THEY improv serves France with a variety of improv comedy, game shows, murder mysteries and team building activities in Paris and beyond.
The City of Lights is a cultural and commercial center like none other in the world. This international and cosmopolitan city is the envy of the world and the streets are filled with music and love. Paris is a great backdrop for corporate events of all types.
Nice and the other coastal communities of the French Riviera and locations that are sought out as a place to motivate people to want to attend. This includes meetings and incentives events for corporate clients and locations for training while enjoying the best France has to offer.
The port city of Marseille is a great place for international commerce. There are many multi-national corporations operating here and often meetings are conducted in English to allow to accommodate their American and English counterparts.
Lyon is a major commercial hub with major banking interests operating from the city. With chemical, pharmaceutical and biotech industries already operating, there is no wonder as to how a high-tech sector arose with start-ups in video games and programming. With an international HQ for Interpol, mysteries take on an even greater meaning.
There are many areas with wineries and vineyards that serve as the backdrop for corporate retreats or small gatherings. We bring a variety of options to events in Bordeaux, Alsace, Burgundy, Loire, Provence and Rhone Valley to serve the corporate clients and ex-pats that flock to the regions.
Celebrate the Holidays!
Whether you are looking for employee recognition, a holiday party, Halloween or Christmas gift exchange or simply a good time, we have ideas that can help your organization with its bonding.
We help corporate holiday parties be more entertaining while possibly achieving other team building goals!
Paris is the Focus for Many Corporate Events
With so many great areas to work, such as near the Louvre and Palais Royale, the Bourse, Marais (and the Picasso Museum), the Latin Quarter, Saint Germain, the Eiffel Tower (including the market street and embassies), Champs-Elysées, Charles DeGalle Airport, and many other great locations throughout the rest of Paris, there is no shortage of options for enhancing employees.
Let us come to you and help your group in Paris!
For private parties, banquets and corporate events, our cast of detectives, mysterious suspects and plots are customized to our clients at venues of their choosing for luncheons or dinner shows. We will have your group trying to discover whodunit while laughing the night away. We have smaller versions where the participants play the characters in a no-pressure environment.
Game shows invite your group to participate more directly through actually coming up on stage and being put through TV Show-styled game shows to compete for not very expensive prizes (we wouldn't want anyone unhappy that they didn't win). With a wide selection like our version of the Family Feud, the Match Game, Minute to Win It or the Newlywed Game, there is something to take care of your group.
Improvisational comedy is a great way to have an ensemble entertain your group in a relaxed atmosphere. This can be done very presentational or more intimate if you prefer. The nature of this show is lightning in a bottle. There are moments that can never be repeated because everything is made up in the moment. The audience shares the creative process and can be active participants in the fun.
We can put the focus on management or on certain hot button issues that you would like to address through the use of a talk show. Great for state of the company presentations, we can help American companies spread the main corporate values to international audiences. This can all be done with more of a comedic bent or higher production values to enhance the impact.
Getting employees to work together while potentially training for specific skill sets is what we do. Whether it is training for leadership or presentation skills, sales training, emotional intelligence or simple communication, we have programs for you. Because we utilize American techniques, this makes our workshops stand out from our competition.
From Scavenger Hunts to Mini-Olympiads or other group activities, we have a selection of programs that can get people working together in unique ways. Our Scavenger Hunts can help you to get your group to know the area and be exposed to the local people while enhancing bonding. Simply contact us to find out how we can help your team to get to the next level.
There are three basic types of French events.
First, there are the events where American companies want to meet with their local counterparts. This involves bonding and getting to know one another.
Second, there are the events with more of an international flavor. These involve people from several countries getting together. These tend to be in the more cosmopolitan areas such as Paris, Nice, Lyon and Marseille.
Third, there are the events with teams of Americans celebrating a success. These incentives awards events often include activities that get away from the every day.
While the language of France is French, of course, the reality is that there are meetings conducted in English. We serve those meetings and help to bond French employees with multi-national companies based in England or the U.S.
Our programs run the full gamut of whatever services you may desire and can be based on any desired results. This means that you should consider factors that can influence the style of performance.
First, you should choose if you want a daytime activity or if you would prefer something around a meal.
Second, where might this take place? We can do things outside, such as a scavenger hunt or Mini-Olympiad, or we can have more of a dinner event. The relative safety of a hotel can be a primary choice or you could desire more of an urban backdrop.
Third, you should let us know your goals. Is it team building, skills development, entertainment, or anything else?
Fourth, how long do you want the event to last?
Fifth, are there language or cultural considerations? We can adapt to most things though we usually operate in English. Even for people from a specific country, English is often the great equalizer as dialects can cause issues. Each country has their own dialects and words that don't cross the borders. Knowing these differences is helpful.
Lastly, if you know your budget, it can help guide the process and limit options to what would be more acceptable. This goes in both directions as knowing there is a larger budget can open options that we might not otherwise make you aware of.
With that information we can usually generate some approaches to help you achieve your goals.
Some of the more remote locations may also require accommodations for the performers. There are additional costs for incidental expenses such as parking, etc., but tends to not be too significant. Of course, the choice of venue may influence the cost as some restaurants are much more expensive than others.
You should consider parking costs, transportation for your team if off site, food costs and accommodations. Of course, bringing us to you is often less expensive than bringing you to us.
