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

By Office Space TorontoIn standard14th December, 2009

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 1 Yonge Street, to be able to rent a meeting room by the hour or by the half day (for several meetings). Being able to rent a meeting room in a professional office space in Toronto at a prestigious downtown address, gives your company a professional look and lets your clients believe you have an office in this great facility.

To find out more about renting a Toronto meeting room in a professional office business centre, call Lindsay at (416) 363-9035 or email Lindsay@telsec.net.

why use a Starbucks meeting room and have to pay $4 or $5 for a coffee?

Because remember, at Telsec the coffee and tea are always complimentary.

  1. Meetings and coffee have always gone together and that’s why Starbucks is on the right track with this one. Many business meetings today are informal already. Cost effective or not carrying on a meeting via Skype or another video conferencing software is extremely informal. So why not keep with a little tradition; keeping the coffee and losing the boardroom. Where is it written that it’s against business meeting protocol that meetings can’t be held in public establishments? So it’s okay for the CEO to participate in a meeting while at his summer home in the Hampton’s but it’s not okay for the rest of the group to participate at the local Starbucks cafe enjoying their personalized cup of java. The math just doesn’t workout on that one. I predict this trend will catch on and Starbucks won’t be the only coffee house running it’s own personal conference center.
