This blog was written by our member Julie Russell from June Studios. Julie recently used our boardroom for a workshop event she ran for her clients at Workplace. Over to Julie . .
I have been a member of workplace for a few years now. I love their business lounge and can often be found meeting clients or working from here whenever I am in Manchester City Centre. It's location is so central. There are a number of train stations and other transport links really close and it has a few really great options for room sizes and layouts. So was the obvious choice for us when we needed meeting space.
I have been so impressed with how the Workplace team worked with me to make sure my event seamless. I wanted to share my experiences here:
As soon as I knew there was going to be a key session with the client I gave the workplace team a call. I knew I would need a meeting room in the heart of the city centre.
The team confirmed my meeting slot and sent me a follow up email. At the time of booking we discussed how many people would be attending and what refreshments would be needed. I wasn’t entirely sure at the time but I gave them a rough estimate and then a few days before they followed up to make sure that the catering and room were to be set up correctly.
I needed the room set up for a workshop so the team and I discussed which of presentation, boardroom or cabaret style would be most appropriate. There were options on the lunch catering and nothing was too much trouble even the dairy-free, gluten-free, & vegan options were all catered for.
On the day of the event
My team arrived 30mins before the meeting started and the Workplace team were so great at helping us set up. They made sure we had all the adapters and technical support we needed. We were put as ease as technology fails can be a real stress when you need things to run smoothly.
When the clients arrived they were greeted by the Workplace team at reception and provided with refreshments in the lounge. Our guests were looked after so well. The Workplace team discreetly let us know they have arrived so we could get ready to start.
At key intervals through the day the team provided us with refreshments when needed.
When lunchtime arrived we were greeted by a buffet laid out and prepared by the workplace team- what a spread!
Winding up the day
At the end of the day the Workplace team helped with the clean up of the room and made sure that we had collected up all out materials. The day was a massive success! It was a Friday it was time for a drink! It was perfect that we could store our materials in the lockers provided whilst we went out with the clients.
