British Gas Business Desk Landscapes Competition

Your desk can be the main area where all your communication and work occurs. It is a place where you can sit down, concentrate and get down to business, but what does your desk say about your personality?  Whether your desk is in the middle of an open plan modern building, or in a purpose designed home office, your desk is a very personal area. British Gas Business recognises this, and is sponsoring a competition to discover the desk landscapes of SMEs and business owners across the country and how they can be transformed.

How have you designed your desk?  Is it just the standard laptop or monitor, telephone and Post-it notes? Or have you added your own touches – a picture of the kids, a plant or a favourite item?

Desks can be unique and individual spaces. They‘re often where people spend most of their week, so it has to be an area where people feel comfortable to work. But how many people actually take the time to keep their desk organised, their calendar up to date and to store all their miscellaneous items in a designated drawer? Who’s got the latest gadgets to keep business electricity costs down?

British Gas Business is teaming up with Love Chic Living and Heart Home to offer bloggers the chance to win £500 vouchers. Just transform your desk by decorating it in a way that speaks about you or your business and take a before and after picture. Send us your pictures; with a brief description of what you did, as well as how and why you did it. Maybe you already have a unique work space that you want everyone to see?

The most creative ideas will be chosen as the winners and will be picked by Love Chic Living and Heart Home. Submit your entries to one of the blog sites by 2nd May 2014, to be in with a chance of winning the prize, as well as having the stand-out desk in the office!
