THEY improv serves The Netherlands with a variety of improv comedy, game shows, murder mysteries and team building activities in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Utrecht and Eindhoven.
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!
Amsterdam is the focus of such possibilities and is the capital of the country. There is such a great architectural heritage and attractions that can be followed and amazed at, but could also be part of a scavenger hunt to get to know the city. These include the Anne Frank House, Artis Royal Zoo, Flower Market, Diamond City, Heineken Brewery Tour, Hortus Botanicus, Madame Tussaud's, Rijksmuseum, Ripley's, The Royal Palace, TunFun, Van Gogh Museum, Vondelpark, along with so many others. There is no shortage of amazing options for enhancing employees.
The Hague is the Focus for Many Corporate Events
The Hague is the focus of the world for everything from the Internationa Tribunal to serving as the HQ for major corporations. With such a large international community here, there is no shortage of needing entertainment and team building options in English. We do our clients justice!
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 Dutch 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 Rome, Milan, Naples, Florence and Venice.
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 Holland is certainly not English, of course, there is a lot of business conducted in English. We serve those meetings and help to bond Dutch 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.
