7 tips to prepare a meeting in Geneva

Why shouldn’t we pay as much attention to the preparation of meetings as we do to other tasks, activities and challenges?

We’ve all been to meetings that are always on our calendars, only to wonder why we were there in the first place.

We felt that we could be more effective by doing “real work”, which was probably due to a lack of preparation and foresight on the part of the person leading the meeting. Preparing for a meeting is not particularly complicated, but it does require some thought.

Should the meeting take place in the office building or is it better to bring the team outside?

A change of scenery can be particularly effective for more creative activities such as strategic planning, brainstorming and generating new ideas.

Regardless of where the meeting takes place, it is imperative that the meeting room is comfortable and large enough for the group and the type of activity planned. If small group meetings are necessary, for example, there must be enough space for the groups to work independently of each other..

Even if you think otherwise, a restaurant is a wonderful venue for a business meeting. In other words, a carefully selected restaurant with the space and capacity to host meetings is an excellent venue for meetings with clients as well as your staff.

If you’ve never held an off-site meeting before, you may be wondering how to hold a business meeting in a restaurant. That’s why we’ve put together all our best tips on how to organise a business meeting in a restaurant.

For a business meeting in a restaurant to be successful, it is essential that you coordinate with a contact person in the restaurant. If your group occupies only one table, it is not necessary to have staff members looking after you and your guests.

If you are organising an event for your own employees or a large group of customers or prospects and your group will occupy two or more tables, it is advisable to ask your contact person to assign the appropriate number of waiters to cater exclusively for your group until the end of your meeting.

The location of your meeting in the restaurant will influence the final success of your meeting. By their very nature, most restaurants are noisy and full of distractions. If a restaurant has a reception area and your group occupies several tables, you can ask to be seated in that area.

When it comes to organising a business meeting, business meetings in a restaurant are not very different from those held in your office. You need to prepare your agenda in advance and make sure that all the necessary materials for your meeting are in place and working.

As with an in-house meeting, you must be the first on site and give yourself enough time to make sure you have everything you need on hand to make your meeting a success.

Choosing a caterer or a top-of-the-range restaurant recognized for its know-how

The choice of caterer or restaurant is crucial to the success of the event. Above all, the reputation of the service provider must be taken into account: know-how, experience, quality of service, etc.

By opting for a top-of-the-range restaurant or catering service in Geneva that has already proven itself to a demanding clientele, you can be sure that the organisation of the day will live up to your expectations. Our staff can help you find the right reception hall and advise you in the choice of the different service providers. His team can also take care of the decoration so that everything is in harmony with your style or the theme you have chosen.

Have an agenda. An agenda is simply a list of topics to be discussed and the order in which they will be addressed. It’s very simple, isn’t it?

However, agendas are usually too optimistic and do not leave enough time for each topic. The temptation is then great to include as many items as possible and to cover them all, whether or not the meeting exceeds the allotted time.

With a clearly defined objective, it is much easier to develop an agenda that covers only those topics necessary to achieve the objective. Allow enough time to cover each topic and be realistic about the amount of time needed for discussion.

In addition, consider the agenda as a guide, rather than an absolute representation of how the meeting will unfold. This allows you to focus on achieving the objective, rather than checking off a list of topics.

Do participants need information to prepare for the meeting?

By distributing it in advance for review, you will save time at the meeting. Not only will participants have a better idea of exactly what will be discussed, but if there are decisions to be made or problems to be solved, they will be able to think about them before the meeting and contribute valuable ideas.

Plan to use technology to keep participants interested. In today’s digital world, most people are used to seeing graphics or videos to support the words they hear. Appeal to this mindset and incorporate audio-visuals into your meeting planning.

Widescreen computers, Smart Board presentations (interactive whiteboard) and applications such as Kahoot (an online application for generating interactive quizzes or quizzes) that encourage interaction are a welcome change from the usual long PowerPoint presentations.

Technology update – make sure you test it first. The last thing you need is to get upset because the laptop doesn’t work or you can’t review your visuals when you need them. If technology isn’t your forte, ask someone else to test it before the meeting. This will save you time and keep you on schedule if you prepare a little in advance.
