If the current pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that we are capable of a quick pivot. Business meetings, book clubs, music lessons, even bank appointments have all become video calls. Despite that, there remains importance in seeing and meeting people face to face. Your concern may be “Where can I meet with my colleagues or business associates and be safe about it?” Well, that’s where we come in.
Since the outset, here at Coastal Inns, we’ve upped our already rigorous cleaning program. So you know that when you’re in our company, whether it’s in one of our guest rooms or one of our meeting rooms, your safety is our priority.
Meeting in person, face to face with someone is optimal. It allows for clearer communication by giving you the opportunity to hear inflections, and watch body language. While those things on their own aren’t a be-all, end-all, using all three together helps you understand completely where the other person is coming from.
Meeting face to face also helps build relationships. While there is validity in meeting and knowing someone virtually, 85% of people believe that face to face meetings help build stronger relationships. Meeting in person also helps eliminate distractions, making the meeting more productive and focused! It’s easy to get sidetracked by new emails, IM’s and other work when you’re meeting virtually.
Do you need a meeting space? Coastal Inns has meeting spaces, located conveniently throughout New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. If you have questions about our accommodations and amenities, or just about how we keep you safe, let us know.
