Many professionals are often in the position to become more familiar with the art of a business dinner. When first tackling the task, many can feel overwhelmed with the best approach and those seasoned in the art may like some pointers on how to change it up some. Today, we at A Limo World like to share some tips on the art of a business dinner.
Know Who is Attending Business Dinner
You may be tasked to invite someone that you don’t know, though you are likely the one that is sending out the invitations. Familiarize yourself with the guest list before you schedule the dinner. Do your research and find out as much as you can about your dinner companions using the tools you have such as Google, Facebook, and LinkedIn. This can help make conversation and better navigate yourself through the course of the business and meal.
Don’t Reschedule Business Meetings
Make certain the location, time, and day work for all guests before it is scheduled and once the date is set, avoid rescheduling, and only make exceptions for real emergencies. Rescheduling gives the impression of being unorganized and unprofessional. Guests may also build resentment for having their time not be respected. Plan 6-8 weeks in advance to give plenty of time to keep the date. If this is a business-casual dinner be sure to send out RSVP within a week of sending the invites so you can plan on the number. If it is a business meeting dinner, everyone will likely be there, and you will not need the RSVP step.
Learn about Dietary Restrictions of Dinner Guests
The business can be impacted of the meal is ruined because not everyone attending can enjoy the food. Ask all the guests for dietary restrictions before you choose the venue. Most restaurants can accommodate the majority of the restrictions, but it can help you choose a venue more appropriately. If you are catering the business dinner, you can ensure there are dishes available for everyone.
Be the First to Arrive to Business Dinner
The host should always be the first to be on location. This will you get prepared for the business aspects and the opportunity to learn the layout of the venue, such as where the restrooms are and if the location works for your needs. As guests arrive, you can take care of the seating promptly.
Corporate Transportation in Style
An important part of the business dinner is making a lasting impression and ensuring everyone arrives together and on time can be easily done with the help of luxury transportation. Booking a limo to pickup the guests and get them to restaurant or venue and making sure everyone gets home safely, even if they indulge in a few drinks, can help maintain organization and impressing the guests.
