A rally point, a kind of area where people with the same goals meet; it’s an area where people can gather based on an agreed time for various types of agenda. It doesn’t matter if all of your services are home-based or offshore or you’re allin the same area, there will be times where there will be an opportunity or a need to meet up. While most would go to coffee shops, it’s not always the ideal place to stay in because not everyone in a coffee shop can be a behaved individual. Besides, eating a lot in a coffee shop just to justify your stay is costly and unproductive especially if what you’re eating is something that can drain your energy or make you weak.
It’s the reason why some are using coworking spaces not just for formality sake but because it has everything you need for a positive meeting experience, like the environment and the equipment. If you’re still not convinced, below are some of the perks that coworking spaces offer in their meeting rooms (and it’s not the good Wi-Fi connection FYI).
No distractions: Informal places (cafes, restaurant) are distracting, especially during rush hours. If you’re doing something special and it so happens to be in a rush hour, maybe you should take that as a sign that coffee shops aren’t conducive tocompany matters. But with coworking spaces, you can rent the meeting room with no distractions whatsoever. You can continuously work and get the job done without cringing that some person just interrupted you by spilling their drinks, talking, yelling, laughing, and running.
Presentation friendly: Coworking spaces are presentation friendly because it’s well equipped with everything you need from network phones to projectors. Whatever you need, they have it. There are times when you will need thisequipment, like during a product presentation. You can’t expect people toappreciate your product presentation if you’re in an informal place; you’re not doing networking.
The table is big enough to accumulate everyone comfortably: In any informal place, you will be lucky if you can gather a total of 6 people. But what if you’re having more than 6 people, like 10 or 12? They won’t fit on one table. Why don’t you avoid the hassle and go for a coworking space instead? Do you know that most of them offer complimentary coffee as well too?
Sometimes, it’s a no-brainer to go to informal places like cafés and restaurants to meet. While these places are cozy, have good food, drinks, and not to mention has free Wi-Fi, its limitations show, especially if you’ve been a solid customer. What if it’s rush hour and you’re in an important meeting? What if you need to do a product presentation and what if you got more than 6 people? In those instances, don’t you think that it’s more reasonable to opt for a coworking space? If you’re looking for a coworking space with a solid meeting room,
