Food makes everything better, but not everyone is a morning person. The question becomes how to make a breakfast meeting work for you. The New Psalmist Retreat and Meeting Center (NPRMC) in Baltimore understands the positive impact that morning meetings can have on your business, and that is why we offer a good selection of breakfast foods for you to choose from. Check out a few reasons why you should consider scheduling a breakfast meeting for your next conference, then contact us to request a proposal today!
Whether or not you consider yourself a morning person, you will probably agree that your thought processes and critical thinking skills are stronger in the morning than they are in the afternoon. There are studies to show that the majority of people perform better in the morning. Some of the toughest mental tasks are more easily accomplished at the start of the day. People tend to lose their focus and performance abilities starting around lunchtime, with a steady decline until the end of the day. Even with tightly scheduled business meetings, our internal body clocks are actually running the show, so consider making your next meeting a breakfast meeting at our conference center.
The Right Foods
While breakfast is generally a more casual meal, there are certain foods that you will want to avoid serving if you are a guest in a conference center. For example, pancakes with syrup are not generally the easiest food to eat when you’re trying to avoid messes and accidents. In addition, this could add an unexpected expense to your budget when you are charged for the clean-up of the space. A great way to completely avoid this problem is to order other traditional breakfast foods like fruit, oatmeal, and breakfast sandwiches. In addition to avoiding potential messes, your employees and customers will feel less concerned about spilling food on themselves. An added bonus is that the alternatives you will have served are better brain food options for everyone involved.
The Right Drinks
While a mimosa or an Irish coffee might sound like a pleasant way to start your breakfast, it is not appropriate for work-related meetings and activities. You put yourself at risk of being seen as unprofessional or creating the predicament of people returning to work with a buzz. Choose the path of safety and offer a variety of non-alcoholic drinks instead. While we’re on the topic of drinks, you should consider that not everyone enjoys drinking coffee. Make sure to offer some equally delightful hot drinks such as herbal teas, green teas, and black teas.
