Innovate on the standard meeting with Naumi’s Zest room. Who needs a big boardroom table, and giant chairs when you could have a pool table and a bunch of bean bags! It will certainly help everyone in attendance to relax which in many cases leads to better business. The worst business decisions are made under stress. The Zest room comes equipped with a television, a flipchart with pens, a whiteboard with markers, conference telephone, high-speed wifi, and a coffee & tea station.
