While some might claim that the setting doesn't matter, the work done by this statement can very quickly fade away once your surroundings become noisy, loud, too dull or inappropriate.
Even though work from home has become a more popular option since the pandemic, we’ve all experienced a video call being interrupted by crying babies, loud kids, construction noises outside the house or anything that is not appropriate for a formal meeting or business proposal. So, when carrying out a task as serious as presenting a business proposal, why is a workplace important?
First and foremost, when presenting a business proposal, you will be required to have people in your meetings both physically as well as virtually. This means you would want to have a proposal business address. A business address helps keep your personal home address out of your work life so your private life remains private.
In addition, a business address also makes you seem more serious and determined to some investors or clients, a home address might give that away. Finally, in case you have parcels or packages arriving, it’s better for them to arrive at a designated business office rather than your home, disturbing your family.
Whether you’re proposing your business plan to a group of people virtually through video calls or through physical meetings, a proper and well equipped meeting room becomes a necessity.
Co-working spaces provide well-equipped meeting rooms with meeting tables, chairs, video conferencing equipment, smart boards, white boards and soundproof walls. These are all essential so your business proposal goes unbothered and smooth.
In areas like your home, it’s difficult and very expensive to get these equipment and then keeping everything quiet is another issue.
When proposing a business, you can expect people to turn up from different areas of the country or even the world, depending on the nature and size of your proposed business. However, getting to your office is a major concern.
While some people might be taking the public transport, many will be driving. This is why you need to make sure your location is accessible by both and has parking facilities. These are not possible when you set up a meeting at your home or in a residential area.
Co-working spaces are located in great locations, near public transport and they also provide ample parking so your colleagues or guests have nothing to worry about.
Pantry & Refreshments
When holding important meetings, people need breaks every couple of hours. This means they will want to get a coffee, grab a snack or simply make some cup noodles. Having a stocked pantry is essential to catering to your guests and investors so they're well taken care of at all times.
Co-working spaces are ideal for pantries because most of them tend to be packed and consist of free-flow coffee, tea and other drinks.
So you can have food and snacks available to your business clients or investors without having to sacrifice the privacy of your home kitchen.
Culture is essential to any business and people grow better when they’re around a similar working culture. This is why a business proposal will have a lot of grounds when it's surrounded by working people and constant interactions from people of other offices and companies. Conversions are also driving factors.
All of these business interactions and conversations mostly take place in coworking spaces.
As seen, these are a few factors that make it essential for any serious meeting such as a business proposal to take place in a venue and environment that is appropriate. There are other factors as well such as overall noise, breaching privacy in your home and others.
However, with the popularization of co-working spaces, the issue of owning or renting expensive offices is gone and you don’t have to book any high-priced hotel venues either. Co-working spaces offer flexible plans by the day, week, month or every year according to your preferences at various rates.
Making a positive impression, being taken seriously while presenting your business proposal and working in a space that is strictly made for work, productivity and business interactions makes all the difference.
