It is human nature for people not to interact when thrust into a large group like a corporate event. If you cannot instantly associate with things, people, or environment that make you feel safe and comfortable, your internal mood level is compromised, and an uneasy feeling sets in.
Our DNA is to blame for this feeling. Our ancestors’ survival was all about safety. Failure to connect with a group meant danger and the need to flee, and we learned to avoid a hungry dinosaur feeding by making a connection with the group.
Centuries later we are still doing this. We arrive at a company event, and we instantly become watchers as we must better understand our environment before interacting. We all have done it; we arrived at a party, and the first thing we do is check it out and look for people we know. We are satisfying the basic human need of feeling safe.
Creating an Interaction and Reducing Fear
This is where I come into the story. My job is to transform this human fear/flight reaction and create an environment where people are at ease and want to interact. The primal fear changes to relationship building and emotion levels subside and move from safety to fun.
Now you might be wondering, how can I accomplish this internal transformation in my guests? Over decades of entertaining, I have seen business professionals inner child emerge as they laugh, wonder, and are amazed as I twist a balloon figure. A human mind is a puzzle-solving machine, and when you mix in social interaction, creativity, and the ability to see something being creating instantly before your eyes, it evokes curiosity and conversation, leading to social communication.
Now in a state of relaxation, emotions turn to fun and sharing. Cell phones come out, share buttons pressed, and the world is seeing your corporate event on social media.
What once was a scary corporate event, now turns into a party that they want to share with their friends around the world.
