Why Not Get a Private Chef for Safe Client Entertainment?
Posted on Monday, October 26, 2020 by The Office Zen Master — No comments
At our PA recruitment agency, we know that those working as PAs in London are used to thinking creatively when it comes to client entertainment. With many favourite venues not having the same vibe due to social distancing or clients reluctant to meet in crowded places due to rising Covid numbers, they’re putting that thinking to good use.
One excellent solution they’re turning to is hiring a private chef. Private chefs can either come and cater within the office or even better, at your boss’ home. It’s an opportunity for client entertainment that ensures everyone feels safe whilst also make suring that business gets done.
Why you should organise a private chef for client entertainment
Even those who are temping as a PA in London can organise a private chef with confidence. There are numerous benefits:
- Private dining
Business deals aren’t always best done in public. By inviting the client to the executive’s home, they’ll feel honoured, but also have the opportunity for privacy, allowing work to be discussed without prying eyes or ears.
- Everything is considered
Your boss has gone on yet another extreme diet and the client is allergic to wheat. How do you ensure that this is an enjoyable dining experience and not an endurance test?! Private chefs are skilled at creating sumptuous menus that everyone will enjoy.
- You’re not left with the clear-up
Even with in-house catering delivered to the office, someone has to do the cleaning up. All too often, that falls to you — even though you’ve got that report to type up. A private chef usually brings an assistant, and they’ll leave your executive’s kitchen and dining room looking pristine. They may even provide crockery and cutlery as well as linens.
If you know that a particular client loves to push the boundaries of the business wallet, then hiring a private chef puts a limit on that. You’re in control of costs and there’s no chance of a merry executive accidentally adding a bottle of vintage wine to the bill.
With a private chef, there are no one-way systems; there’s no wearing a mask or worrying that the man at the next table seems to have a very nasty cough. Instead, your boss can entertain their client comfortably in their own home or garden with minimal risk.
There are a large number of private chefs across London. We recommend choosing one who definitely covers your executive’s home turf. Check out their reviews and contact them to find out more. Ask about menus and wines and what’s included and costs. You can then compare different companies and find the best one for your situation.
Private chefs in London have seen a huge boom in business since Covid, but this has predominantly been for private social events. Businesses that need to entertain clients in a Covid-friendly way are missing a trick.
