Welcome to the December issue of What's New at DeskDemon!
With the whole country still in the icy grip of the big freeze, being in a warm and cosy office seems like a pretty good idea! Especially when there's DeskDemon to turn to for news, great offers and all the support, advice and information a PA could wish for.
In our line up this month, we have a great offer from Marriott Hotels - for every 9 delegates or guestrooms you book, get the 10th free of charge between 1st January – 31st March 2011 at over 165 Marriott hotels across Europe.
Here's an exciting challenge for all PAs. QHotels are looking to crown Yorkshire's PA of the Year, and want to know what makes PAs across the UK tick, so complete the mini survey online - click here - and you could win a fabulous spa break with QHotels.
If you are responsible for booking flights, take a look at Centreline Air Charter's live Empty Leg Availability on its website www.centrelineair.co.uk. The new system shows when and where these cut price legs are available, and costs can reduce to a third of normal rates.
