Bobby Seagull - Financial Maths: How to Make the Finance of Maths Come to Life for Students

About The Event

Before Bobby Seagull became a teacher, he worked in finance (trader at investment banks Lehman Brothers & Nomura and qualified as a Chartered Accountant at PwC). Bobby will explain how maths played a role in the financial crisis of 2008. Bobby is an ambassador for the charity National Numeracy alongside Money Saving Expert's Martin Lewis and Countdown TV's Rachel Riley. In this capacity, he is aware of how lack of confidence in maths at school leads to day-to-day numeracy challenges for adults. In this session, Bobby will show how to engage students with the numbers in money and personal finance.

This event will be held at 10:00 (BST) on Saturday the 15th of May 2021.
