What happens when hard-driving careerists hang up their hats?
Pre-retirees spend millions of dollars planning the financial side of their later years, but invest
very little time and effort into considering what will actually make them happy. Join this inspirational presentation by Donald Asher, internationally acclaimed author, renowned speaker, and career expert, as he sheds light on the emerging field of post-career human development.
Asher will explain how we manufacture meaning and attitudes about work and leisure, how the energy of Type A’s can be redirected, and share some surprising stories of success and radical transformation.
