Virtual meetings have taken the workplace by storm after the onset of Covid-19, but that doesn’t mean they have to be bland. In fact, Virtual meetings can serve as a robust platform to engage your audience and entertain attendees. So what’s the secret? A mix of time management, mindfulness, and added entertainment pieces to provide your audience with the opportunity to connect on deeper levels.
Cocktail hours provide a fun and interactive opportunity to engage attendees. Virtual cocktail hours can be as simple as BYOB, but we recommend leveling-up your next meeting by having a mixologist lead your virtual team on a cocktail-creating adventure (which we have to admit, are pretty rad).
Start with finding a mixologist or designating a leader on your team to lead the cocktail creation, send your team members boxes with all of the ingredients needed to make a spectacular cocktail (or two) and when it comes time for your virtual meeting, you can be sure your attendees will be looking forward to it! P.S. You can always include non alcoholic versions for your meetings to provide a tasty non-alcoholic alternative for your attendees!
Looking to engage your guests in a competitive way? Think about adding a virtual trivia/game show host for an added level of interaction. Divide your attendees into teams or operate on an every-man-for-himself model and compete against one another while bringing some of your favorite in person games to life in the virtual world.
While you can facilitate these events internally, you can always elevate your attendees' experience by hiring a host to facilitate so everyone gets to participate. The best part? Your games can be customizable to your organization or event. Think about doing a company facts trivia or getting personal with team-member trivia for enhanced team building opportunities.
We’re the first to tell you that music and entertainment are some of our favorite ways to connect with an audience. Think about kicking off your event with a local artist or band to give your attendees a chance to enjoy the experience together. Wanna take it up another notch? Grab your microphones and invite your attendees to attend a virtual karaoke. This may seem cheesy, but there’s no better way to break down barriers and have a good time than good old fashioned karaoke. Music has the power to connect people and can set the mood for an entire event, virtual or live!
