Taking clients, or potential clients, for lunch is all part of everyday business. But for a more formal type of meeting you don't want food distractions or background banter interrupting your focus. In the "good old days," rumor had it that successful entrepreneur's discussed business on the golf course and golf in the office. Even if this was true, things have changed now—and changed a lot. To begin with, the pace of doing business is much faster, less patient and far more technologically advanced. First encounters matter more today than they ever did. And the window of opportunity to make a great first impression is fleeting at best. There is a glitch in that new paradigm—many independent professionals and small businesses don't have a traditional office to wow new clients. The solution, therefore, is to exploit the advantages of a coworking center.
How Meeting Clients in a Coworking Center Helps
Virtual office solutions and coworking centers, such as Office Evolution Hackensack in Bergen County, NJ, are here to help. For attorneys of small firms and other solo professionals, coworking spaces offer the ultimate compromise. They let you get out of the home workplace or create a satellite office without you having to invest in a traditional office. Meeting clients at your private residence doesn't exactly ooze with confidence and professionalism—no matter how nice your home is. And committing to a conventional lease is often not practical, at least not from a financial perspective for new or small businesses.
On First Impressions
Impressions start long before that first meeting. Your company stationary, business cards, phone manner and a plethora of other things all contribute. Virtual office solutions offer a complete business package and not just impressive meeting spaces (more on that shortly).
Don't have your own office? Don't worry. Here's a quick list of other business solutions for mobile workers in and around Bergen County in New Jersey. Our coworking and virtual office memberships offer members more than just impressive spaces to meet clients, such as:
- Business mailing address, with mail forwarding
- Virtual receptionist (phone answering) service
- Coworking workspaces to get work done
- Notary in house
- Staffed front desk to greet your clients
- Print and copy machine
- Beverage bar
Even if you work from home a lot of the time, no one needs to know. As far as others are concerned, your business address is the professional one we provide, in a proper business location. You can use this on all your stationary, business cards and company accounts, etc. Mail forwarding means you never have to worry about missing an important letter, no matter where you happen to be in the country. And our virtual receptionists can answer all your business calls for you. This will free up your precious time so that you can focus on more important matters like developing your business.
Meet Clients in "Professional" Meeting Rooms

For as long as you need the space, it feels like your own personal meeting room, and that's just what it is. We also provide a complimentary beverage bar so that you can offer your guests a hot coffee or other drink on the house. A little forward planning is all it takes to impress prospects in your meeting room. And it is yours, for the duration that you rent it, which can be from as little as 15 minutes or the entire week. Our meeting and conference rooms and private offices are all plug-n-play ready, fully-furnished and include everything you need to be uber productive right away.

- Convenient location with lots of parking
- Professional and lasting first impressions
- Option to set up rooms to meet specific needs

The best way to impress your guests is to do a little forward planning before the meeting. In other words, know what you want with regards to seating, equipment, food and so on. As long as you know what you want, we can provide it. The first thing for you to do is ask yourself what kind of meeting it is. For example:
- A meeting specifically for sales pitches
- Discussions, exhibitions or presentations
- Team briefings
- Training and educational sessions
- Brainstorming groups
- Signing agreements and binding contracts
One thing is certain, and that is a well-prepared, well-presented meeting in a professional setting is light years ahead of anything that can occur at the kitchen table or local coffee shop. When you step into an Office Evolution meeting or conference room it has a direct impact on how you feel and perform. Your leadership and attitude as the meeting leader will thrive in these professional spaces. Our members get to reserve meeting rooms in advance, which means they don't have to worry about available seating, distractions or looking unprofessional. This allows you to then get on with whatever's on your agenda.
