How to hold a successful business meeting


When it comes to holding business meetings it can be difficult to know where to start with your planning. Once you have booked the Meeting Rooms Windsor way for all of your staff to meet at, you can set about thinking about the plan and agenda for the day. Here are our top tips on holding a successful business meeting.

  • What do you want to get out of the day – having an idea as to what your overall aim of the day is incredibly important. Are you looking to get the team together for a team building activity, do you need to update them on key changes in your business sector or are you using this opportunity to take part in some training.

  • Agenda – once you have set out the reason for the meeting you can start planning the day. It is important to ensure that you start the day off with coffee and quick catch up rather than launching straight into sharing the information. You will also want to make sure that you have enough breaks during the day where people can stretch their legs and take comfort breaks.
  • Finishing time – if you have people travelling from different locations for your meeting it is important to make sure that you have a clear finishing time and that you stick to it. People will make their travel plans and book accommodation or transport tickets for this and will not want to be late for these. You also don’t want to be finishing too early and having your staff members trying to find something to do until their train arrives.
