The Share Interview: Multitasking in lockdown
The pandemic has forced a lot of us to work from home exclusively for almost a year; something that many would have considered impossible before Coronavirus made it necessary. According to research, 9 out of 10 office workers have been enjoying the challenges and unexpected freedoms of multitasking between work and home life while working remotely – and they don’t want that to stop once lockdown is over. Vicky Sayers is joined by TV presenter from Channel 5’s The Gadget Show, Harry Wallop, to discuss the pros and cons of working from home – and whether it’s time for all employers to embrace working flexibility even after lockdown.

The Share Interview: Negative interest rates
Would you be prepared to pay for the privilege of keeping your money in a bank? National concern arose recently following an announcement by the Bank of England of a potential move to negative interest rates to cope with the ramifications of COVID-19. Even though we narrowly missed that fate, it begs the question: could negative interest rates be on the horizon further down the line, and what would that mean for you? Vicky Sayers is joined by Sarah Waring, Client Director at wealth management company, Quilter.

The Share Interview: A maths app you can count on
New research shows that, while mums and female carers tend to be the parent most likely to help their children with their maths homework, two thirds of them lack confidence in the subject. As a result, maths tuition website Numerise has launched The Confidence Lab, to assist parents in helping their children build the skills – and numeracy confidence – they need to reach their potential at Key Stage 3 and GCSE. Vicky Sayers is joined by TV presenter and mum of two, Angellica Bell, to talk about her own experiences with maths and home-schooling during the pandemic.
