Youve heard of a working lunch. Youve done plenty of outward bound bonding. But how about doing deals during a spa treatment?
When I popped in for a pre-holiday pedicure at Cowsheds Soho outpost, my therapist told me their three plump white leather chairs (which are bliss, incidentally) are often taken up by entire groups of women, who order champagne and, rather than giggles and girl talk, get down to some serious business chat. Emerging with a deal done and polished fingers or toes, that sounds like the kind of a board meeting Id welcome an Outlook invitation to. Cowshed also reports that their Pretty Parties (whole spa takeovers with treatments and even supper) are a big hit with business networkers. You heard it here first: the pedicure is the new power breakfast.
