Every company has its unique personality. That’s why when it comes to company parties and events, the type of entertainment should match the quality of work your employees exert daily. Don’t settle for subpar acts. Choose an entertainer who your employees will still be talking about on Monday! San Diego event professional Angie Kemp, CMP, CPCE was recently asked to gather corporate event entertainment ideas for those who have seen it all. This unique list goes far beyond a basic party entertainer:
• Focus3D DJ & Drummer. This party-starting duo combines live beats with stellar visuals and set design.
