10 Ways to Get Fired Planning Your Company Event!

Posted by Chris Hill on Wednesday, March 10th, 2010 - 12:58 pm

There are many ways to mess up things for the big event, but stress not, if you follow these tips on what not to do, you’ll avoid getting fired and may actually find yourself promoted instead!

1. Forget to plan ahead, so that your venue and guests are booked on your chosen date.

2. Don’t choose a theme or corporate event venue that will appeal to all of your guests, and just do what you’d like to do. Say you’re a big hockey fan, then assume all your guests are, and so they’ll really appreciate your choice of “Hank’s Hockey Haven” for the venue. Don’t learn about your guests so that you choose somewhere inappropriate.

3. Don’t bother sending out invitations that would have mentioned dress code, or instructions about what clients need to bring. Keep them guessin what they’ll be doing during the day and whether overalls at dinner would work.

4. Never combine business with pleasure, and so talk shop all the time. Make sure sure to have a stressful time with your clients, out of the office, and keep trying to sell to them.

5. Treat clients as walking wallets, brag to clients both big and small. If a client isn’t spending a lot with you at the minute, means that they won’t, and the opposite is also true.

6. Let your guests worry about themselves, and spend all day with your staff, or your most important clients, or your friends. Try not to introduce clients to each other and see if they can do business together as well? DO NOT mingle and make sure that you end up talking to the same people all day.

7. Push hard to impress your clients, even if you have to go overboard. There’s a huge difference between putting on a fantastic corporate event, and being too lavish. Don’t worry if your guests think that you’re charging too much for your products and services. Spend a fortune to entertain your clients, and they’ll all be impressed when you start talking about money and showing off.

8. Assume everything is taken care of by the venue, like drinks and refreshments are included. If guests to have to pay for their drinks or meals, sobeit. Is car parking included? Will you have exclusive use of the room or venue? These are questions best not aksed.

9. If you don’t want your corporate hospitality event to be a fun day out for all concerned, then forget about having experts plan the event? If you plan it like above, then you can thrive off stress and fretting about instead of spending time with guests; you’ll be worrying about everything.

10. It’s important to focus on the cost of your corporate event rather than thoughtfull planning. You’ll want your clients to remember the day for a bizarre location, awful food, and obnoxious company.

Implement the above plan and you’ll be sure to be umemployed the next day – trust Slixer Entertainment to put on your next event, and soon accolades on a job well done will follow instead.
