With the holidays clearly underway, the annual corporate Christmas party should be right at your doorstep. However, this type of event is a bit more different than your regular party, because all the directors and the big-shots will be there to interact with you. That being the case, this article sets itself to give some tips and advice that will prove themselves useful on the long run. Also, the tips included here are applicable in many other circumstances as well. The event companies Sydney has to offer will thank you for making their lives much easier!
Firstly, you should not appear at this type of social event and be as quiet and nice as possible. Coming to these events gives you an opportunity to interact with your superiors, network with them, as well as meeting your peers in a different setting than that of work. On the other hand, your corporation works with an event company Sydney based, and you got only one opportunity. Ruin your reputation at a social event of this importance, and you can be sure that you have some new enemies, as well as being on the potential firing list.
With that out of the way, if you plan on drinking too much just to ease up the atmosphere, you should be aware of your ability to drink; if you have a high alcohol tolerance, and are confident with what are you saying, than it should be alright. However, if your colleagues catch you while drinking too much (even though you’re fine, according to your standards), might attract some unwanted views to you. There are countless accounts of event managers Sydney based that have had lots of trouble with drunken party goers. The more serious cases, though, are those where the drunken person harassed the other co-workers. Especially if you’re a female, this thing can be quite a problem. Do that at a corporate event, and you’re sure that your reputation within the company is destroyed.
Also, another common aspect that are quite problematic for the event management company Sydney based is the dress code. Not abiding to the formal dress code, or the one suggested by your event company will dramatically shift the perception of your co-workers on you. Again, women tend to dress in ways that suggest something else is a bit startling for your business partners. After all, we should bear in mind the fact that this event is something that promotes social interaction, on one hand, and on the other, it is a good opportunity to conduct business as well. For example, in Hong Kong, there are no formal “business meetings”, as all the financial transactions are usually done over food or a bottle of beverage.
In the end, I hope that these tips are going to prove themselves useful, both for you, the party goer, as well as your corporate event management company.
