Join our #beahappybiz Twitter party and win £200 of Apple vouchers


Exciting news: we have another Twitter party on the horizon. We'd love you all to join us and @Xero on Thursday 28 May between 1pm and 2pm to talk about how to #beahappybiz - and there's £200 of Apple vouchers up for grabs!

Xero believes that a happy business is a beautiful thing, and they want to hear about your working life and what you think makes businesses tick.

What does a happy working environment mean to you? Is it flexible hours, or having the latest technology to use? Perhaps it's the freedom to come up with new ideas, or the time to forge friendships with your colleagues? If you run a business – or if you've ever thought about doing so – what would you do to make it a happy one?


Xero's Business of Happiness initiative is all about championing small businesses and entrepreneurs across the UK, and they've been working with the master of happiness Dr Robert Holden on what it takes to #beahappybiz. According to their survey of UK entrepreneurs, 95% think that office facilities like software, technology and gadgets are important when it comes to creating a happy business, 83% say they're less stressed at work now than when they worked for someone else, and 88% say they enjoy a better home life with their partner and family.

Does this sound familiar? Or perhaps you've dreamed about striking out on your own and have some ideas for how you'd foster happiness at work? Join us on 28 May and let us know - we'd love to hear your thoughts and tips on how to #beahappybiz.

Everyone who takes part and uses the #beahappybiz hashtag will be automatically entered into a draw to win those Apple vouchers. See you there!
