Refirement Network :: May 2016


Dear Refirement Members

It has been a month of celebration for me. I have spent two weeks down in the beautiful Cape working and playing. That is what I love about the choices I have made for myself in this season.

I ran two successful workshops in Hermanus and Cape Town. It is such a privilege to engage with individuals grappling with their next season.

I also had the opportunity to celebrate the 60 th year celebrations with my classmates from high school. We all turn 60 this year and felt this was a good reason to connect face to face and celebrate this milestone.

My main article this month talks about life as a tragedy or a legacy. We all have choices to make and the sooner we face ourselves in the mirror the better. Included as well is a podcast I did for Radio Today on older workers and working virtually.

The second article talks to ten options to look at work-wise in this season. Remember to join us for one of our Cavern events in August and October

Have a great month

This article will help you see your life as a legacy not a tragedy. Read full article here

Radio Today Podcast (older workers and working virtually)

I had the privilege of speaking on Radio Today last week about older workers and working virtually. This is a great advantage for many of us but we do need to understand what this means and learn some new skills to engage. The workplace also needs to do some re-thinking around how older workers engage at work. - Listen to the podcast here
