Meeting with a client for a coffee shop meeting isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be maybe it’s time to look at a private meeting room.
A coffee shop meeting in a crowded, busy and noisy coffee shop offers very little privacy and way too many distractions so it’s difficult to talk openly and there’s always ‘ears’ listening into your conversation. The WiFi connection is often sketchy and slow so that awesome presentation you put together will lose the maximum impact you were hoping for as it glitches during the loading process. Then to top it off, you notice the barista giving you the evil eye as you take up valuable ‘real estate’ for hours on end for a $5 coffee, so maybe it’s time to ditch the coffee shop and go for a private meeting room.
The bottom line – it’s just not professional and could do more harm to your business than you think. So ditch the coffee shop and go for a private meeting room.
Here’s an interesting article about how Coffee shop meetings could be hurting your business rather than increasing customers and revenue.
Stick to an office environment and you’ll find that both you (and your bottom line) perform better and profit more both in and out of the meeting.
