About me & my work:

I've fully recovered from my initial career as a corporate lawyer, and now help people in their 40s, 50s and beyond to reinvent their work and lives, so they can reclaim their future and create the life they want for the coming decades. I work with individuals and employers to find ways to maximise the contribution of workers of all ages in the 21st century workforce. I'm fascinated by the changing world of work and the possibilities it offers.

My book, Rethink Your Career in your 40s, 50s and 60s was released in mid-2017 by HarperCollins as an ABC Book. I'm now researching a book about what used to be called retirement...

I'm also moving into advocacy and social action around opportunities to improve the lives of older Australians (actually, the lives of anyone, but you have to start somewhere...).
