The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Mobile phone giant O2 is looking for a small business to go back in time to the 70s, while also experiencing the office technology of the future.

O2 will build a dual office space in central London this Autumn, and is looking for a small firm to work in both the 70s workplace and the futuristic office. The project is intended to showcase the wireless technology the company is developing, and how these advancements can benefit small businesses.

The mobile phone firm is looking for a small business with between five and 10 staff to take part in the project for two weeks in the Autumn. The chosen company will divide their time equally between the 70s office and the "office of tomorrow". All the office space, equipment and IT systems will be provided by O2.

O2 hopes that the scheme will generate great publicity for the small business involved.

This promises to be an excellent opportunity for a startup business to gain free PR and exposure, so if you're interested in taking part, contact Charlotte Greaves on 020 7331 5352 or email charlotte_greaves@uk.cohnwolfe.com.
