There is simply no point having the word ‘creative’ in your company name and not putting it into action when a client requires something completely new and bespoke! One of our aims is to be an ideas factory for our clients. Clients call or email us with an objective, a brief or a conference theme and want to hear what we can add to their own thoughts to inspire their participants.
There is always a special buzz in the office when this type of enquiry comes in. We gather round, fire ideas to each other and filter out what is practical, relevant and unique. Watching an off-the-wall comment growing into a practical option, and then a real event, is very exciting and satisfying!
We have our extensive range of in-house artists, trainers and facilitators, as well as our trusted external suppliers, to cover almost any situation – from simple to complex. Here are just some examples of bespoke corporate team events we have been involved in.
Two weeks ago, a last-minute client asked if, in addition to providing a One Voice team building singing event in the day, we could also provide a fun tabletop challenge over dinner. Very quickly, we had to create a series of interactive table tasks as part of a huge competition for 270 people! We incorporated cake decoration and portrait painting and had an incredible Street Moves table-to-table dancing competition.
Just last week, I sat at the top table of a senior partners’ dinner, billed as the guest speaker. All night long, I fended off questions about my role in the organization when in fact I was an imposter! The minute I started my speech, we sprang our Crashing Waiters on the unsuspecting diners. The recent dinner guests that I’d just met just shook their heads in disbelief at the transformation.
To highlight the conference theme of ‘combining the old with the new’, we delivered a ‘Matrix’ drumming event. Emerging from the dry ice and revolving stage set, our drumming event team appeared in long leather coats and sunglasses, while the strobe lights flashed. They then proceeded to blend electronic drums with traditional drums.
One of the strangest requests we have received was to somehow teach a conference audience every possible sound a bicycle could make and then perform these live in perfect synchronisation with a cycling film that had been specially commissioned.
You can, of course, have ideas all day long but they have work! We never forget that we are trusted with budgets and the responsibility to ensure that events flow perfectly on the day. It is our job to take unique concepts and ideas and make them real. As ever, this is only successfully achieved through the skill of facilitators, artists and instructors.
So, please talk to us about your wild and wacky thoughts and ideas for your next corporate event and give us the opportunity to create some unforgettable moments for your company.
