What’s Next? Strategies for Maximizing the Second Half of Life

As Americans live longer and healthier lives, the desire to work longer and foster better relationships — for the income, the mental engagement or the chance to give back — has grown. New York Times columnist and job/retirement expert Kerry Hannon will share her insights into some of the tough questions and choices that come with age. Using inspiring real-life profiles, she will not only offer practical advice for starting your next act, but will help you explore:

• If you should stay in your current job or if it’s time to pursue something new;

• Whether you’re ready for retirement and what your financial and day-to-day life plan should look like;

• How your next career or move will work with your spending habits and family situation;

• Strategies to create your transition network professionally or personally; and

• How to find a mentor to guide you along your new path.

Whether you’re fantasizing about a new path or ready to pursue it, this session will provide you with the roadmap for long-term success.
