Corporate Hospitality With A Difference - The Ridesmiths Guide

Sep 23, 2019

Whether you want to entertain a select few special clients or reward your team with an experience to remember, corporate hospitality can be a challenge. Especially if want something a little bit different. 

Here are our top four suggestions for an unforgettable day, perfect if you want to avoid the usual day at the races or cricket match.

1. Connect through Gastronomy at Aveqiva

Aveqiva offer you a very special opportunity to build relationships, learn new skills, have fun and eat wonderful food. 

Your guests will be split into four teams (you can plan your teams to deepen existing relationships or use the opportunity to make introductions) and each team will have the guidance of a top chef as they create part of a stunning meal. 

You will then come together to see each team present their dishes and enjoy the meal together. 

There is plenty of time to relax in the bar afterwards as well, which makes this event the perfect blend of an unforgettable bonding experience with the opportunity to talk business.

2. Comedy Masterclass

For a day that will leave your guests smiling, why not enjoy a masterclass at The Comedy School? 

With a team of 40 professional comedians to choose from, you will certainly be in safe hands as you turn your hand to improvisation and stand up. 

It could even prove useful in the boardroom. The Comedy School offer workshops on communication skills and quick thinking designed specifically for corporate clients.

3. Pure Indulgence 

If you want something that involves a little less activity and more room for conversation then a trip to Alexeeva and Jones in Notting Hill will give you exactly that. 

Sample chocolates and truffles, freshly handmade by a team of 25 expert chocolatiers from around the world and pair them with sparkling champagne, wine, tea, coffee or even more indulgent hot chocolate. Forget the cheap chocolates of childhood, this is the best in fine chocolate. 

Luxurious temptation that glistens like jewels in display cases and provides the perfect backdrop for a client meeting.

4. Step Back in Time to the Age of Elegance

For the ultimate in classic elegance, treat your guests to a trip on the British Pulman, sister train to the Orient Express. From the moment you meet your guests in the dedicated lounge at Victoria, you will be surrounded by vintage elegance and true British charm.

Onboard the train you will be greeted by a white liveried steward who will look after you for the duration of your trip. As you speed through the countryside you’ll enjoy delicious food prepared by top chefs, there are many options from a five course meal to afternoon tea. 

You can book tables for 2 or three people but it is also possible to hire a carriage or even the whole train. Your guests will be truly blown away to see your branding onboard, including custom menus emblazoned with your logo nestled amongst the ornate glassware and crisp white linen.

Transport with Style

However you choose to wow colleagues and clients, make it a whole day experience by booking a car with Ridesmiths. We’ll treat your guests as valued customers, not just another faire, exactly as they should be.
