LEADERS IN EVENTS

TRADITIONAL, DIGITAL AND HYBRID

Humor Makes Business Better

Comedy is in our DNA, and Boom Chicago puts humor at the heart of everything we do. And yes that’s how you spell humor now. Sorry Brexit.

For 25 years, Boom Chicago for Business has applied our comedy in the corporate world. We use comedy to create impactful content, support messages and to make people laugh. We also have a sense of humor about ourselves and are fun to work with.

Comedy, however, is quite serious, and it is a secret weapon for communication. It opens closed mental doors and lets new information and ideas slip through. Too many companies and events focus only on their message and not if it arrives. Comedy makes your message stick.

I AM INTERESTED IN...

EVENT HOSTING

Great hosts make a difference and our English speaking emcees are the best. We balance serious messages with a light touch to support your speakers and help the day soar. We celebrate your company, interview the stars, field questions, and make your audience laugh. Not only do we keep the event on track and on time, we take it to the next level.

Our hosts are knowledgeable and empathetic. And if something goes wrong (not unheard of), a professional on stage can help solve things, fill time, and make people laugh.

TAILORED PROGRAMS

Tailored comedy helps connect with your audience and supports the messages of your meeting. You provide the details, and we will find the hysterical side of your strategy, industry, (and colleagues). Boom Chicago brings the energy, grabs attention, and reinforces your message with big laughs.

Bring us in early to help plan your event. We are full of good ideas and rich with experience.

IN-PERSON WORKSHOPS

Don’t just watch. Do! Our interactive programs work on skills relating to leadership, communication, presenting and rewarding creativity.   

We are ‘department agnostic.’ We enjoy working with sales, HR, L&D, Marketing, Communications and customer facing teams. Just not Legal. Lawyers don’t have a sense of humor.

LIVE ONLINE TRAINING

Digital development programs can have many goals: Some workshops are designed to help teams bond when they are not in the same place or don’t see each other enough. Some workshops are to challenge people and help them hone their skills. Other programs are for leaders who lead in-office or virtual teams.

Boom Chicago can design an active program to help you reach most goals.

VIRTUAL NETWORKING SESSIONS

These short but effective sessions can be an exciting break from the routine. They can engage your audience, motivate your staff and break up a long event filled with content and messaging. Mini Sessions are also the perfect activity for an online social gathering like Friday afternoon drinks.

VIDEO CONTENT

There is so much you can do with custom videos. Get people excited for your event with a video invitation. Hit your conference themes with video intermezzos. Create memorable content for an internal or external campaign! We can create great videos for almost every budget level.

AN EVENT LOCATION

Boom Chicago’s Rozentheater is one of the capital’s best locations and part of Unique Venues of Amsterdam. In addition to great facilities, our creativity and can-do attitude make us the perfect partners for your special event. Let’s work together to create something spectacular!

FIRESIDE CHAT
