The Best Reasons for using Consultants when Booking Events

Entertainment and Event Consultants will give you so many more benefits than you realized

“Consultancy”, it’s a buzzword that you hear everywhere, but what do consultants do for you? And more importantly, are they worth your time and investment?

We’re not going to speak on behalf of every industry and their consultants. But we do know the entertainment and events industry inside and out. We’re going to give you 5 reasons why it’s beneficial to use consultants when booking your events.

This article is going to be about the ways you can benefit from having entertainment consultants. However, lot of this applies to other areas of the industry too! Such as catering, AV, venue hire, and more.

You’re receiving insider event industry knowledge

Consultants within any industry are often experts in their field, with multitudes of experience under their belt. One of the best ways to know the event and entertainment industry, is to have been an event entertainer yourself. Applause Entertainment is a very good example of a consultancy that has deep industry roots.

Applause Entertainment was founded by Daniel Tusia and Louise Creighton. Both of whom have been working first-hand within the events industry as entertainers and consultants for most of their lives. With their background, they’ve created a team of consultants who are all an intrinsic part of the entertainment industry.

The industry knowledge that you can expect from Applause Entertainment includes experience from actors of stage and theatre. Event management, event entertainment and performance, recorded musicians, to name a just a few. You will be speaking with consultants who have first-hand tried and trusted solutions to achieve your entertainment objectives.

By booking your entertainment with a consultant, you get to have a peek “behind the scenes” of the entertainment industry. You’ll benefit directly from their knowledge and tricks of the trade.

The Applause Entertainment consultants’ advice, recommendations, and ideas are all rooted from their wealth of passion and knowledge. And you’re getting unparalleled confidence for your event. Being artists themselves, they have an invested passion in making your event a success for all involved.

We know the questions to ask to ensure nothing is missed or overlooked

It’s very important that you’re asked the right questions by our consultants. The right questions will unearth all sorts of possibilities that will take your event and entertainment to the next level.

Applause Entertainment consultants will ask you the right questions based on their practical experience with events. Their knowledge may derive from their previous history in event planning and entertainment. Otherwise it comes from direct feedback from previous clients. Between the collective minds at Applause Entertainment, there is thousands of hours of accumulated wisdom at your disposal. How do you top that?

The recommendations aren’t just limited to what entertainment, but also the why, the who, the where, the how, the when… it goes on. Our consultants will make recommendations based on the event goals you are trying to achieve. They can guide you on whether a shorter or longer performance time is more effective to that goal. And more importantly, whether it will create that wow-factor with your guests.

More than that, there have been instances where our consultants have made recommendations to make an event safer. One benefit of an experienced consultant is their ability to see potential dangers and OH&S violations. Violations that you may not have realized but the consultant has foreseen due to their past events knowledge. You’ll definitely want to take advantage of that.

The most beneficial service that you can enjoy with a consultancy is the fact that they will recommend alternatives. Which brings us to our next point…

You’ll receive honest recommendations, and better alternatives

Entertainment consultants are there to help you get the most out of your entertainment, while keeping true to your vision. The client’s ideas are what make the event unique, and skilled consultants keep that on their minds when making any recommendations.

However sometimes, a great vision is only great in theory, and not realistic or practical at a live event. Applause Entertainment consultants are here to listen and take on board your ideas, and make recommendations and suggest alternatives based on what will realistically work for live events.

A common misconception that our consultants often come across is when a client has an idea that they saw in a movie or on YouTube. True, these ideas looked great on screen, but at a live event, there is no take-two; you can’t just wait 5 minutes and attempt The Moment again. Nor will your guests stand at the perfect viewing angle, and there is no expert sound mixer to make spoken dialogue audible over event music. Ideas that look good when filmed and watched later on may actually disappoint guests and “fizzle out” at the actual event.

Our consultants will step in and give you some recommendations geared towards maximum effectiveness for live events. The consultants would ask for the reason behind the idea. As well as what atmosphere and general feeling the entertainment needs to complement. And most importantly, how you’d like your audience to experience the entertainment. The specialists recommendations are for the purpose of enhancing the original idea of your event, they know what works and what will improve your event.

You get entertainment that’s best for you – not shopped from a catalogue

The result from all the expert knowledge, practical advice, and informed recommendation, is that you’re getting the best possible entertainment for you. Your entertainment – and by extension your event – is now the product of something best suited for your event needs, your style, your location, your audience, your budget, and you! Most importantly, every single valuable service that our consultant has provided will be geared to creating an event experience that will captivate your crowd, and amaze your audience.

This is why Applause Entertainment is a consultancy, rather than a directory. When your entertainment has been consulted and curated by experts in the field, and not picked off the shelf, you have eliminated the risk that the entertainment won’t be effective. Whenever you’re unsure if a particular idea will work, you’ll benefit so much more from using an expert consultant to book your entertainment hire.

Along with our complimentary entertainment coordination service, you’ll be receiving a premium service experience for your event entertainment. This is what differentiates the Applause Entertainment consultant from what you’ll get if you’re just “shopping from a catalogue”, or rather simply booking from a directory of performers. It’s also what saves you the time and headache of blindly searching and comparing hundreds of options that’s available out there.

Ultimately, the best reason to use an entertainment consultant is the same reason why you read expert reviews before purchasing, why you read books written by experts to learn about a topic, and in general consult with experts in order to receive the best of whatever you’re looking for. An Applause Entertainment consultant makes your event bookings a whole lot easier, and you’ll benefit by receiving the best possible entertainment suited to your event needs and budget.
