Workshop 3: Age is Your Asset

12:30 pm
2:00 pm

​​​In this 3rd workshop, we'll build your understanding of why your age is one of your best assets to ensuring a successful career at this stage in your life.

At the end of this workshop, you'll better understand:

  • ​Why you need to be your own activist.
  • ​The psychology of ageing: how we change but particularly in the context of work.
  • ​How we have to rebrand and market ourselves for a market not ready for us (yet).

​​It is our goal to validate your experiences of being marginalised but to arm you with the insight to understand not only that this isn't your fault but to give some guidance for what you can do about it.

About our small member-only workshops:

  • ​To enable free flowing discussion, we do not record sessions.
  • You should come prepared to talk in small groups and be willing to share your experiences.
  • ​The majority of our members work in professional roles, mums who've taken career breaks, people who are bored and want a change, people who've retired and want to go back to work, people over 45 looking for work but who feel frustrated.
