Davinci 101: Better Meeting Spaces for Better Meetings

Davinci Virtual 101s

Around the time the client asked, “Isn’t this, like, the third time they’ve played Katy Perry?” Travis knew that the meeting wasn’t going well. When the meeting concluded with the client saying that he would need to “still think about it some more,” Travis was hardly surprised.

For many entrepreneurs, small business owners, and consultants like Travis, meetings with clients can be a bit of a challenge to pull off successfully if they don’t have an office or conference room. On the other hand, it hardly makes sense to pay monthly rent for an office space that is rarely used. Choosing to meet at coffee shops, restaurants, libraries, or in hotel meeting rooms has been common, but none of them offer the same atmosphere and business-minded amenities that a real conference room does. Thankfully, Davinci Meeting Rooms offers professional meeting space in business centers that can be rented by the hour; eliminating the need to meet in distracting or inconvenient locations.

A city landscape with high rise office buildings containing conference room rentals..

More than ever, small business owners are finding ways to improve their processes and drive profitability. One of this year’s biggest small business trends comes with no surprise: conference room rentals.

Conference room rentals answer the meeting needs small business owners might have while on the go—very conveniently and at a low cost.

Your list might also include supplies you need for the meeting to be successful: phone conferencing services, high-speed Internet, projectors, etc. 

Finding conference rooms for rent matching all of this criteria seems too good to be true—but it’s not. Davinci Meeting Rooms provides space that fulfills the needs of your checklist, plus more.

Ask yourself this question while preparing for a meeting

The ultimate magic answer to meeting success, falls with the meeting preparation and one powerful question. Discover the question as well as the answer in this post.

All too often, we leave meetings without accomplishing all that needs to be done; and consequently, we have to schedule another meeting. Why is this the case? Was the meeting agenda unclear? Was there too much on the agenda? Should there have been material circulated before the meeting to prepare the attendants? Was everyone in attendance that should have been?

These questions might help discover the secrets of a successful meeting, but the ultimate magic answer to actual meeting success, falls with the meeting preparation and one powerful question:

What is the single most important item to accomplish in this meeting?

Notice “single”—one, not two, not ten, but one. Defining the answer to this question will help you plan effectively. It will not only help you determine where and how long the meeting should last, it will help you figure who should attend.
