The great thing about business meetings is that they can be conducted almost anywhere, depending on the industry you are working in, of course. For many people, the traditional board room will be the most comfortable place to hold meetings in order to keep everything feeling professional and allow them to feel comfortable in a setting that they're used to.
However, particularly for those who are working in the creative industries, meetings can be taken away from the office, allowing you the chance to get some space to think clearly and chat to your client in a setting that will be more casual, taking away pressure for them and allowing you to make a connection that you just can't in a stuffy office.
There are plenty of options for creatives away from the office, but while some people will take their meetings to the golf course for an informal chat, for example, there are few places that are better to conduct a business meeting than over brunch. It's light, it's relaxed, and you can have the chance to chat freely in a different environment from what you're used to.
So if you are working in Fitzrovia, where are the best places to meet your clients for a spot of business brunch? We take a look at a few of the best options around.
If you really want to wow your business associate, then there will be no better place to sit down for a spot of brunch than Berners, which is a fantastically decadent setting.
