Working from home with cats, dogs and kids!
As the country gears up to ‘return to schooling’ after the Easter holidays, you’re probably wondering how best to prepare for your new jobs as home-schooler, entertainer, PE teacher, mediator, and multitalented wizard. You may also be wondering how to do all of these, while holding down your actual day-job!

Join our panel to find out what has (and has not!) been working for them. Pick up hints, tips, and resources you can try out at home.
