One of the biggest challenges for start ups is convincing prospective clients that, although you’re a way off reaching the FTSE 100, you’re more than capable and determined to succeed in your specialism and service area.

As with most things in life, appearance is everything. Whilst the occasional coffee shop meet-up can do no harm, holding an important business meeting by the baristas could damage the other party’s perception of your company and cause them to question your abilities and resources.  

Meeting Rooms for Home-Workers

But what if you work from home? Inviting someone to your home office may be equally damaging to your professional appearance and reputation in the eyes of the other party. There is an alternative. Dedicated meeting rooms like those at our Abingdon, St Neots, Beaconsfield and Marlow sites provide an unbranded space equipped with all the facilities you’ll need to present your business at its best.

Meeting Venue Hire: is it worth it? 

If you’re a small business owner working from home, you might feel like hiring a meeting room is an expense you’re not yet able to afford – but you might be surprised how reasonable hiring a venue for a meeting is. For example, our rates start from just £11 per hour and you don’t need to be a tenant at one of our business centres to use them.

We’ve tried to keep our prices competitive to give small businesses and professionals working in the local area somewhere to meet with others, that doesn’t cost the earth but can make a real difference to how your business is perceived.

Meeting rooms at The Workstation can be hired on an ad-hoc basis and booked online or over the telephone, often on a moment’s notice. If you’d like to know more about our meeting rooms, visit our booking page, call 01727 260 177 or email
