There isn’t anything that makes people feel as special as finding out what their unique gifts are at social events. So often we’re at an event where lots of people come together without knowing each other. The only thing they have in common is the person who invited them.
They stand around and try to remember how to make small talk, try to see if there is anything they can do besides try to look cool while balancing a fork, plate, and glass.
We were at a wedding recently where people had flown in from all over the world. Many of them had never met before. Breaking the ice is key. Giving people a common experience, something simple, something engaging, and something that makes them feel engaged and special. We saw people sharing stories about their experiences with long-lost relatives, having deep and long conversations about what they’d just experienced. There are ways of adding entertainment to an event that are like a florist adding baby’s tears to a single red rosebud nosegay–each one sets off the other. See how you can do things differently to engage your friends and guests. Give us and tell us what you want to do and we’ll see how we can help.
