As a top London recruitment agency, we often hear from our temps in new jobs that they struggle to show clients around because they aren’t familiar with the city. But even those who have done PA jobs in London for years can become stuck for inspiration if their executive wants them to organise something different for clients. No worries—we’ve got some great ideas to share with you on different ways to entertain clients in London for 2020.
Take your business meeting to the sky
It’s not just romantics who hire a private capsule on the London Eye. In fact, the London Eye frequently graces the top of many visitors’ to-do lists when in the Big Smoke. A business meeting in the sky is an ideal way to mix business and pleasure, whilst showing off the best London sights.
Enjoy dinner on the Thames
Combine a client dinner with a unique London experience by climbing on board a Thames Dinner Cruise. The clients get to see the iconic Thames bank views while your executive discusses business. What’s more, you can be sure of a first-class dining experience. For greater privacy, you could also consider a private Thames river limo.
Go for drinks at the Sky Garden
While you can, of course, dine and drink within The Shard, we prefer to take our clients to the Sky Garden. From there, you see The Shard in all its dominant glory, but from high up. The views are incredible and the atmosphere is conducive to winning over even the toughest client.
Experience a different side of Mind the Gap
London’s tube network is infamous the world over. As a regular commuter, you’re probably sick and tired of it. But you can arrange for your executive to show clients a different side of the London underground—one that’s normally hidden away, via Hidden London. It’s simply fascinating.
See the sights in luxury
Forget crowded hop-on-hop-off buses, as they will only frazzle your boss and their clients. Instead, book a bespoke limo tour to visit the London sights, setting your own itinerary for the stops. There are countless limo companies to choose from. This way, your executive can “talk shop” and show the client the best that London has to offer.
London Landmarks afternoon tea
Even if London is putting on a poor show with the weather, you can still show clients the sights by booking in an indulgent afternoon with the very British tradition of afternoon tea. What better way to do this than at the London Landmarks afternoon tea at Town House Kensington.
See the museums after dark
Often, clients are excited to come to London, then they discover that their days are full of meetings and their evenings are spent unimaginatively dining or drinking. Instead, they can enjoy some of London’s finest museums at night. Arrange a trip for your executive to take their clients to a museum “lates” events, offered by various museums. Just look up what’s on when your client is in town.
So, the next time your executive utters the words “plan something different”, there’s no need to panic. You can still use the traditional sights of London to showcase your business and allow clients to spend time with your executive, but without doing the “same old same old”.
