The Walk And Talk

Why your next meeting should be in a museum

For all you businessmen and women who spend their days conquering new ground, solving problems, and negotiating the next big thing, it’s time for a change of scenery.

What better than agreeing on the year’s biggest deal looking up at Emanuel Leutze’s ‘Washington Crossing the Delaware‘, or on your next partnership in front of Eugène Delacroix’s ‘Liberty Leading the People‘. What better for your deal pipeline than the quiet setting of museums, filled with the creativity that’s inspired millions before you.

We all bring creativity to our business dealings, so why not throw ourselves in the thick of it.

Museums are the guardians of the things that make us Us! They already contribute meaningfully to society’s exchange of ideas, so why not to your professional exchanges too. And we don’t mean by organizing an afternoon tour with a dozen clients cattled around by a guide. Where your offices and conference rooms fall short in fostering important relationships, museums compensate by affording you an original and personal exchange that can go a long way to achieving your strategic objectives.

And in addition to breaking away from “how pompous and artificial working life” has become, these are the perfect venues to gain perspective and empathy.

So for your morning meetings, chances are the museum down the street sits pretty much empty. Aside from maybe a class trip and a couple old people, tourists won’t have made it past the breakfast buffet and your less original peers are booking conference rooms just down the hall. And if hunger strikes or you’re in need of a caffeine boost, museums these days offer cozy cafés and delicious restaurants.

But admittedly museums aren’t for all meetings. They won’t do for those that require a projector or note-taking, nor will they work if you’re discussing top-secret nuclear launch codes. But if it’s a question of deepening important relationships, there’s nothing better than museums and their temporary exhibitions to create a unique experience from which to build on.

Quiet, creative and inspiring…your deal pipeline just got bigger! So for all the best shows in town, go to
