Soho Venues Hire Guide

Soho is one of the most lively neighbourhoods in London, with a buzzing nightlife and an eclectic mix of shops, bars, and restaurants to enjoy during the day. The area has long been associated with the arts, thanks to its proximity to so many theatres and galleries. 

But Soho's appeal goes beyond just being an artistic hub. Since it’s one of London's most diverse neighbourhoods, attracting both tourists and locals, it's a great place for businesses to thrive. And with a plethora of meeting rooms, you are sure to find the one that will be the best for your business.

When preparing for a meeting though, the location isn’t the only factor that will help you make it a success. Below are some tips that will help you have the most productive meeting:

Set a goal - All meetings should start with their purpose clearly defined. The goal of your meeting should always be known to you and the attendees, and it should be achievable within the time frame of that meeting. If you don't know what you're trying to achieve, then how can you have a productive session?

Decide on the participants - If you know the goal of your meeting, it’s time to decide who will participate in it. Invite those people who will add value to your discussion and whose insights are necessary to prompt the meeting forward. Avoid inviting people out of courtesy if their presence isn’t necessary. Too many people attending the meeting may cause it to sidetrack.

Assign roles - Once you know the purpose of the meeting and who will show up, assign roles to the participants. Clearly defined roles will help everyone stay focused on what they need to do and say. The roles can include one person who should be responsible for taking notes so that the information is recorded accurately. Another person can take on the role of facilitator, to help ensure everyone has a chance to speak and make sure the meeting stays on track. Remember to have one person keeping track of time so the meeting doesn’t drag!

Set up the agenda - One of the best ways to keep a meeting on track is to have an agenda. An agenda is a list of things that need to be discussed and decided during the session. It helps keep meetings from getting sidetracked or bogged down on side issues. The agenda also helps participants prepare for meetings by giving them some idea of what will be covered, so if possible, send it out beforehand to everyone attending.

Prepare the materials - If you’re going to be using some materials during your meeting, make sure they’re set and ready before the participants enter the room. Neither you nor the participants want to scramble around trying to figure out what you’re working on at the moment, so if you get everything ready before the meeting, you’ll avoid that.

Keep the time - If you want to keep your meetings as productive as possible, starting and ending them on time is essential. Allocate time to each point of your agenda, and keep track of time to make sure you’re not spending too much time on some tasks that don’t require it. If you have a meeting that runs over, it can be difficult for people to stay focused.

To make sure you have the best meeting experience, here are some things to avoid when in a meeting:

Don’t come unprepared. That sounds too obvious, but it’s one of the most common complaints when it comes to meetings. So respect the time of the people participating, and give your best at the meeting, even if it’s a short one.

Don't waste time on unnecessary details. Get right to the point and keep the discussion focused on what needs to be done. Even if you have some icebreakers or team-building planned for the meeting, keep them short and within the set time limit.

Don’t let people derail the meeting by going off-topic or getting into lengthy discussions that go nowhere. It’s important to give people time to express themselves and ask questions, so prepare some time for a Q&A and keep track of all conclusions.

Don’t forget breaks as they’re vital for keeping your team focused and on their feet. Even if you have a tight schedule and it’s tempting to pack as much work as possible into the planned meeting time, breaks will help you achieve your goals in a better and more effective way.

Don’t forget the follow-up. The most productive meeting will be the one that gives every participant an idea of what are the next steps to take. Send out a note after the meeting finishes so the follow-up is clear and known to everybody.

If you need some more tips, here’s a checklist to help you best prepare for your next meeting.

FAQs about Meeting Rooms in Soho

Why should I hire a meeting room in Soho?

Soho has been known for different things throughout for years, but what makes it such a sought-after meeting area today? Here’s a couple of the most important reasons:

Booked The Wardour at Century Club
Great location. Room was good size for number of people we had (19). Mira was so helpful and it was handy to have a phone in the room to call when we needed help. They were very accommodating to the various changes we were making to the number of attendees. They were very accommodating storing items we sent ahead of the day. Great they had milk alternative in the fridge.
