15 Mar A little story about how Sonix started and where we are now …!
Glenn Tector’s diverse background in engineering, secondary school teaching and radio DJ-ing have all been the secret to the success of his thriving corporate events company, Sonix Events. His unique mix of design expertise (he makes a lot of his own equipment); knowing the right tunes to spin from the playlist; as well as spending time with the youth of today, who keep him informed of what’s ‘on-trend’; all combine to inspire ideas for games, activities and novelty entertainment.
Glenn loves to create an atmosphere of fun and excitement at his events – an ethos that has trickled down through the business – Glenn’s business card states his title as ‘FUNaging Director’, and his Finance Manager is known as the ‘Number FUN-cher’!
With very few overheads, and a reliable professional force of contract staff, Glenn can run his business on a tight ship and this is reflected in the savings he passes onto the client. He prides Sonix on being the best value for money in the industry.
Glenn and his team specialise in Family Fun Days, Corporate Entertainment and Team Building Activities. Family Fun Days are a great way to reward and connect staff on a basic human level. People bring their children into the office or chosen venue for the day and enjoy the use of bouncy castles, carnival games, giant games such as Connect 4 and Jenga, as well as helping themselves to novelty foods such as candyfloss and slush puppies.
‘Organisations are leaning more and more towards connecting staff, celebrating success and rewarding staff in the summer and not just at the end of the year’ explains Glenn ‘Our family fun days are a fantastic way to say thank you for all the work you are doing. It makes a statement – we know you have a family, and we appreciate you spending time away from them to work for us, so bring them into the office for a great day out. It’s a fantastic morale boost for employees.’
Sonix also provide entertainment at all times of the year – party nights include Ocean’s 11 – Dress to Impress Casino Night, Hot to Trot Race Nights, Buckin Bronco’s Wild West (also perfect for the summer season), and Rock & Roll Bingo which is a new craze sweeping the nation mixing music and dance, and suitable for all age groups.
‘We are growing our range of corporate entertainment nights all the time. We love to be innovative and our events always provide a twist from the norm. We also offer a wide range of team building activities, anything from hostage negotiation scenarios at a conference, to a Total Wipeout obstacle course in a field, we have numerous options available and always coming up with new ideas’.
Sonix also has a top of the range AV, lighting and draping service so can accommodate any conferencing and ceremony needs. As well as that, they specialise in Christmas parties and The Polar Express with Santa’s Grotto is a magical family day that more and more organisations are hosting instead of the traditional Christmas party.
