Carols on the stereo, mince pies for breakfast, gingerbread for lunch. You get the picture. Which is why we’ve decided that one lucky business deserves a gift from the Small Business Santa.
Simply head over to our entry page, let fill in your details, and you could be in line to receive a beautiful Christmas hamper, worth £200, full to the brim with enough festive treats to satisfy the whole office PLUS £200 to spend on online marketing for your business.
With that in mind, we’ve done a bit of research into what makes a good team, and come up with the following qualities:
Yes, a team should be supportive – but good team members aren’t afraid to challenge each other, and get a little competitive. That spirited debate will lead to higher quality work in the long run.
Good teams have a mix of different personalities and strengths. The best teams will have introverts working with extroverts, creatives working with pragmatists, leaders working with supporters.
Good teams know what they’re trying to achieve, and how each of their roles will help them get there. Once they know what their goals are, the best teams will go above and beyond reach them.
The best teams have fun together. Being able to enjoy work makes the hard times easier, the late nights more bearable, disagreements easily diffused.
You knew this one didn’t you! Of course, at the helm of a good team is a good leader. Somebody who provides support and structure, feedback and direction.
So what are you waiting for? Nominate your team for the prize now!

Super helpful and easy to work with
"Recommend this company in a heartbeat - Nicole Borneuf was super easy to talk to, was not pushy in the slightest, very helpful and replied with all my questions very professionally and did all she could to help. I had to deal with a few companies to sort my business energy out, all but Nicole were too pushy for my liking and I refused to follow through with them. Thank Nicole - you are a credit to your company, thank you for making the stressful energy change so easy."This review was posted by Mia Drew on the 29th of March 2017
An Extremely Competent Company
"Switch my business has not only helped my SME secure a good energy deal for the second year running but Jessica swiftly found a alternative supplier for me when I was let down on the day of switching by the new contractual provider I had chosen some 4 months previously. Being suddenly out of contract and without provider is everyone's energy nightmare. Greatest thanks."This review was posted by S McMillan on the 29th of March 2017

Quick & Easy
"Kabibi was very helpful and the whole process was very efficient. The one small reservation I had was that I was phoned up by Kabibi almost immediately having received my online quote - which wasn't enough time for me to finish reading the quotes! Fortunately she was able to assist me in a greater savings on both Gas & Electricity, and so as long as the switchover is seamless I will remain very happy with the service."This review was posted by Amanda Brown on the 21st of March 2017
