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.
Thanks to everyone who responded to Canon's recent print survey - you can read the results here. It's your last chance to take part in Sharpie's online drawing game to win an Ipod Nano - the competition closes at the end of this month.

|Canon Reveals PA Survey Results|
Big thanks to everyone who responded to the Canon survey on business printing, which covered topics such as what is important when purchasing a printer to what types of document you print - we are still waiting to see the pictures from one PA who had to print pictures of her employer’s dog in various different outfits!

|Time Management - Time Is Money, So Save Your Money|
I've known people who roll their eyes when someone mentions 'time management,' and mutter under their breath, "I don't have TIME to worry about time management." The problem with that attitude is that good time management doesn't have to take much time or effort at all. The changes you make in your habits don't have to be huge. Even small changes can make a big difference when added together.
|The Top 10 Most Awful Corporate Gifts|
We've all heard the expression, "It's the thought that counts".
But, it's not completely the case. The reality is that if you want to make a long lasting impression on your valued clients or perhaps employees, you may want to give it a little forethought. To the receiver, gifts convey a good deal about the gift giver. Really think about it, when you have been given a present that you really felt was truly appalling, exactly how did you view the individual once they gave you the awful present? Did the thought "What were you thinking" pop into your head?
|Part-Time Workers Earn Third Less Than Full-Timers|
The 36 per cent pay gap between part-time and full-time workers is the main barrier to closing the gender pay gap and tackling in-work poverty, the TUC says.
The warning comes as the Office for National Statistics publishes its latest annual pay statistics.
|Restaurant Quality Food Delivered to Your Office - Offer!|
Hungry? I know I am, where did this cold wet weather come from? It’s making me reach for the biscuit tin, or chocolate bar, not to mention Mary from Accounts birthday cake sitting in the kitchen – is this a familiar feeling and do you do the same?
But, stop, you don't have to do that when you can order great tasting food that can be delivered direct to your office - and take advantage of a special offer!
|PA Review - Park Plaza Hotel Victoria|
|'After a hectic week at work, I took the short bus ride from my Southbank office on a Friday evening to the Park Plaza Hotel at Victoria. The hotel is situated in a great position; only two minutes walk to Victoria Station with easy access to the Gatwick Express, overland trains, the tube and a constant stream of eager black cabs outside the hotel.' Read Alison Boler's, PA at ITV Network, full review here.|
