The days are beginning to shorten, and though summer has not yet breathed its last, we’re slowly but steadily making our way towards autumn and winter. It’s around this time of year that we begin to think seriously about Christmas - how we’re going to spend it, what we’re going to buy as presents and of course, how we’re going to make the work holiday party a fun one.
It’s a tough line to tread as the organizer, because it’s important to keep so many people happy; often departments who never cross paths on any other occasion and who have very different ideas of what constitutes fun.
MN2S is a talent management agency with all sorts of celebrity guests on the books - which could be just the way to ensure your party goes with a bang. Whether it’s an inspirational and interesting after dinner speaker or a music act to get everyone on their feet and dancing, there’s someone for every occasion.
When it’s a big corporate event for which the company is footing the bill, it’s important to make the important people feel that their money is being well spent and a top notch after dinner speaker could help to do just that, while still ensuring that the event is enjoyable for staff members in attendance too.
A good celebrity speaker can be engaging and interesting, peppering their speech with jokes and funny anecdotes, while still conveying an important corporate message such as the value of teamwork, how perseverance and hard work pays off or simply an inspiring personal story which will encourage employees to work hard.
Someone like Ellie Simmonds, one of Paralympic sport’s most recognizable faces, would be an excellent choice. Not only is she friendly and funny, but she’s also succeeded in the face of almost insurmountable odds, and can talk eloquently about that.
For more relaxed parties, booking a well known musical guest for staff to enjoy could really go down a treat and help them to feel like valued and appreciated members of the team. It’s never going to be possible to satisfy everyone’s musical tastes, of course, but an act with broad appeal will appeal to the largest possible number of people.
KC and the Sunshine Band is a band that’s inoffensive without being bland; their funk, soul and blues sound has influenced everything from modern rock and pop to R’n’B, so fans of all those genres should be able to appreciate their talent and musical significance, as well as enjoying their ear-worm hits.
Both Ellie Simmonds and KC and the Sunshine Band are on the books at MN2S entertainment agency London and can be booked for all sorts of events, Christmas parties included.
