I described Dale to co-words like this: “Picture a man with a vibrant, vest asking a million questions a minute about you and your product/service while making any object possible out of latex balloon.  One of the most unbelievable things I have ever seen, noting short of fabulous one-on-one trade show entertainment.”

Dale worked to make our event excellent by spending time before the event researching what we do and working with us to get the most out of his services. He has an extraordinary level of energy which was to bring people into our booth space. I cannot stress enough how many compliments we received and how many attendees ask where he was once he left. Overall Excellent!

Corporate Entertainment Testimonial - LSI InternationalMy “Show Girl” Balloon hat really attracted a crowd and lots of looks. My boss didn’t think I would wear it all day, but after the great response and to just see people smile and laugh, was well worth me wearing it. It was a huge attention getter and at such a large convention in Las Vegas, you need all the help you can get to have people stop at your booth. This “Show Girl” Balloon Hat was great and the  Dale does a fantastic job, very talented & creative. Thanks for making our booth more exciting and a real show stopper.

You were a big smash at your grand opening and people in the office are still talking about your balloon twisting this morning. Everyone loved you, your balloons characters, and your personality was a perfect fit with our group. Your interaction with the customer was awesome.

When I hired “Magical Balloon-dude Dale” I expected to see the typical orange giraffe or pink poodle with he pon-pom tail. I was amazed to see the beautiful “works of art” he created from balloons. The audiences enjoyed chatting with him as he made their personally chosen characters from balloons.

The Picture Perfect Corporate Event

Understand Human Nature at a Corporate Event

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.

Party DNA

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. 

Balloon animal Head-Pulled-Off

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.

Corporate Event Transformation from Scary to Fun

Guests stand with mobile phones in hand capturing every twist and turn. In the spotlight, a guest waits in anticipation for their cherished artwork. The crowd erupts in laughter and delight as Dale’s personality is only dulled by the smiles on guests face. A rich array of colored tubes is crafted into an exceptional headpiece as flashes erupt from friend’s cameras — your guest struts like a supermodel. Standing there is Dale with guests waiting for their personalized masterpiece.

“Dale’s entertaining and social skills are outstanding, and he had people interacting and laughing.  He made Urschel Laboratories, Inc 100-year celebration a big success.” – Karen Anselm, Vice President of Production.

Let Dale help you. As he has done with thousands of other corporate event coordinators, have him as your ice breaker entertainment and have people interacting and making your vision of the perfect corporate event come true.
