We are delighted to announce the launch of a new look menu on 17th of May 2021. This coincides with the governments date when face to face business meetings and training events can resume.
Heath House Conference Centre in Uttoxeter, Staffordshire has already gained a fantastic reputation for food, and our new look menu is designed to take this to a new level.
Meeting organisers will be able to choose from three different menus.
The working lunch menu is one of our most popular options. It consists of sandwiches and chips…sounds simple, but these sandwiches are out of this world.
Fillings include things like grilled goats cheese with caramelised red onions or Cajun Salmon with sour cream, crispy capers, balsamic glaze or steak melt. Delegates can pre-order the filling of their choice. The sandwiches are served on homemade bread and come with an almost bottomless supply of our famous homemade chips…and it might surprise you to know that this coasts just £9.95+VAT per delegate…and that includes unlimited coffee and tea throughout the meeting. The full menu can be found here.
You might be wondering why we place such a significant emphasis on providing exceptional quality food. The answer is relatively simple. Food is a powerful tool which can be harnessed to improve the outcome of your meeting or training event.
Large tech giants like Google have led the way in channelling the power of food. Employees working in Googles headquarters are offered free food, prepared by chefs to improve happiness, well-being, job retention and productivity.
Food is a universal icebreaker. We all eat, and most of us love to talk about food. This simple fact can unite people, breaking down barriers and enabling them to get to know each other.
For many of us, food is the centre of family life. Sitting down to eat a family meal gives us time to catch up with each other. We use this time to share anecdotes about our day, exchange information, and deepen the bonds within our family.
Businesses can replicate this during team meeting and training events. By sitting down to share a meal together employees have the opportunity to take a break, relax, and engage in informal conversations. It is a chance to truly get to know colleagues on a personal level and to discover common interests. Essentially, sharing a meal is an opportunity to network, deepening relationships, building trust and strengthening company culture.
You can make your delegates, or employees feel valued by going the extra mile and including a fabulous meal at a training event, or a business meeting . By doing this, you haven’t just provided food, you have taken the time to provide amazing food. To spend the time doing this, you must care about how your delegates or employees feel. This is a subtle way of showing your delegates or employees that they are important. This simple act is likley to increase cooperation…you could say that they will be eating out of your hand.
