Hi quick question.

I have a meeting with a Director of a company I work for soon.
I am a executive head chef. Is it OTT to arrive with a briefcase with all my work etc in it, as obviously being a chef, a briefcase is not one of my normal items i use.


Thoughts please.

(and no, there will not be food in the briefcase before some joker mentions it ;))

Do you need to carry any paperwork to/from the meeting?

Yes? Then a briefcase is fine.

No? Then you don't need a briefcase.

No, dont take a briefcase. Take a massive pile of paper in your hands and just dump it down on the table.
