Garner some Superbowl ‘Star Power’ with a Prime Office Space or Virtual Office in Toronto

, ,

Indianapolis, the host of Superbowl XLVI won’t have the club or luxury hotel clout of former host cities but will celebs and the media clamour to the city this weekend?

Yes.

Whether you’re the ‘Indianapolis’ or the New York Giants of your industry, the way to get clients making a bee-line to your home office or office space is to unify clients around what they’re passionate about, i.e. quality service and products. How do you communicate quality to prospective and current clients? Firstly, a professional business image is critical to what your prospect feels compelled to do once they’ve come into contact with your business and have heard your call to action.

A central business address in downtown Toronto, professional reception service and an impressive business environment, meeting rooms space and office space speak volumes before you even meet face to face with clients. A professional image increases prospects’ expectations about how you conduct business.

What does Indianapolis teach us about image and impressions? Impressions are, simply put, implied promises. Superbowl implies delivery of great sporting entertainment, great half-time commercials and live performances. Regardless of the name of the city, the Superbowl’s promise trumps the lack lustre celeb roll call of Indianapolis. Even if a business is a young start-up or a small local operation there is no reason why smaller operations like these can’t make a great professional promise to clients and a promise that rivals that of more established players in your industry.

How is Your Office Space Etiquette?

We recently invited image consultant, Nicole Schwartz to be keynote speaker at one of our weekly Lunch and Learn seminars at the Rostie Group. Her presentation was entitled “How to Make Friends Quickly and Influence People”. While many rules of etiquette appear to be ‘common sense’ there are many things that aren’t as obvious or that we just haven’t thought of because of the level of comfort some of us are accustomed to, even in a professional environment.

Here is Nicole’s presentation on Slideshare.

Office Space Etiquette in Toronto

Below are THREE additional rules specifically for your daily manoeuvres through your team room, in Toronto, or wherever you hang your bowler.
1. Walk around the partition  – don’t pop your head over your neighbour’s cubicle or peek into their workstation.

2. Stagger Lunch breaks – unless there’s a specific reason not to in order to provide everyone a few minutes alone at their desks.

3. Don’t invite yourself to conversations you hear over the wall. (self-explanatory)
