Unique insights based on unique experiences from Allan Heyl, the only survivor of the notorious so-called Stander gang!

”DARE TO DREAM THE IMPOSSIBLE”
Share with Allan the profound lessons he learned on his incredible journey down a slippery slope of moral deprivation that culminated in him serving more than 27 years in prison both here in South Africa and the U.K. for a string of bank heists and a prison escape and from which, realistically, he should never have emerged.

Getting the ideal venue for your corporate event (be it a year end function, annual awards ceremony, conference, training session or even a business meeting) – and sorting out the related issues – is not easy and there are various things that you need to contemplate when searching for the right venue.
While you can arrange the event and search for the venue yourself, it may be more beneficial to employ the services of a corporate event management company or corporate planner. There is no doubt that the right venue can compliment a corporate event, but it can also play a big part in making the event a success. The prefect venue will portray your company, staff and its delegates in the right light, making you even more appealing to existing and potential customers and clients.
The first thing you need to consider, which is probably the most obvious, is the number of people you anticipate will attend your corporate event. You need to find a corporate venue that is the right size, that will fit everything and everyone, but you also don’t want it so big that there is too much space for your guests and any event furniture, exhibition stalls.
The type of event will also have a bearing on your choice of event venue. If it’s a corporate dinner then you will want a venue that caters for that, while an exhibition will require a venue more suited to that, like an exhibition hall. Perhaps it is your company’s year end event and you require it to have a dance floor, or perhaps even a conference that requires projectors and screens.
Availability of a venue may also be a challenge. Just because you have found the right location to host your corporate event does not mean that it will be available on your chosen dates. With corporate event planning usually running on very tight schedules it helps to find two or three venues that suit your needs well in advance. This will, hopefully, ensure at least one is available for the date or dates you have in mind.
Perhaps also two or three possible dates, to be safe.
In addition to the venue itself you will need to think about accommodation and transport for your delegates. You can find reliable service providers for these on Event Source directory. This is why the location of your venue should play a very big part in your decision making. You don’t want a venue too far away from transport links like close to the gautrain station, airport or even public transport routes, for those using public transport. Geographically isolated venues will make it difficult for delegates to attend – in fact, they may decide not to attend at all. You should also offer some sort of transfer from the nearest large transport link to your venue for those who travel in via public transport. Making them pay a potentially expensive taxi fare will not be appealing!
Suitable accommodation in the form of hotels should also be close to the venue. After a long day of networking there will be some people who don’t want to travel long distances home – or to the nearest hotel!
Again, transfers should be on hand to take those who require it to their nearest accommodation. It would serve you well to get a list of those who wish to stay over when they book their place at your event and then make reservations on their behalf. The cost of this could be factored into the delegate fees if you don’t want to pay for it yourself. As discussed, you could attempt to arrange all this yourself, saving you the cost of a corporate event planner.
However, there are some significant advantages to using a corporate event management company aside from simple time saving. Firstly, and especially if you choose a company in the local area, they will have a much greater knowledge than you of local venues and a greater insight into which would suit your event best. Secondly, as regular ‘customers’ of the venues, they may well be able to obtain a discount on your behalf. The same goes for any accommodation and transport you need to book on behalf of your delegates. Finally, their experience will be invaluable in assisting with other aspects of your event.
Training in a Joyous & Relaxed Atmosphere:
Training sessions and Business meetings are normally conducted in a highly charged atmosphere which puts pressure on the already under-pressure participant. Hence, the first thing a that funny motivational speaker does when conducting a workshop is: creating a relaxed atmosphere. He starts off with a funny joke or incident that will instantly melt down any stress that the participants might be having.
So, a funny motivational speaker sets the tone for a fun filled training session. He is usually the expert in creating a friendly and pleasant training atmosphere.
Humor Helps in making Training process Effective:
Training sessions are often dull and boring if not combined with healthy humor. The participants either do not pay much attention or are eagerly waiting for the lunch or coffee break. However, a funny motivational speaker promptly attracts the individual’s undivided attention of the participants through the use of humor, because normally people do not want to miss a good joke and the opportunity to laugh. Instead of drifting away or stifling yawns, participants pay attention to what a funny motivational speaker is saying. They instantly get interested and involved in the training process, eagerly waiting for the next humorous anecdote or story.
Promotes Scope for Openness:
The funny motivational speaker wins the confidence of the audience because of his unobtrusive and easy manner of training. He respects the professional trainees for their capabilities and yet seeks permission for their improvement and involvement. Training becomes easier as the participants in the training session come forward to express their problems and shortcomings to an uncritical mentor, thus giving him enough scope to motivate them in the right direction and help remove their shortcomings.
Funny motivational speakers are a rare breed of people that combine the power of speaking and a little acting to make listeners laugh as well as drive pertinent points regarding motivation.
They inspire the audience with their wisdom and insight. Human psychology, information about the latest trends, and traditional wisdom – they combine these all to provide potent motivational and morale boosters.
Improving the Bottom Line Profits:
Yes, hiring a funny motivational speaker can improve the bottom line profits. Corporates invests millions of rands in training as training is effective in improving the bottom line profits.
And if training succeeds in improving bottom line profit of a company, the safest bet is to hire a funny motivational speaker, for laughter is the best medicine including corporate ailments.
