and anxiety while also improving mood and memory.
2) A Little Competition
A team away day isn’t complete without a little friendly competition and there are so many ways to make it happen, from using huge inflatable obstacle courses, to organising your own primary school sports day, egg and spoon races and all. This means you can tailor the day to your budget too, without compromising on any of the fun.
3) Theme It
Think secret cinema. Why not transform your next company event into an immersive experience, using actors, fancy dress and experiential activities? Choose your favourite film or play, give people their own characters and costume ideas, it’s a great way to get everyone invested in the day and it’s heaps of fun too. Or, choose from a huge range of immersive shared parties at Christmas for a similar vibe, Finsbury Square by Smart Group is one of our favourites.
4) Get Creative
Sometimes all it takes to get those creative juices flowing is a bit of a change of scenery. So, get creative with your venue choice. If you usually go for a similar venue each year then really think outside the box. Transform a warehouse for your next conference, or perhaps choose a quirky space that gets your delegates talking for all the right reasons.
Take advantage of the stage and AV equipment at your next company event and hold a talent contest. It’s a great way for everyone to unwind at the end of the day and allows people to unleash their hidden talents - magician, singer, comedian? It’s your chance to shine.
