Tips to Planning an Office Meeting

Most people in a professional setting will face the challenge of planning an office meeting. The best way to handle this is to plan ahead. We here at Tasty Table Catering know you want to impress you coworkers and boss, so we want to help! Follow these tips, we know they’ll do you well!

 

1. Know you Purpose

What is this meeting for? Is it an in office conference, a meeting with outside vendors, a birthday party or celebration? Whatever it may be, simply knowing what exactly it is will help the planning go right.

 

2. Create an Agenda

This will not only help you throughout the meeting, but it will help the attendees. The agenda allows you to stay organized and set expectations for what is coming ahead.

 

3. Know your Audience

This goes along with knowing your purpose, knowing your audience will help you be able to determine what kind of language to use, formal or informal, as well as shaping your content and professional tone during the meeting.

 

4. Timing is Everything

Timing means what time of the day this meeting is. If morning, know that everyone may be a little sleepy and a strong intro will wake everyone up. If it is late in the day, also know that people may be looking at their watches to go home to keep content relevant and interesting.

 

5. Plan the Food!

If this is a morning meeting, provide coffee or some kind of breakfast to start out the meeting. We have many great packages here at tasty table catering such as continental breakfast, bakers glory, or a breakfast sandwich buffet. These include variations of bagels, scones, danishes, muffins, eggs, and meats to get they meeting off to a tasty start. If it is an afternoon meeting during lunch time we also have hot and cold sandwich options perfect for the occasion.
