Costumed Character Entertainment

 

Corporate social gatherings are staple in every business or industry. It is when important matters related to the trade are discussed such as in conferences and summits. The attendees of these business gatherings are employees of the company or corporation plus other stock holders or potential business partners for a possible collaboration. And where there are gatherings, big or small, there should be foods and drinks available for all participants. These provisions are served and supplied by particular catering services which are equipped to host such commercial events.

How to Host an Unforgettable Company Event

Careful and strategic planning is of the essence in hosting a company event. Hosting a simple domestic party is already a strenuous job, much more when holding a business gathering as there are a lot of professionals and business executives who might grace the special corporate event. There are a lot of things to be prepared such as the venue and the catering services. First and foremost the organizer should consider what effect the affair should have or what theme is applicable for the day's purpose. This is important in order to provide an atmosphere for the attendees that are conducive and perfect for socialization and business entrepreneurship. After determining this, the location or the venue where the event will take place can be selected. The place must be perfect enough to accommodate the number of expected guests. It should also be a place that conforms to the ambiance the organizer wishes to provide the event's participants. Aside from these, the place of the gathering must, with all possibilities, be situated in an area that is accessible to all employees and guests of the gathering. The seating arrangement is also one to include in the planning.

Another consideration essential to the event's planning is the budget. The organizer must include in the budget not only the venue or the chairs to be seated on by the attendees but also the food provision and catering services for the conference.

The Best caterer for the Corporate Event

While it is true that catering services are abundant in number these days, not all are capable of hosting a formal dining experience. Some caterers are only adept at cooking delectable dishes while there are also those catering services which can offer an excellent service complete with awesome cuisines, themed arrangement and excellent professional services. Such catering services are required for the business conferences.

The selected provider must be able to interpret what the event organizer requires and apply this. Caterers who can prepare various dishes to suit whatever palates and gastronomy of any provenance, culture and religion may also be hired as there will be diverse people of different backgrounds attending the corporate meeting. The catering services suited for a corporate occasion must be flexible, capable of multitasking and most of all, serve the most delectable and freshest dishes to everyone in the conference. If this caterer can think of a more ingenious and clever concepts suited to the event, the better.

Phone Skills That Book More Events

I got this question from a new marketing client of mine who founded of a new catering and event company after years of working for someone else.


I'm finally getting leads from the website! This week I got more job inquiries than I ever did before. Now my problem is selling them once they call me. How do you handle an incoming call from a prospective client who is thinking about hiring you? Thanks, L.T.   Here are a few tips I passed on to L.T. He reported back that he's much more relaxed and so far he's booked a $9,000 job using these ideas. I hope you have the same luck!

First and foremost you want to build rapport quickly. You want the caller to get a good feeling about you and your business. No, this isn't about "brown-nosing" or "sucking up" or "schmoozing." It's about attitude.

Some thoughts to consider before you pick up that phone ....

Attitude of Gratitude. Be happy that somebody is giving you the opportunity to serve them in a way that allows you to use your gifts and talents and make a profit. Don't act grateful ... BE grateful.

Attitude of Service. Be ready to help the caller in whatever way you can - even if that means sending the caller to your competition.

Attitude of Enthusiasm. When I coached L.T. we recorded some of his phone conversations (you can record your side of the call without getting permission) and he was shocked. He was trying to sound like a "business professional." He sounded as enthusiastic as a Department of Motor Vehicles employee on a Friday afternoon.

Unless you only cater at funerals and bankruptcy hearings most customers are enthusiastic about the event they're planning. They want to deal with a relaxed, confident and happy event professional.

The Most Important Person in the World.

Dale Carnegie taught us to "Make other people feel important - and do it sincerely." How do you do that? Ask questions that you really want the answers to and listen carefully to the answers. When was the last time you spoke to someone who really cared about your opinion? Didn't that make you feel great? Really try to understand what the client is saying - so few people do.

Care. Don't ask about a client's fishing trophy if you really don't care. That's cheap, insincere and transparent. My style of selling is strictly business - I don't talk about sports, the weather or how nice your tie is. When I meet you as a prospective client I always get right down to business - not my business - your business.

Prepare. I go into every meeting prepared - I don't ask questions that a professional should already know. If I'm trying to get a trade show account I know everything I can about the industry, the company, competition and their latest products. If I'm pursuing a sales incentive meeting I know the names and territories of the Sales Managers, the size of the sales force and the demographics of the attendees before I approach the buyer. Knowing what you're talking about goes much further than unctuous glad-handing.

How do you prepare for an unexpected telephone inquiry? Stop winging it!

Intake Form. Type up an intake form to capture all the information you'll need ... and include questions that your competition isn't asking.

High Value Questions. Make a list of smart questions that increase your understanding and improve your professional image. List questions that make the client say, "Wow, I'm so glad you asked me that - I didn't think of that!"

Major Sales Tip! Always ask the caller if they've ever hired or experienced a service like yours before. Then ask, "What did you like about it?" and "What didn't you like about it." Get the answers to these two questions and your callers will have told you exactly how to sell to them.

When L.T. asked a client what she didn't like about a previous caterer, the client said she didn't like the servers - they didn't look professional. L.T. emailed over photos and testimonials about of his wait staff . He got the job!

Objections. Start keeping track of all the objections you get on the phone ... and then prepare a presentation that preempts them. The best way to handle an objection is to structure your presentation so that they never become an issue - but be careful about preventing clients from voicing their legitimate concerns.

L.T. thought that by saying to callers, "Our prices aren't cheap - because we don't do cheap work and our clients only want the best," eliminated the price objection. It didn't - it made the caller feel too embarrassed from sharing price concerns - and made L.T. sound like a jerk!

Sales Script. No, you never want to read a sales script to a caller and end up sounding like a phony telemarketer ... but you do want to make sure you give the caller a great sounding presentation.

Here's how to write a great telephone sales script: Don't write it - speak it.

Record and transcribe yourself talking to clients. Listen to your recording with a colleague or coach and pick out the parts you feel do a great job selling your services. Transcribe those phrases - exactly as you spoke them - and create your "pitch." It will sound like you - but your best you!

Social Failures

The typical social event professional (from wedding planners to caterers and photographers to DJ's) struggles to find new clients because they never leverage the power of relationships.

They assume that their customers are not likely to become repeat clients - and after the party's over they fail to keep in touch.

The unsuccessful event pro says, "Why should I waste my time following up with a bride after the wedding is over? It's not like she's going to hire me again any time soon."

It's this type of faulty thinking that causes many event people to fail.

The successful event business owner says, "Of course I keep in touch with my brides! They're not going to get married again soon - but they've got sisters, brothers, cousins, friends and co-workers. When I get referrals I don't have to sell hard and I don't have to deal with price shoppers."

And this applies to corporate event pros even more so!

Referrals are your easiest sales and your best customers. They trust you and they're willing to listen to your advice. They don't want to waste time shopping for price. So, are you getting enough referrals?

Here's a few ways to get more referrals - or should I say "earn more referrals" from your clients.

  1. Amaze Your Clients. If you want to be successful don't give them a good deal for the price, give them a remarkable deal. And then give them the very best personal service in your industry. Being good enough isn't good enough.
  2. Know Your Clients. Where did they grow up? When is there birthday? What college did they attend? What's their biggest passion in life? What's their favorite restaurant? Hobby? Teams? If they're a social event client - what do they do for a living and how can you help them? If they're a business client - what do they do for fun? If you don't ask it shows you don't really care.
  3. Connect. Use social media tools like LinkedIn with every B2B customer. Friend them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter. Get their email addresses. Always.
  4. Find Ways to Serve Them. Don't use Facebook to sell and tell - use it to listen and help. When an old client posts "I have the flu" on Facebook - pick up the phone or send a get well card. They'll be amazed... just don't stalk. That's creepy.
  5. Let Them Know You'd Appreciate New Business. If you always seem overworked - nobody will want to burden you with new clients. Think about it! Let your clients know you want to help there friends.
  6. Don't offer commissions to everyone. Yes- sometimes it helps to offer a percentage - but many times it can insult your client. If they feel you are bribing them - or exploiting their friends they won't want to refer clients to you. Use commissions with other event vendors only.
  7. Tell Them What Kinds of Clients You Want. Don't assume your wedding photography client knows you also do family portraits. Educate your clients about your business.
  8. Expand You Definitions. Are you only an A/V company or are you an event production solution? Or are you a partner in your client's success... above and beyond the event?
  9. Love. That's right. Love and serve your clients to the best of your ability. It will come back to you in a big way.

Growing your event business isn't that hard when you do an amazing job and love your clients. Make sure you're marketing your business in the most effective way. There are many free internet tools that make attracting more event clients easier than ever before.

You've been tasked with planning an event and don't know where to begin. Take a deep breath, anyone with any level of event expertise can take an event from good to great. Here is how:

For beginners, it is imperative that you do your homework. You must first generate an event plan and consider the building blocks of any event: target market, situational analysis, the 6 P's and planning.

Let's get started. Think very clearly about the people you are trying to attract. Ask yourself the question: Who is your target market?

Once you identify those that will be attending your event, allow yourself time to travel into the hearts and minds of your potential audience. Believe me; knowing what kinds of things they like to see, do, buy and eat will be helpful as your event plan begins to come to life.

Now that you have your target market in mind, let's take a look at your situational analysis. You will need to examine your internal strengths and weaknesses and your external opportunities and threats as they relate to whatever you are planning to do. You must be brutally honest with yourself when analyzing the various components of your event.

The next step in taking your event from good to great is to identify the 6 P's of event planning: Purpose, People, Product, Place, Price and Process. Outlined below you will find the questions related to each P that you should answer prior to diving into the planning phase.

- Why are you doing this event? (Purpose)
- Who will attend? (People)
- What are you going to do? (Product)
- When and where? (Place)
- How much is it going to cost you? (Price)
- How are you going to get the job done? (Process)

Now that you have identified your target market, have performed a situational analysis and have answered the building block questions of planning an event, you are ready to develop a formal event plan and begin execution shortly thereafter.

A formal event plan has several interrelated components: goal, objectives, strategies, tactics, budget, timetable and evaluation. Your written detailed plan of action will serve as the backbone to your master event plan. Keep it close at hand and refer back to it often.

Congratulations, at this point you have finished your homework and can now move into the imaginative, fun side of event planning! Take your events to the next level by identifying a theme and carrying that theme from start to finish.

Planning a successful event is no walk in the park. It is tedious work and requires an individual who always keeps their dancing shoes and party hat nearby. One who is forever excited about the adventure and who remembers that problems that will inevitably arise but the beat must go on.

You've got a plan, now the let the event begin. You are on your way from good to great!

In such a case, it is advisable that one hire a good catering service to do the job. There are many catering businesses open in all around, but in order to figure out which one is the best, you need to judge them on the following criteria:

Variety and Quality of Food:

It's needless to say that the food is the most important thing in a party. A good catering service must provide tasty, hygienic and fresh food. Moreover, the caterer should provide variety in the dishes served. It's probable that the people you are going to invite will want to eat food based on their own personal preference as well as religious and cultural values. For example if your friend is a Muslim, he/she will only eat kosher food, whereas a vegetarian will only eat vegetarian food. So, the best way to cater to these possible differences is to have a buffet in which you can incorporate all kinds of dishes, depending upon the types of guests invited. The caterer should also provide the option of offering food from exotic cuisines, so that one can entertain foreign guests as well as local ones.

Variety of Services:

Alongside food, the ambiance of the party also plays an important role in making a party success. A good caterer provides complete decoration for the party and has a team of expert interior designers that add make such an effort professional. Aside from all this, a good caterer also provides the relevant furniture, for example buffet tables, cutlery crockery, warmers, trash bags and other such accessories. This is the differentiating point between mediocre and excellent catering service; if a caterer does all this, then you have definitely made the right choice.

Presenting Style:

Imagine how exciting it would be if the theme of your party is Cowboy, and the waiters are wearing cowboy hats, long boots and a hunter in one hand while they are serving to your guests. This sort of thing is what good caterers offer. Along with good food, excellent catering services do their presentations, food and otherwise, with style.

Economic factors do obviously play an important role in your selection of such a caterer but there is always a payoff between more money and good service in any decision one makes. You can always optimize your party requirements according to your financial condition. However, if you budget is no issue, then a good caterer meeting the above criteria will make your party a huge success, and that's absolutely guaranteed. So, don't forget to look at these things before you plan a party. Cheers!

An outdoor event may be a scary thing for caterers. It requires experience and needs a detailed plan for you to be able to execute it perfectly. Here are some of the important things that caterers should consider if they are already booked for an outdoor event:

  1. Budget. The first important thing to know is the allotted budget of your client. You and your client must establish a realistic budget, so you can provide a food menu that will be sufficient to the number of guests, and let them taste a flavourful food on their table. You have to explain to them the limitations of their budget and what to expect during the outdoor event.
  2. Location. Know the location of the event. This will determine if you can provide an on-sit-down, live station catering, or a buffet type of catering. Knowing the location is important for you to prepare your needed food and equipment ahead of time. It is essential because you need to know how far this location will be to prevent food spoilage and hassle to travel.
  3. Catering Equipment. Make sure to bring sufficient plates, serving dishes, and glassware. This will help you save time and prevent the hassle. As a caterer, it is important to know the available catering equipment in the location of the event. Check if you still need to bring your own fridge or if the event place can let you use their own. If you need to bring your own gas and electric equipment, and other needed catering equipment, it is advisable to contact and hire a one-off event supplier.
  4. Food Safety. Expect that you need to secure the food safety twice the needed security in indoor. This kind of event requires you to be more particular to the right temperatures of your food. Make sure you have enough fridge to keep the cold food and enough ventilation for outside cooking.
  5. Time Plan. It is advisable to create your time plan to manage your schedule properly. This will provide you with a list of things that you need to prepare ahead of time. A time plan is a useful tool for you to make things in order. Write everything you need to accomplish and cross them out when you already completed them. A realistic and detailed plan will lessen your stress and help you manage catering easier.
  6. Staff. Getting the right staff for an outdoor event catering is another thing to prepare. If you think that you have enough full-time staff for your catering, then hire some extra staff. But, make sure that these additional people and staff are trained to do things efficiently. You can make a good impression to your client by showing that you are all professionals in this business.
Hosting an event is challenging since you need to consider a lot of things. But, with these tips, it can be easier.
