Successful business outcomes

Engage and enable

Business makes the world go round, and the wheels of business never stop turning. Every day we come into contact with new business connections, and developing good networking skills is key to business success. A fundamental aspect is the ability to host a successful meeting with colleagues and associates, as well as existing and prospective clients and customers. It all comes down to good communication skills. You need to have the ideal environment to project the desired image for your brand or business, conduct fruitful discussions and negotiations and achieve successful outcomes.

This is where the Saxon comes in. Whether you are planning a major presentation that requires a tiered auditorium, a conference that requires seating for a large group of delegates, or a more compact, intimate space, we have the right venue, the right environment and right support structures.

To coordinate effective business meetings, it is important to create and achieve set objectives. Using efficient meeting processes can assist you with productive outcomes.


Use an agenda

A predetermined agenda will assist with keeping a business meeting focused and on track, in order to address one issue or related group of issues at a time.

Open discussion

It is important to encourage open discussion and allow delegates to express their views without personal opinions clouding business decisions.

Stay on track

A business meeting is a scheduled opportunity to resolve important issues. Keep the meeting focused and stay on schedule, avoiding long discussions that are off topic. Adopt a business culture of starting promptly and ending on time.

Professional tone

A business meeting should be conducted professionally at all times. Ensure that non-essential mobile devices do not interfere with proceedings.
