They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so it only makes sense to combine it with an important workplace event or meeting. You’re not only getting your attendees at a time when they’re the freshest and most alert, but you’re also able to ensure better attendance and outcomes by having it take place at a time when most people are available. Plus, there’s the added bonus of a delicious breakfast acting as a further incentive. If you’re planning a corporate breakfast and want to ensure it’s a success, here’s what you need to do:
- Be punctual and to the point
If you want to keep your attendees happy and ensure that you meet your outcomes, keep your corporate breakfast short and impactful, starting and ending when you intend to. This shows guests that you respect their time and are also organised, which is something sure to leave a lingering positive impression.
- Serve the right foods
Most corporate breakfasts serve food before the meeting, and it’s important that you choose easy to grab and go options that will ensure a smooth transition from buffet to boardroom. A great option would be muffins and bite sized pastries as well as other individually portioned eats. Messy or heavy food will keep attendees from concentrating fully, hampering their listening skills and attentiveness for any speech or presentation.
- Leave a lasting impression
While you don’t have to go all out and woo your guests entirely, ensuring that they have an overall positive experience will ensure that they feel inclined to attend future events. It’s also about networking and ensuring that your guests have the opportunity to make new contacts. Which brings us to the next point…
- Make it social
As previously mentioned, ensure that your corporate breakfast has time built in for people to mingle with each other. Often between finding seating and eating there’s little time for attendees to actually speak to each other. There’s no point having so many important people to your business in the same room if you don’t give them a chance to network, so be sure to accommodate this.
