How often do you make upgrades to your commercial office’s boardroom? Like many companies, it’s not usually until something breaks, or someone makes a comment that they take a good look at what high-level clients, board members, and other VIPs see.
If it’s been a few years, there’s a good chance that upgrading your boardroom will give you access to new technology that allows for even greater connectivity with people onsite and around the world. Not only will this help keep your VIPs happy, but you’ll also be able to see results in terms of efficiency and returns.
Think of it this way: a board meeting could potentially last for a couple of hours. Are you focused on what is being said at every moment? Not if you can’t hear the speaker or see the content being displayed. If you want to maintain the attention of the meeting participants, you have to provide a functioning and seamless A/V experience.
You Have To Welcome Their Devices
Nowadays it’s fairly common that meeting participants from inside the office and outside bring along their own devices, but there is no guarantee that everyone will be the same make and model. That’s why it’s essential to have a variety of connection and charger styles to ensure that no matter what they are using, participants can connect to the meeting.
You Have To Keep Things Simple
It’s likely that at least some of your board members are not technologically savvy, and therefore it makes it even more important that they can use devices they are familiar with. But you also don’t want them to have to jump through hoops to install programs or update components, so make it as easy as logging on and plugging in to get them connected.
You Need Good Display Screens
Imagine a scenario where you need to show a quick demo to the room, but your 15” laptop is the only screen available. Trying to make everyone crowd around means that no one will receive the full impact of your presentation, and a simple TV display screen could have solved this problem immediately.
