Most small business owners spend a lot of time in meetings, whether with colleagues or existing and prospective clients. However, all too often meetings to plan projects or examine progress can be less effective than they should be, with recent research suggesting that too much valuable business time can end up being wasted. Basepoint works closely with many small companies who rent serviced offices in our business centres, as well as hiring our serviced meeting rooms. We support our licensees in a whole range of business tasks, offering mentorship and networking opportunities. Here are some pointers on how to ensure meetings are both time and cost-effective.
