Cleaning the office, throwing together last minute presentations, booking dinners and events, organizing an itinerary- when you have a high-profile clientele visiting your office, there are many things that need to be done in order to impress them and ensure they have a productive and nice visit. We know how stressful it can be having clients visit the office, especially high-profile ones that require your company’s utmost attention. Follow our tips below on how to impress your high-profile clientele on their next business trip!
Have your entire staff dress professionally
Work dress codes have evolved over the years from business to casual business attire, with most offices allowing employees to wear jeans on a daily basis. In the event you do have high-profile clientele visiting, nix the casual dress code and swap it for either traditional business attire (men wear formal suits/sports jackets with ties, dress shoes and business shirts while women wear pantsuits or skirt suits with blouses and closed toe shoes) or a stricter business casual (men wear khakis or dress pants with collared shirts while women wear dress pants, skirts or dresses). When your high-profile clientele visits the office they’ll be impressed by how professional your staff is!
Plan a meeting outside of the office
No one wants to meet inside an office all day every day of a business trip; half the fun of traveling for business is exploring new cities and what they have to offer! Our beautiful city has plenty of options for entertaining your client: restaurants, golf, bars- the list goes on. Here are a few of our top picks for hosting a meeting outside of the office:
- 801 Chophouse– This steakhouse has a Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor, so you know it’s delicious! 801 Chophouse offers fine dining with only the freshest and finest meats, making it the perfect place to host those high-profile clients.
- Michael Smith– Nearly every Kansas Citian is familiar with Michael Smith, the first chef in Kansas City to win an award for “Best Chef in the Midwest”. Out-of-towners will be impressed and excited to dine at this fine restaurant located in the Crossroads.
- Staley Farms Golf Club– Sometimes you just have to step out of the office and treat your clients to a round of golf. The fresh air and activity gets everyone moving and feeling refreshed to talk about business matters. Staley Farms Golf Club is one of the nicest in our city and is sure to impress even the toughest clients!
By planning a meeting outside of the office, not only is your client going to feel refreshed, it also gives you an opportunity to step out of the office and experience a new environment that can spark new ideas.
Arrange for transportation
Clients visiting from out of town won’t be as familiar with Kansas City as you are, so arranging transportation for the duration of their visit will not only make them feel more comfortable, but will show them you care about their safety while navigating around town from their hotel to business meetings and events. Overland Chauffeured Services offers a corporate transportation service to meet the needs of your high-profile clientele. By choosing Overland, you’re choosing a transportation provider that will reflect your professional image and will ensure your clients arrive to each meeting in a timely manner. Our experienced and professionally trained chauffeur staff always puts safety first and offers an excellent experience for your clients by being courteous, knowledgeable and dressed in a traditional black suit uniform, a perfect fit for your high-profile clientele!

Anyone who isn’t familiar with Kansas City will be impressed if their transportation is arranged and they can avoid having to rent a vehicle and navigate around an unfamiliar city.
By following the tips above, your high-profile clientele is going to have an enjoyable business trip that will leave a lasting impression. All clients deserve to be treated well, but when it comes to high-profile ones, you definitely want to go above and beyond to exceed their expectations.
