When a company starts up, as business owner you decide on what you think are the perfect name and logo, encapsulating what you want to achieve. But, several years down the line, you’ve fallen out of love with your branding and feel it may be time for a change. This could be a brand refresh where you just rethink some elements, or a complete rebranding.
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.
