Evan Davis
On the last programme in the series, Evan Davis and his guests talk about web design and holiday time.
Buying online is no longer a novelty and most companies have a website, no matter how basic, so how come we still come across frustrating and poorly designed web pages? This week on the programme we discuss what makes good web design. Simplicity is key but it turns out that putting that principle into practice is, well, not that simple.

We’ll also about holidays. Compare our allowances here in the UK to continental Europe and we look like workaholics, but in the US there is no statutory minimum, and two weeks is about average. We ask how much holiday time companies give their employees and how they keep things running when key staff are out of the office.

And speaking of holidays, this week’s programme is the last in the current run – we’ll be back on air in the autumn.

Our guests this week:

Peter Erskine
Chairman and Chief Executive, Telefonica 02 Europe

John Powell
Chief Executive, Alfresco

Miles Shipside
Commercial Director, Rightmove
About the programme
