We always hear advice about how to impress a potential employer or how to land a job through an awesome interview, but what about the other side? An employer looking for a star pupil needs to know how to sift through the talent, ask the right questions, and present the open position in an attractive light. If you’ve never conducted an interview before, you may feel as much as pressure as if you’re sitting in the hot seat yourself! Follow these simple rules and don’t sweat it when it comes to interviewing a job candidate:
Location, Location, Location
The location could potentially make or break the interview before it has even begun. While you may think meeting up at a bar over a few beers will make you seem like a laidback and cool boss, this isn’t the ideal interviewing location. Similarly, if you work from home, conducting an interview from your kitchen or living room could isolate your interviewee as he or she is forced to interview on your turf while dealing with your pets, mess, or personal distractions.

When it’s time for you to decide on a location to hold an important meeting, presentation, or seminar, you’ll want to choose a city with not only a good business reputation, but also a city with relevance to your field. If your company is associated with the financial industry or global trade, you may want to consider Hong Kong for your next meeting location.
Hong Kong is considered the spot where “East meets West,” as it is home to a vast number of corporate headquarters and a well-established international financial center. It’s a hub for businesses around the world to convene and meet in what’s known as the freest capitalist economy in the world, according to the Index of Economic Freedom. Hong Kong is also a major focal point for international finance and trade, which only further contributes to its attractiveness as a location for global meetings and seminars. Read more...
Sometimes traveling for business can be a pain, especially when the destination is seemingly in the middle of nowhere. After a long day meeting with clients or partners, it’s no fun to taxi back and eat alone at the hotel restaurant for dinner because there’s nowhere else nearby to eat and nothing to do in the area. Next time you have say in where your company hosts its next seminar or conference, why not choose a place that provides all with some entertainment?
Fortunately, Davinci Meeting Rooms offers a huge selection of space in cities all around the world. Davinci features meeting space for conferences, seminars, presentations, and day offices in Atlanta, Georgia, which is one popular destination in particular for hosting meetings.

‘Tis the season again. No, not the holidays: flu season. And unfortunately, the flu quickly spreads within an office. While the idea of isolating your sick co-workers into contamination rooms is certainly tempting, there are other, much friendlier, ways to stay healthy during the flu season.
Keep Hand Sanitizer Handy
Walking around the office with rubber gloves isn’t exactly style-friendly, and it’s too hard to avoid using doorknobs and faucet handles completely. The way to combat this is by keeping a small bottle of hand sanitizer close by your desk so you can quickly kill the flu germs.
Stay More Hydrated Than Usual
Your body gets sick when your immune system is weak. This can happen due to lack of sleep, too much stress, and not enough liquids to keep you healthily hydrated. Keep an extra water bottle or two at your desk to remind you to drink more H2O while at work. Read more...

Oftentimes when companies are traveling for business or meeting with clients in a different city, reserving a hotel room for meeting space is usually the go-to option. Sure, it might be convenient to roll out of bed and head down to the meeting room in the hotel lobby, but what are some of the downfalls of a traditional hotel meeting space?
For starters, what if the hotel concierge isn’t the friendliest? The hotel front desk could unknowingly be the first impression your potential clients receive of your business. Or even worse, what if the hotel staff double-booked the meeting room? You’ve gathered all your clients or future customers in a foreign city, only to have nowhere to meet! Meeting in the lobby or in the patio area probably isn’t the level of professionalism you are hoping to convey. Read more...

Let’s be honest, everyone loves swag. Whether you’re giving a presentation representing your company or you’re rewarding your employees with some company merchandise, your swag says a lot about your business. Stay away from boring company swag with a few upgrades to create a big marketing punch.
Beach Towels and Scarves
Seasonal items are a great way to guarantee your swag will be used and be seen. If it’s summer time, a company beach towel is a good way for big advertising on the beach with the crowds. Likely, in winter, a warm scarf with the company’s logo is a good way to receive extra exposure as the wearer walks around town.
