Holding a successful sales meeting is your number one priority. While there are numerous factors that can make or break your sales meeting – from scheduling, presentation, and format – there’s the wildcard option of entertainment that can lift this year’s sales meeting to new heights.
Compelling and interesting entertainment can help gather unfocused attention which can be handy when trying to focus an uninterested or bored audience.
But here’s the key: It’s not just entertainment that makes successful sales meetings – rather it’s the right kind of entertainment.
You may be wondering to yourself, “Entertainment would make for a successful sales meeting and could be a great method to focus my sales team. But what is the right kind of entertainment?”
Fortunately, there are plenty of professional entertainers with specifically tailored acts for corporate sales meetings.
These entertainers, which can range from motivational keynote speakers, to comedians, to professional mentalists, all have time and client-tested acts to entertain and inform your audience.
Different types of acts can serve different purposes. For example, a comedian can ease the tension and lighten the mood in the room. A magician can captivate and perk attendees’ attention. A funny motivational speaker can stir attendees’ energies and refocus them towards achieving their task.
When you’re searching for a professional entertainer to make your meeting a successful one, look at their previous clients list, watch their videos, and read testimonials about their performances. This will give you an idea if their act is a right fit for your group and whether they’re a quality act or they’re just claiming to be.
How do you get in contact with these acts? Call an entertainment booking agency. They work with hundreds of acts nationwide, all of them backed by positive testimonials. They also know what act will fit well with your group, what act will achieve your purpose, and which acts are reputable.

Here’s a great New Year’s Resolution for any parent. Why not give up trying to run your own kid’s parties, and get the experts in for a change? That way you know that everyone, yourself included, is going to have a really fun time. Professional party entertainment is the ideal stress buster for parents. All you have to do is arrange the food, sit back, and enjoy the fact that someone else is being paid to be the centre of attention.
The thing is, very few parents like to be the focus of the attention of a large group of excited children. Come to think of it, very few people full stop like to be the focus of the attention of a large group of excited children. A clown or entertainer, though, is paid to be just that – and he or she has all the tricks in the world up his or her sleeve, to make the experience a fun one. That’s because pro party entertainment has two major things working in its favour: one, the kids don’t know the entertainer personally; and two, the entertainer can do real magic.
When a child knows an adult then he or she sees right through any disguise or costume that adult wears. Kids have a very well developed sense of the absurd. If they see an adult they know prancing around in a silly costume they won’t be entertained – they will just lose all respect for said adult and won’t do anything he or she tells them to do. If, though, a child is confronted with an unknown adult in a clown costume, then the child automatically assumes that this adult is a real clown. Pro party entertainment commands the respect and attention of children from the start, because the children do not know the adult under all the grease paint.
All kids love magic show. A home grown magic show, though, is about the lamest thing on earth. Just as kids are very good at seeing the “real” adult under a clown costume, or a magician’s hat or whatever, when the adult is known to them – so are they excellent at spotting tricks. Only professional entertainment can get tricks past kids and convince them that what they are seeing is really magic. Professional party entertainment works precisely because it is professional: because the quality of the costumes used combines with the skill of the magician to convince the children at a party that something really unusual is going on.
Get a child fascinated and you have won a day full of fun, enthralled kids and no tantrums. The party entertainer does that, guaranteed, every time. That means a whole lot less stress for every parent involved – for whom, usually, a kids party is as much about being afraid that the children will go home over excited and under enthused as anything else. Using professional party entertainment makes sure that never happens – and that means a lot more relaxed adults, which in turn means kids that have a heap of fun at every party they go to.
