5 Top tips for making the most of office meetings.

Every industry relies on office meetings to get things done. And most employees dread them. That’s because even when the meeting is necessary and productive, your team members have about a million other things they need to accomplish. Their to-do lists don’t disappear simply because you scheduled a mandatory meeting.

 

  1. Stick to an Agenda

Without an agenda, your meeting will stray from its course and likely last longer than it should. So, create a firm agenda ahead of time to keep all attendees focused and ensure you cover the material you need to.

If there’s a specific challenge to which you need a solution, encourage staff to prepare solutions beforehand, so the meeting focuses on relevant solutions rather than on the problem. This will help employees feel invested because they are contributing to the meeting.

The New York Times bestselling author Mark Murphy suggests having a clear outline can shave as much as 17 minutes off your meeting time.

 

  1. Make it your time to shine

Don’t be afraid to participate in meetings and ask questions. Asking someone to clarify a point or elaborate on something you’re unfamiliar with can be a little nerve-wracking but it can also work in your favour. Your co-workers will recognize that you’re paying attention and thinking critically about the topic at hand.

 

  1. Change the scenery

Meetings can be repetitive and boring, which can hamper productivity. When your team gets comfortable with its surroundings, they may disengage and check out. Shake things up by moving your meeting to a different location at M54 Space Centre. Changing the environment can break up cliques and disrupt the routine, which encourages creativity.

  1. Use technology

Technology has been consistently identified as one of the key contributing factors for meeting planner venue choices. So, our meeting rooms feature stylish, contemporary furnishings. Furthermore, there are multiple audio and visual equipment options.

 

  1. Follow up

By the end of the meeting, you should have a written list of next steps. Each action item should have a single owner and a concrete timeline. When you take this approach to documenting work and responsibilities, you’ll ensure that tasks won’t fall through the cracks and your next meeting will be that much more productive.

Things to consider when booking a meeting room.

Hiring a meeting room may seem straightforward but it’s easy to overlook things, which are important for a successful meeting. Here are four essential things to keep in mind when hiring meeting rooms.

  1. Room Size

If you have an interview then booking a large conferencing suite can be over the top and even intimidating. Likewise if you have a large training seminar then booking a small room can make conditions cramped and uncomfortable for attendees. This means that meeting room size is one of the most important considerations. Finding a place which has an array of rooms sizes and layouts means that no matter what the requirement you can choose a room that will work.

  1. Facility Offerings

When searching for a meeting space, you need to know what the facilities will provide for you. Depending on what the meeting calls for could inform the other kinds of equipment you’ll need. Things which are often required at meetings are; projector or television, white boards, flip charts or presentation equipment and access to Wifi.

  1. Ambiance

Not all meeting rooms are created equal and neither are the kinds of meetings you’re hosting. Some could be training or team meetings. Ideally, you want to choose a meeting space that complements the nature of your meeting. Finding rooms with stylish and contemporary furnishings can give the right impression to your visitors.

  1. Convenience and Accessibility

Considering the accessibility of the location you select is important. If there is travel required, make it as painless as possible. Consider if there is parking on-site and the availability of public transportation.

Never any room for meetings?

A common problem for businesses is what to do when you don’t have space for a meeting. There are an array of situations that lead to this happening. Simply overbooking the one meeting room available is possibly the most common. This leads to a power struggle over who has the more important meeting. The loser often ends up having their meeting at their desk, corner of the office or shoved into an empty office. The problem here is that regardless of the meeting you have a reputation to uphold, you also have requirements in meetings like audiovisual needs or refreshments. So what is the solution?
