Why Corporate Poker?
Poker is the fantastic alternative to the traditional corporate entertainment evening!
Not only is poker the fastest growing sport-activity in the world, it is of course fantastic fun. The bluff and bravado of the game, the chance to pit one's wits against co-workers as well as bosses, the ecstasy of victory and the accompanying bragging rights are all part of what makes poker just about the most unashamedly fun game in the world.
Our random table draws will provide an excellent atmosphere by mixing clients with employees, or blending your different departments together, allowing for a great bonding experience.
Moreover, playing poker demands many of the skills that are required in the business world; reading people and knowing who you're dealing with, constant pragmatic assessment of the situation, selective aggression, patience, mental coordination, taking calculated risks, the list goes on and on...
In summary, a corporate poker evening can be an excellent way to entertain clients, a great method of augmenting team morale, and most importantly it will be tremendous fun!
