Update July 1: the competition is now closed.

2020 will be remembered as the year that changed everything, with the ongoing pandemic likely to leave a legacy that will affect generations to come; it has changed the way we live, learn and work.

With this in mind, we want to find out more about your experience, as part of the Future audience. How well have you managed to embrace remote working in the last few months? What have been the primary roadblocks and main facilitators?

We've put together a few questions and would love if you could provide us with some insights into your daily working life.

The survey takes no more than five minutes to complete. To say thanks, you’ll be entered into our fantastic prize draw with a total value of more than $27,000, to be scooped up by a single reader.

If you want to be in with a shout of winning the prize, as well as sharing your opinion on your future and remote working, make sure you take part today before the survey closes on June 30th. Good luck!
