The urban meeting culture

This week I am part of a new age movement that is spreading like a disease across the world. If you have ever walked into a hotel lobby, preferably in one of the international hotel chains in a reasonably big city, or perhaps even at the coffee shop down the street although this venue is usually a bit more lively and therefore not as ideal, you have probably seen it;
The ‘meetings’ with 2-4 people, about twice the number of cups of finished cafe lattes on the table and a couple of laptops, that seem rather spontaneous but of course have been carefully planned way in advance.
A good meeting venue is centrally located and easy accessible by public transport as you do not want to waste time driving. It is reasonably large with tables and comfy chairs as even though these meetings would not be about the state secrets, you don’t necessarily want to hear about the neighbours’ issues. Spread around the room and well located in relation to the tables there are power sockets for the laptop and perhaps to charge the mobile. The wi-fi is a given and of course it is of the highest quality. Free of charge is a great bonus and will no doubt pay off in coffee sales for the place in question. And yes, the coffee needs to be Italian and add to that some foccacias and paninis and I will be prepared to spend money here all day. As will many others. The number of drinks and sandwiches that you get for the price of a private meeting room is quite substantial!

Oh, subject for the meetings? Yes, we are recruiting new Squad Managers so I am in the process of meeting the most amazing people. Highly motivated, inspired and ready to get involved to give of their time. For the chance of being part of England Golf. That is pretty special!
