Why Board of Directors Meetings = The Perfect Time for Updated Corporate Headshots

Board meetings can be hectic. There’s always a full agenda of pressing business to get to, and everyone has other places they need to be as soon as the meeting as over. You barely have time to greet one another before everyone is off in another direction (and probably to another meeting).

With this in mind, it might seem strange, but this is one of the best times to take pictures. It’s true: Board of Directors meetings are the perfect time for updated corporate headshots.

Here are a few reasons why this is the case:

1. All the VIPS are in one place.

By their very nature, boards of directors are made up of busy, successful people. They all have tons of things to do and people to see, so it’s next to impossible to get them all together – unless it’s mandatory.

When you have a board meeting, half of your work is done for you already. Simply add taking photos to the agenda, and let them know that they’ll need to stick around for a minute or two after the meeting wraps up.

This saves you the time and trouble of tracking everyone down individually, and it prevents them from having to carve out time in a hectic workday.

2. Everyone is on the same page, appearance-wise.

Have you ever seen corporate headshots that are all over the place in terms of appearance? One person has a suit and tie on, the next person is in khakis and a polo shirt, and then there’s the picture of the guy on a fishing trip.

This is not a good look for your business. It says you can’t be bothered to put together professional, top-notch photos of some of the most important people in your company.

It’s an even worse look for the people that weren’t dressed for the occasion. No matter his title, the person who was photographed in shorts and a Hawaiian shirt is going to have a hard time being taken seriously.

At a board meeting, everyone is already dressed for business. You get all the board members looking their best and most professional. Again, this makes it easier for you, but more importantly it makes them look better.

3. Great corporate headshots build trust.

Like it or not, people will judge you based on your appearance. Your employees want to know that the people in charge of the company are intelligent and business-like. Your clients want to know that you take their business seriously.

A stately, refined corporate photo will send all the right signals about you and your business. It will help put people’s minds at ease, and make them comfortable with you – all before you ever step foot in the room.

This is why your board meeting is the ideal place for a photo session. Everyone already has business on the mind – and that will come across in the picture.

Yes, an amateur could produce a decent headshot with a little work, but that is not the image you want to send.
