Q. What exaclty does "creative meeting space" mean?
A. WorkShop offers a unique meeting experience that will engage your team for your entire meeting. Our creative space offers comfortable furniture, bright colors, lots of natural light, large whiteboards, and plenty of toys and games to grab and hold your team's attention. When you have meeting in your office or a location that feels like your office, expect to get the same results from your team. When you come to WorkShop, your team will temporarily stop thinking about the office pressures that distract from offsite meetings and focus on your meeting, which will lead to increased engagement and productivity!
Q. Is your meeting space availble to groups, regardless who leads the meeting?
A. Yes! Some groups use just our space; other groups use our space and facilitators. We partner with you to create a meeting experience for your specific group and can accomodate all of your group's needs.
Q. Do your facilitators travel?
A. Yes! Our facilitators lead progams at WorkShop and they also travel to whever you need them to be. Whether it's leading a program at your office in the Louisville area or traveling to meet your team in any location around the world, WorkShop facilitators can make any of our programs happen in any location.
Q. If we're meeting in your creative meeting space, can we bring in our own caterer?
A. It's best for you to use WorkShop's catering menu. This menu includes a variety of options prepared by six different local caterers. All of the meals are designed to fit a working business lunch or dinner and can include vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and nut-free options. Our lunches range between $13–$16 and inlcude delivery, tax, and tip and it's one less thing for you have to worry about as you prepare for your meeting. If there are extenuating circumstances and you need to bring in your own food or caterer, a service charge will be applied to your bill. Contact us if you'd like a copy of our current catering menu.
Q. What's included in the per person price for your meeting space?
A. Pretty much everything you need for a productive day. The per person price includes a continental breakfast (bagels with cream cheese, granola bars, fruit, yogurt, pastries, oatmeal, juice, and coffee), unlimited drinks (soft drinks, water, hot tea, hot chocoloate, and coffee), unlimited snacks in the room (candy & pretzels), snack basket in the afternoon (package snacks and fresh-popped popcorn), LCD projector, screen, one flip chart, whiteboard, markers, pens, name tags, 15-minute energizer, and other meeting supplies if you forget something. Extra flip charts are available for $30 pad; photocopies are available for $.10 or or $.20 per copy.
Q. What's this "15-Minute Energizer" that's included in the per person price for the meeting?
A. One of WorkShop's facilitators will come to your meeting and lead a short activity to help your team focus, get your team energized, or get your team talking. Sometimes this happens as the first thing on the agenda and sometimes it happens in the middle of a meeting to break things up. Our facilitators are usually flexible and can work with you to lead the perfect activity at the time that's best for you.
Q. What types of payment do you take and how do the payments work?
A. To book meeting space and/or facilitation, we typically get your credit card information and then send you an agreement to sign and return. Once the signed agreement is returned, we charge a non-refundable deposit, which is 35% of the cost of the meeting space (minumum $250). The balance of the invoice is charged on the day of service. If you prefer to pay by check, the non-refundable deposit is due before you are officially added to our calendar and the balance is due on the day of service.
Q. Did you used to be on Frankfort Avenue?
A. Yes! We moved to Butchertown in 2010 to expand our operations. The move enabled us to triple our meeting space so we can create more amazing meeting experiences for our clients.
