4 key points for a successful business lunch in Geneva

Choose the restaurant or caterer. It is advisable to choose a place that fulfils as many of the following conditions as possible:

    • Proximity to parking areas to avoid searching for a parking space for a long time ;

The setting should be spacious yet intimate, so that customers can chat without having to lower their voice or look at others in the restaurant ;

offer a sufficiently diversified menu – especially if a large number of people are invited to the business lunch. Don’t forget to offer your guests a few exquisite details, giving the setting you have chosen a special and memorable story.

In addition to the previous point, it is important to consider the menu options when selecting a restaurant.
If your customer prefers gluten-free food or is vegan, for example, make sure that the menu has plenty of options for him or her. It is also advisable to ask your guest if they have any allergies when organising your meeting.

Choose a caterer or a top-of-the-range restaurant known 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.

You can organise a business meal to be both enjoyable and professional. The organisation of a business luncheon in Geneva must be perfect and nothing should be left to chance.

A business lunch is above all a moment of conviviality with work partners, suppliers, clients or others.

Que vous souhaitiez mieux comprendre les besoins d’un client, vendre vos services, renforcer une relation d’affaires ou tout simplement rester en contact, rien n’est mieux qu’un business lunch traditionnel.

Keep an eye on time

Plan a 1.5 hour business lunch, but be aware of the situation. If the conversation is lagging behind, or if your client leaves you to plan all the work that awaits him or her at the office, it’s a good idea to finish quickly.
Propose a second meeting if necessary.

Prepare for follow-up

Send an email the next day to thank your customer for joining you. Also make a note of the notes of your discussion. A checklist of personal facts about your client that you have learned will be useful at your next meeting.

Be discreet

It can be difficult to keep calm while eating several dishes, but it is essential for the success of the business lunch. This principle comes with several things to remember.

Don’t get drunk. Several dishes may result in several drinks, but don’t let that happen. People’s social radar often stops working when they have had too much to drink. You don’t want this to happen during an important business lunch.

Only give information about yourself when you are asked, and ask questions of others. Listen more than you talk. You want the lunch to be about the client. A person who talks too much about himself or herself is considered to be in bad taste.

If you disagree with something that has been said, stay calm and cordial. Ask more questions and subtly share your thoughts on a topic. Bounce ideas off each other instead of arguing. Business lunches can quickly get out of hand. You are the only person you can control, so be exemplary in your communication with your clients.

Never forget that a business lunch in Geneva is above all a professional event.

This is not a farewell, it is a rendezvous at the next business lunch.

End the business lunch with a thank you and a firm handshake.

Follow up
Let your “guest” know that you will send a follow-up email as a seller or that you are expecting one as a customer. It’s a direct way of bringing things back to reality.

The more you know, the better
Lunchtime business etiquette goes much further than “please” and “thank you”.
