Get our Christmas hold music in just a couple of clicks.

The festive season is finally upon us, which means this Friday and Saturday will see workers up and down the country head out for Christmas parties. And as the wine flows, tongues will be wagging with tales of unspeakable acts involving the photocopier, and co-workers caught under the mistletoe.

All of which is enough to leave you bereft of festive spirit before the tinsel is on the tree (unless you read our office party survival guide, that is).

But ’tis still the season to be jolly and all that, so get your festive groove on and spread that seasonal cheer by changing to our Christmas hold music…

Belgium has some strong trade links with the UK – dating back as far as the 1st century  – and around 8% of Belgium’s exports are to the UK, with around 5% of the country’s imports going in the other direction.

And although the country sits almost within touching distance of the South East of England, the stretch of water dividing the two countries means commuting between them isn’t the most straightforward of journeys.

So if you need to keep in touch with colleagues or clients in Belgium, why not try setting up a conference call? It’s cost-effective, convenient and requires nothing more than a landline or mobile phone.

Bahrain is one of the most important economic partners and bases for UK companies in the Gulf and the two nations have always had a very strong bilateral commercial relationship.

Around 100 UK companies have set up base in Bahrain as the country is a major trading hub and financial centre in the region, with one of the most open economies and a liberal tax regime.

Sat in the heart of the European mainland, Austria is a landlocked nation of around 8.5million people and the UK is one of its major trading partners. The UK is Austria’s eighth largest export destination and its fourth largest export market for services.

So if you do business across Europe, there’s a decent chance you have connections in Austria.

Although travel time between the two countries is just a shade over two hours, constantly toing-and-froing between London and Vienna is hardly a cost-effective way to keep in touch. Communicating via international conference call, on the other hand, is both cost-effective and convenient.

And here’s how you can do that in just a few simple steps using nothing more than a landline or mobile phone…
