5 Ways to Wreck the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

They are already putting Christmas stuff out at the stores!

But you still have plenty of time to bring out your inner Grinch...if that's your style.

Here are 5 ways you can destroy your group’s next holiday party.

1. Don’t even schedule a holiday party!

2. Throw a low-budget event at the last minute. Nothing says “I value you” like microwaved mini-hotdogs and Gatorade set out on the front desk at 3 pm Christmas Eve.

3. If you invest in a party, do NOT hire special entertainment. Let Larry-the-funny-guy-from-accounting perform at the dinner party. With classic material like:

Q: Why was Santa’s little helper depressed?
A: Because he had low elf esteem.

Zzzzzzzzz. Or better yet, bring in a raunchy, offensive comedian. Who wants to feel good at this time of year?

4. Turn the annual gift exchange into a gripe exchange. Pull names out of a hat and tell that person one thing you really hate about them.

5. Give pink slips instead of greeting cards! Guaranteed no one will want to plan any office festivities. Cha ching!

Or . . .

Bring out the best in your people
and give them the gift of laughter! A hilarious, morale-boosting entertainer or master of ceremonies from Clean Comedians can cap off your year in a way that makes everybody feel good. Contact us now to get your date on the calendar.

5 Tips for Staying on Time at Your Next Event

Keeping your program tight and on schedule can be the difference between an event that is good and one that is great. When you start on time, and end on time, you tell your guests they are valued.

5 Tips for Staying on Time at Your Next Event

hand-clock-for-events

1. Create a Time Budget
When planning an event you carefully budget your money, allotting just the right amount to food, awards, décor, speakers, and entertainment. You also need to budget your program time. Before any of your attendees walk in the door, answer these questions:

•  What time do we want our guests to arrive?
•  How long will each segment of the program run and what is our total run time?
•  What time will we say “Goodnight” and dismiss our attendees?

2.  Serve Food Faster
One of the biggest areas of time overruns—especially for a dinner program—is the food service. If your event is held in a hotel ballroom and you are serving a plated dinner, you can almost always count on your program running about 30 minutes late.
Solution: Consider offering your guests a delicious buffet instead.

Your attendees will:
•  Appreciate having control of what and how much they eat.
•  Be happy they are eating sooner rather than later.
•  Be more focused on your platform presentations.

3. Keep the Speeches Short!
Abraham Lincoln gave one of the greatest speeches in history, the “Gettysburg Address,” in about two minutes.  It’s not easy to tell your VIPs to keep their messages tight. Harder still to enforce it. Do it anyway. You will make them look good, and leave your group eager for more.

Also:
•  Remember that a TED Talk lasts only 18 minutes.  It is long enough for your speaker to feel important, but short enough to hold your group’s attention.
•  Cut Power Point presentations whenever possible. Your audience wants fewer charts and more heart.
•  Have no more than one “keynote speaker” and limit the number of VIPs who will take the stage. Keep their presentations super tight and within their slotted time.

4. Hire a Professional Emcee to Keep Things Moving
The Academy Awards, and TV shows like The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, make use of dynamic hosts. A good emcee can make your event a hit.

Make sure you:
•  Hire a professional Master of Ceremonies. Just because Charlie in HR is a crack-up it doesn’t mean he has the experience to connect with a large group, or seamlessly handle transitions and introductions.
•   Work with a likable and funny host. A gifted emcee can be an entertaining component of your program and keep your attendees attentive and in good spirits. Make surehis/her humor is positive and friendly, not mean-spirited or inappropriate.
•   Provide the Master of Ceremonies with your event outline, special announcements, and (short) speaker introductions several weeks before your program. This will give your host time to tailor his/her material to your event’s theme and your group’s culture.

5.  Become a Time Keeper
Bob Westfall is a super successful event producer. In the last 10 years his company, The Westfall Group, has helped non-profit organizations generate over $450 million dollars via live events. Westfall has lovingly been called a “Time Dictator.” He understands that when you honor an attendees’ time, her impression of your organization is enhanced.

To ensure your program stays on track and on time:
•  Position one or two countdown clocks where your speakers can see them, but your guests cannot. Point out these clocks to your Master of Ceremonies and speakers, and make it clear: they need to wrap it up before their time elapses.
•  Agree on a fail-safe signal should a presenter go over their allotted time. This signal will remind the speaker that they are over their time limit and need to finish immediately. Empower your Emcee to tactfully encourage a speaker to conclude their talk.
•  Meet with your presenters before the program starts and review the running order of the program. Make sure each presenter knows when he/she is “on deck” and have him/her ready to take the stage.

It can take months to plan the perfect event, but the most critical moments of any meeting begin when your guests arrive, and end when your guests depart. Plan and protect the time in between carefully to ensure your event will be a huge success.

For Here or To Go?

I love to drive the cashier crazy when I go to a fast food restaurant. After I order, when she says, "For here or to go?", I say, "To go here." The chaos that ensues is priceless.

When it comes to hilarious entertainment, you really can choose "for here or to go."

FOR HERE: Bring a comedian IN for your group. Contact Clean Comedians to book an incredible entertainer for your event. Just like Kelly Crosby, the Vice President of The Santa Foundation did when she scheduled Keynote Entertainer Greg Bennick for their fundraiser...

greg-bennick-corporate-entertainer

"Greg Bennick delivered! He connected with our audience
and held their interest throughout the show. Our donors laughed,
he made them feel like close friends, they related to his
sense of humor—and gave him a STANDING OVATION!"

TO GO: GO see a great show for a great cause. If you are in Southern California, come join CleanComedians at the Laugh4Life benefit show!

4. PROOF Give examples (stories are best) that demonstrate to your audience that what you are saying will actually work for them. Note: Stories beat powerpoint, but only every time!
