Best Offsite Venues for Executive Meetings

Executive Meetings

Executive meetings are your typical meetings. There aren’t nearly as many graphic presentations, financial analysis and heated arguments. These chief officers, along with the division heads, and the board of directors tumble in cerebral discussions to plan strategically a company’s future, including investments in the hundreds of millions of dollars, corporate restructuring or bank loans for massive capital expenditures. Convening a firm’s greatest minds in one room requires the perfect location for a productive outing.

An offsite executive meeting with the top guns and corporate lawyers goes beyond financial and non-financial reporting, and deals with the company’s long-term strategic plans, goals and tactics. It is an immersion of countless deliberations, accurate figures, historical data, emerging markets, industry trends and other critical aspects with the mission of finding where and how a company will be moving forward in the next ten years or more. The top guns convened by the chief executive team up to discuss in detail the roadmap that the entire company will be working on the first coffee brewed after the strategic planning.

An in-house boardroom or an expansive conference nook might be a perfect spot for a brain exercise. But, executive meetings for strategic planning are usually preferred to be done off site where the leadership houses for days, battles analytical conversations and come up with a consensus on all the critical aspects of a company’s future. If you are looking for one hotspot that can make an impact to the management team, why not try these unique venues that do not just provide the corporate vibe and the necessary amenities but also to harness the individuality of each executive.

Château de Pizay (France)

Although the place can be ideal for romantic getaways, the hotel situated at the heart of the Beaujolais is undeniably a great location for strategic planning. Away from the hustle and bustle of urban setting, Château de Pizay is a historical venue that was built since the 11th century and houses hectares of vineyard, French garden, artist gallery, a spa, lounge bar, gourmet restaurants in outside terraces, wine cellar, outdoor pool, a helipad and spacious suites all in one of the region’s largest estates.

Grand Luxor (Spain)

The Mediterranean side has also been an attractive location for executive sessions and the mammoth, pyramid-like architecture of Spain’s Grand Luxor at the heart of Costa Blanca might be the next fitting venue. The five-star hotel does not just parade an architectural masterpiece but also combines the latest technology, luxurious rooms, outdoor leisure and a strategic location near the best beaches, mountains and other attractions that can not be equaled by its peers.

The gigantic space has been generous to meeting rooms as it allotted around 80 to 450  square meters of floor area and seven meters of high ceiling with an independent entrance, full equipment, natural lighting, accessible by vehicles and outdoor terraces for dining that allows you to see a panoramic view of the Mediterranean without having to leave the place.

Dundas Castle (United Kingdom)

The magnificent Scottish castle build in the 8th century is for exclusive use of any events including successful business meetings. The five-star, 400-acre giant estate has a lot to offer more than just a historical castle but full amenities that allows companies to mix work with leisure. Dundas Castle offers several rooms with different spaces and set-up for confidential meetings.

The castle is home to 17 unique and lavish rooms that will take you back to Shakespearean era of decors, linens and style. The dining is assured to be of a five-star flair while the outdoor is as stunning as the indoor. The estate has also prepared both relaxing and invigorating activities outdoor that include a nine-hole golf course, whisky tasting, croquet lawn, speed boating, quad biking, mapped walks and tennis.

It may three days to a week for the executive team to design the company’s long-term goals and discuss the roadmap that will put the firm moving in the next ten years. Whether they spend it in a theater hall or in a vineyard, the most important thing is that these top guns will be able to sit down in productive conversations to successfully and strategically plan the company’s future.
