Where do you work? See the desks of Arianna Huffington, Richard Branson, and Deepak Chopra

Do you like to spend your working day outside, standing up at your desk, cuddling animals, or collaborating in creative spaces? This is how some of LinkedIn’s top influencers like to shake things up.

On Tuesday, LinkedIn published a photo series called Where I Work, showcasing 50+ places where big ideas are born.

The collection features more than 50 prominent people from the LinkedIn’s Influencers Network showing where they like to work, and some words about what is important in their working environment. The collection includes people such as UK Prime Minister David Cameron, CEO at LinkedIn Jeff Weiner, host of Bloomberg West Emily Chang, and many others.

The LinkedIn Influencer’s Network includes over 200 thought leaders who share original content with their followers, and since its launch in October 2012 has shared 9,300 posts to 9.5 million followers in total.

Below are some of the most interesting workspaces in the collection.


Richard Branson, Founder at Virgin Group

Where I Work: Surrounded By People (and Swimming in Tea)

Having colleagues nearby — whether at the beach or in a crypt — means the ideas are always flowing.


Arianna Huffington, President and Editor-in-Chief at The Huffington Post Media Group

Where I Work: A Fishbowl Into the Newsroom

My office has views of Broadway and the HuffPost newsroom. It’s all about transparency. I can see out, and everyone can see in.


Tom Keene, Editor-at-Large at Bloomberg Television & Radio

Where I Work: I Have a Certain Advantage

On my desk sits the Bloomberg Terminal, my lifeline for information on everything from the state of the eurozone to the bio of that pesky guest on TV.


Tim Brown, CEO at IDEO

Where I Work: Creative Serendipity

Project teams and small groups need to easily congregate—and then just as easily wander into private spaces for design iterations, coding sessions, etc. The mix of project rooms, smaller conversational nooks, and individual phone booths makes this possible. Our studio also allows for the high percentage of casual transient spaces needed to let folks easily collaborate.


Deepak Chopra, Founder Deepak Chopra LLC

Where I Work: The Office as an Extension of Myself

Your work is an act of worship; and that’s why both of my main headquarters embody the principles of healing.
