Starbucks offers meeting room, but do they give you a professional look?

It was recently mentioned to me that Starbucks coffee shops has some locations with private meeting rooms and wireless internet access. While it sounds great to be able to go to a local Starbucks and reserve a private meeting space, but how professional does that come across to your clients? I know when I want to have a business meeting and I do not want to bring people into my home office, I can reserve a meeting room at my downtown Toronto office space. As a office space Toronto client, I am able to have free Toronto meeting space. When I was a Virtual office Toronto client, I only had to pay a few dollars to book a meeting room when I needed it. Now Telsec business centre is offering low priced meeting room rentals to non clients. You do not need to have an office or a virtual office at...

office space Toronto Christmas party

This blog writer recently attended the Telsec Christmas party for its clients. I observed a number of things that truly showed me why many of the clients who have office space Toronto at Telsec, have been clients for quite a while. Everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves, the clients who have been office space clients for a long time, not only interacted with each other, but they were happy to meet newer clients.  While everyone was enjoying themself, many were also taking this as a networking opportunity. Clients were meeting potential customers and future vendors they did not know were just down the hall from them. One new office space Toronto client, who just upgraded from being a virtual office Toronto client, harped how much more productive they had become by moving out of their ho...

Are you more sick of hearing about the Tiger Woods affair or hearing Christmas music on the office radio.

Are you more sick of hearing  about the Tiger Woods affair or hearing Christmas music on the office radio. It seems you cannot turn on the radio without either hearing Christmas music on every station or talk about Tiger Woods affair on the stations that do not have Christmas music on. Do not get me wrong, I like Christmas music for 3 or 4 days leading up to Christmas Eve, but not a month of the same 8 or 10 songs being repeated. Why do all the non music radio stations think I am interested in the details and hearing the answering machine message that a billionaire athlete leaves for his mistresses? There has to be more important things for the media to cover. I am just glad when I get out of my car and get into my Telsec office space rental, so that I can listen to what I want to listen t...

Telsec Toronto Office Space is Open on US Thanksgiving

Many of Telsec’s clients are US based companies utilizing Telsec as there base of operations in Canada. When asked how they will be spending Thanksgiving, the American citizens who work in Toronto at their Toronto office space, had a variety of answers. One office space Toronto client who hails from New York City told me that they have an early morning meeting in their Toronto office space, but did not want to miss the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade. Their plan is to take a mid morning flight on Porter Air out of the Toronto Island Airport to New York, spend the day with some family watching the parade, then taking a late afternoon flight back to Toronto to attend an another evening meeting. Having an airport only minutes away from their downtown office that has frequent flights to...

NASA found water on the moon

All the buzz the past few days around the water cooler was the fact that NASA had found water on the moon. This scientific breakthrough does not mean that you will be seeing bottles of Moon Water showing up at a variety store near you any time soon. This news does tell us that at some point the moon could have sustained life or may eventually be colonized. When will the first Telsec office space on the moon be available, I can not say. While Telsec can not yet offer office space on the moon yet, they can offer a great office in downtown Toronto. No, they do not have moon water yet, but they do have cold filtered water available in both kitchens. It may be a number of years until Telsec can offer moon offices with a view of the earth, I can tell you that some clear sky evenings when I am wo...

Being only blocks south of the city core saves half an hour of commute

Today I left my home at the same time as my neighbor and we even took the same route right up until I turned south on Yonge Street to get to my downtown Toronto office space at 1 Yonge Street. I was in my office about 30 minutes when I remembered that I forgot to ask my neighbor if  I could borrow his electric leaf blower tonight. So I called his cell phone.  It seems that he had just arrived at his Toronto office space in the core of the city, he had been stuck in downtown traffic for 25 minutes. So being only blocks south of the city core saves half an hour of commute. My neighbor is an outside sales representative and works in a satellite office from the rest of the company, just so he can be near his downtown Toronto clients. The funny part of this story is that his biggest client is l...

Happy 40th Anniversary Sesame Street and Happy Birthday Big Bird

This year marks the 40th anniversary of Sesame Street. While the 40th anniversary show does not air until November 10th, Google is celebrating today by having Big Bird’s feet as its latest logo doodle. It took a while, but I noticed that the doodle looked a bit different than there usual themed doodles. Usually the letters are in the google themed order – blue, red, yellow, blue green red – but not this time all the letters are yellow in honour of big bird (whose feet are part of toadays logo). If it was not enough for First Lady Michelle Obama appears in the first episode of Sesame Street’s 40th season? Even United States President Barack Obama will be opening the show with a brief video. According to one news source I read, he will say the something like “Todays S...

A Quick Thinking Receptionist Saved me a Client

I tell my clients that I am not always in the office and that they should not just show up unannounced. Then you get that one client who thinks because they are in the area they can just show up.  I am not an office client at Telsec, I am a virtual office client. I will sometimes use a boardroom or meeting room there, but for the most part my office is at home. Yesterday an out of town client flew into Toronto via Porter Air (at my recommendation), he figured that since my office was so close to the city centre airport that he could stop by before he went to his primary meeting. When he arrived at my office, the receptionist quickly realized that I was a virtual office client and told him I was not in the office at that time. She then called me on my cell phone and told me someone had show...
