The benefits of external meeting spaces

External meeting spacesWorking from home has many benefits,

such as fitting your working hours and your breaks

around your family life and other personal commitments.

And most people working from home would agree

that usually the benefits outweigh the drawbacks.

However, when it comes to conducting meetings at home, problems can arise, which is why so many people who work from home are choosing to use external meeting spaces in nearby towns and cities.

Today’s sponsored post from &Meetings looks at the benefits of using external meeting spaces:

1. The most important benefit is perhaps that you can conduct your meetings in a professional space without worrying about your home being presentable and formal enough.

2. Another great advantage is that you will have access to all the resources that you need. Wifi makes sure that you can conduct FaceTime or Skype video conference meetings.

3.You will be provided with all the desks, tables and chairs you need to lay the room out to suit your particular requirements.

4. Most providers of external meeting spaces also provide catering from basic tea and coffee facilities right through to sumptuous lunches, so you don’t need to worry about disrupting the meeting to put the kettle on!

5. In addition to this, you can focus on your meeting without having to worry that clients coming to your home will disrupt your family life.

There is of course a cost implication to bear in mind, but most external meeting spaces can be hired by the hour, which means you only pay for what you need. The cost is nominal when you offset it against the benefits that it brings to your business.

External meeting spaces are perfect for networking sessions, training courses, events, video conference calls and meetings.

Once you find one near to you that suits your requirements you’ll find that you rely on it more and more as a space in which to conduct your business without affecting your work/life balance. Your home will feel more like yours again (and you’ll also enjoy the opportunity to get out of the house!)
