Refirement Network :: July 2017


Dear Refirement Members

This past month I have been very focused and involved in a social entrepreneurship competition with The Diageo Empowerment Trust. This competition was there to assist social entrepreneurs with ideas that are valuable to society and in the early stages of development.

There were more than 300 entries and Refirement Network reached the final 20 with our idea of a skills bank of wisdom and skills to empower both old and young in South Africa through mentoring and coaching. Sadly we were knocked out in the last round but still proud of our achievement.

This edition is filled with content to help you learn, grow and enable others to do the same. Please share with your HR department, friends and family who may enjoy and benefit from the content.

Have a fabulous month and reach out and help others.

I have a number of talks that I do that are aimed at a female audience both young and 50+. Please share with friends and those involved in organising events during August. You are welcome to contact me for a quote and to check my diary for availability. Read more

Ten steps to prepare yourself for a career 50+

I am finding that many people who are about 5 years away from retirement are struggling with the process. The article this month will help to bring order and a tick list to use to assist you with this journey. Read article here

Who can coach and how does it help?

The Boomer generation is not that comfortable with coaching. It may be time to invest in yourself and spend some time with a retirement life coach or career coach. This article helps to align the importance and need for such a process. Read article here.

Coaching for coaches' course

I will be running my next retirement coaching for coaches' course in August and September. It is one day in each month. If you are keen to join this process please send me an email so that I can send you more details.
