As part of a campaign looking at the workplace of the future, Dragons' Den winner, Neil Westwood, discusses why there'll never be a completely paperless - or pen-less - world.

There’s no doubt that our workspaces and offices will increasingly rely on cloud technology. Anything written freehand – in meetings or brainstorms, for example – will be scanned using a phone camera and immediately stored in your personal cloud. Mobile apps will become more sophisticated and store any work you do, whether it be handwritten or typed on a computer, storing it directly in your chosen file location.

That said, people are never going to move entirely away from using pens and pencils. Not everyone can get to grips with complicated programmes like Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator – often it’s quicker and easier to simply draw a diagram free hand, or jot a quick note down in a meeting. It’s immediate and it’s personal.

People are also motivated by the quirky and the innovative. That’s why our Magic Whiteboard has been so successful. People can meet and share ideas just about anywhere there’s a flat wall using our product. It’s a fun way to get everyone coming up with new ideas outside of the office environment and without the need for a boring, everyday flipchart.

Likewise, products like our re-usable Magic Notebook are perfect for people who like to write things down, but are also concerned with recycling. They can be used over and over again as they simply wipe clean after being used.

Technology is here to stay, but old school methods with a twist will also continue to inspire people. There’s something satisfying and very personal about the handwritten word or doodle. After all, that’s where technology originally began.
