Whether you're meeting with your team, clients or investors, planning a professional event, like a business meeting at a restaurant, can be daunting. You'll need to strike the right balance between professional and casual; have an agenda; make sure your guests are comfortable.
We've gathered four tips that can help ensure that your next business meeting goes smoothly.
While it's important to come up with an agenda, it's also crucial that you leave room for discussion. It may be tempting to stick to the agenda until every item has been covered, but don't get stuck on one topic for too long. Give your employees or associates some time to talk about what they think of initiatives or other changes in the company; this is their chance to voice concerns and opinions without worrying about being interrupted by someone who has something else on their mind.
Meetings can be stressful for everyone involved. It's important to ensure that the meeting doesn't run too long and make everyone feel as if they're trapped in a never-ending cycle of meetings. If you have an agenda, stick to it. If possible, set a time limit for each agenda item, so people know how much time they have allotted to discuss those topics before moving on to another one. As long as you keep things moving along at a good pace, there shouldn't be any problems with keeping the meeting short enough but not too short
