Helping your boss organise client entertainment can be a tricky task, particularly if the client is incredibly important to your organisation and your boss has to pull out all the stops to impress them. Many of you will be asked to help put together an itinerary for visiting clients and will have no problem arranging the clients flights, hotels and ground transport. But what if you have also been asked to arrange entertainment, dinner and all of their spare time while they are in London? Oh, and they are also bring their family with them. Great! Here are a few apps that will help you arrange their itineraries and also help you get a few entertainment ideas.
If you are in a new city or don’t know where to eat this is a useful app. You shake your phone and the app will suggest a restaurant in the area, you can also make a reservation using the app. This is great if your client around London and you dont know the area very well.
I love this app and use it all the time because I constantly get asked if I know any decent places for overseas clients to try out. This app allows me collect the address of all of those great restaurants in one place. You can search alphabetically or look on a zoomable map. When I read a good review I will add the restaurant to the app for future use.
Timeout London: Free
Another handy app if you have overseas clients in the office who are looking for something to do in the city. All of the latest exhibitions, theatre productions, and everything in between can be found on the Timeout app.
Addison Lee: Free
There are plenty of cab apps available. The Addison Lee app lets you track the car journey so you will know when the cab has arrived but also when your client arrives back to their hotel safely.
London Official Events Guide: Free
The app provides up to date information on what is happening in London, from exhibitions, theatre, music, galleries, museums and much more.
Open Table UK : Free
A great app for booking restaurants, even at the last minute. The app also gives users lots of dining options depending on the client and there are also lots of offers available.
Four square: Free
Four Square isn’t just for stalking your ex-boyfriend, oh no, it also has a lot of feedback on restaurants and their menus. I particularly like the thousands of comments from previous visitors. So if your boss is taking clients to a new restaurant you can recommend the best thing on the menu based on other patron’s feedback.
