Amidst the cost-of-living crisis, Claer Barrett is the voice of reason. She joins us with calm counsel to help us regain control of our finances.

Financial Times money agony aunt Claer Barrett offers hope to the millions of people who simply don’t know where to start with money. Her very human take on our place in the financial world debunks the pervasive money myths perpetuated by those who profit most from our ignorance.

With the cost-of-living crisis threatening a dramatic period of financial turbulence, now is the time to tackle the gaps in our knowledge, beat our overdrafts, and finally get to grips with our finances. She joins How To Academy to provide tools to steer through this period of vast uncertainty.

In this livestream event, Claer will unpick the complex emotional relationship we all have with money, which can drive us to keep up with the Joneses, fall for get-rich-quick schemes, or bury our heads in the sand when the going gets tough. With no finger-wagging or headache-inducing jargon, she will give us the knowledge and confidence to plan our finances beyond today’s troubled times. And she will even make us laugh along the way.

You can access this event and many more by subscribing to How To +. The first month is £9.99 + VAT, thereafter £17.50 + VAT a month.
