We’ve all heard the adage, “First impressions last forever”. Well, in today’s highly saturated market, it’s more of a reality rather than just an expression of speech. With the cutthroat competition today, businesses rarely get second chances to impress potential clients.
This is why organizations today do everything they can to ensure that client visits are pleasant and productive – from organizing dinners and activities, to putting together last minute presentations, to organizing itineraries.
Over the course of this blog post, we’ll list some of the best ways of impressing your high profile clientele.
Have Your Staff Dress Professionally For the Occasion
The dress code of the workplace has changed a lot over the years. Most companies today allow employees to dress casually for the sake of convenience and comfort. However, employees dressed in faded jeans and Nike Vandals don’t exactly reflect a professional and appropriate corporate image.
In the event of a high-profile client visit, swap your organization’s casual dress code with a traditional business or business casual attire. Believe us; a staff dressed in formal suits and polished dress shoes really makes a positive impression.
Plan the Meeting Somewhere Other Than the Office
Although the purpose of business trips is… well… business, nobody likes to sit in an office the whole day discussing business proposals, especially if they’re tired from travelling. A business trip is more than just work; it’s also about exploring new places and new things. So instead of trapping your clients into the office for the entirety of their business trip take them out for a fancy dinner or perhaps a round of golf. Maybe you’ll get them in a good enough mood to get the deal across the line, who knows?
Arrange VIP Transportation
Another great way to impress your high profile clients is to book a luxury chauffeur service for the entirety of their stay. Clients who’re visiting from out of town or abroad won’t be as familiar with the city as you are. Not only will a luxury transportation service enable them to travel around the city in comfort, more importantly, it’ll ensure that they travel around in safety. From picking up your important business partners and clients from the airport to taking care of all their transportation requirements during the entirety of the business trip, San Thomas Security can provide assistance with all your corporate transportation needs.
