There was a corporate event that my boss held for investors, and I was in charge of planning the corporate party entertainment for the event. I thought about what would be the best thing for such an event. I figured that a room full of old people wouldn’t really get a kick out of seeing a magician pull stuff out of a hat, so I went with a musical act. I had a hunch that the guests would like to hear some of the old songs that they listened to back in the day, so I hired a live band to play those songs.
My boss thought it was a good idea to have the live band. I asked him if there were any special songs the band should perform, and he gave me a list of songs to relay to the live band. The band made a note of these songs and told me that they would be able to play all of them for the big event. Everything was coming together nicely, and I was going to be at the event to make sure that it would.
As the event happened, all of the guests stood around, with a glass of wine in one hand and a plate in the other, while they talked to each other about business. They were enjoying all of the songs that the live band was playing, and even did a little bit of dancing to them. I saw my boss talking with a lot of the big name investors at the event, and I just knew that he was going to get a good deal from those talks. He thanked me for hiring the band and told me that a raise was in my future, which I loved to hear. I hope he lets me plan more events.
