If you have an important client meeting coming up you’ll want to do everything in your power to make the right impression. Here are six easy ways to wow your clients in your next meeting, from choosing the right venue hire in Brisbane or Melbourne to following up post-meeting like a pro.
- Choose the right environment
Nobody will warm to a business deal in an uncomfortable environment. You’ll want a meeting venue that’s modern and stylish, without being showy. Rather than choosing the closest “venue hire near me”, select an event space that is neutral, airy and includes comfortable chairs so your clients will feel at ease.
- Communicate clearly with the client just before the meeting
If you’ve arranged a meeting quite far ahead of time, it’s always a good idea to send your client a reminder email or give them a quick call the day before with the details of the venue, time, date and the agenda for the meeting. They’ll be sure to appreciate it.
- Ensure your technology is 100% blip-free
That means WiFi that works reliably and is easy to connect to, as well as projectors, cables and audio visual systems that are set up and ready to go. Your events planner will be able to help you to ensure everything is perfectly prepared ahead of time.
- Offer high quality coffee, tea and refreshments
It seems such a simple thing, but if you present your client with name-brand biscuits it really sends the wrong message. Be sure to work with a venue that can provide fresh, delicious catering to show how highly you think of your client. If you can remember the way they drink their coffee when they walk in, even better!
- Provide luxurious and modern accommodation
If you’re meeting with clients in a different location to your usual office, then you may need to arrange accommodation. You’ll want everything to be perfect for them, from beautiful interior styling right down to the fluffiest of pillows. Working with a venue that can provide quality conference facilities as well as stylish accommodation is the ideal solution.
- Follow up after the meeting
In the hours after you say goodbye to your client be sure to follow up with an email thanking them for their time, and taking action on any questions or notes that you intended to address after the meeting. This simple act shows your respect for your client’s time, and demonstrates your capability and attention to detail.
