Toronto Meetings Waterfront

Make your Meeting the BEST with Toronto Meetings!

Business Meetings are essential for the health and well being of any business, but are also a big investment in time and money. You have to pay your employees to sit in on those meetings, while they could be out there working hard and increasing profits. So if you’re going to invest your time and money in these meetings, you’ll want to make sure you have the BEST meeting.

But not all meetings are created equally. There is a large gap between your standard meeting,  and the BEST meeting. And you definitely want all your meetings to be great; to achieve their goals, to be worth their time, and to have all participants come away with a sense that something happened, and the meeting was helpful.

And the most important part of that meeting (other than ending it well, click here to see our last post about that) is the environment you have the meeting in.

At Toronto Meetings we have the BEST environment.


The BEST rooms.

The BEST food.

The BEST views.

And all of this, just so that you can have the BEST Meetings.

So when you’re planning your next meeting, and are worried about the content, how to start and end your meeting, and the best way to keep it on schedule, you just let us worry about everything else.

From the set-up to the teardown, we will handle all the details that make your meeting, the BEST meeting.


How To Make An Effective Presentation In The Meeting Room

Whatever your philosophy is on making presentations in the Meeting Room there are some basic tenets that prevail. Here are Five critical points to observe when preparing a presentation.

  1. Research – Conduct the necessary research so that your presentation ideas are well adapted to your audience’s technical level and needs. Connect your presentation objective/message/idea to the interests of your audience. If possible, when preparing your presentation, gather info on the needs, age, educational background, language, and culture of the target audience. Even on the day of the presentation the audience’s body language will give cues that may require the you to adapt your presentation style.
  2. Compact – A good presentation should be focused and in iterative. There should be a preview, an ‘in-view’ (the actual presentation) and a review so that ‘the BIG idea’ of the presentation is communicated effectively.
  3. Engage – Use eye contact with your audience, face them squarely and smile. Your facial expression and posture will affect your tone of voice and the tone of the presentation. Avoid letting your voice trail off as you transition from slide to slide or segment to segment of your presentation.
  4. Rehearse – Practice the presentation to make sure it flows and to ensure you have allocated time for introductions, questions and answers. This is a good time to make sure that all tools and equipments are working well.
  5. Have Fun – Doable? Yes. Present in a way that communicates your passion for the topic. Energy and enthusiasm is contagious!! See?
