Thank you all again for supporting our 2015 book talks and efforts! With renewed vigor in 2016, we have scheduled eight presentations so far and plan many more–to hopefully inspire Boomers to explore Encore Careers. If you look at events on our website, you’ll note that to date we’ve been invited to speak at Los Altos, Campbell, Saratoga, and Sunnyvale Rotary Clubs as well as West San Jose Kiwanis. Open to the public are our talks at Book Passage in Corte Madera on Sunday, January 31st as well as Mountain View (Feb.) and Sunnyvale (Mar.) Libraries.
Our exciting media coverage has continued, including my interview in the Tisch College at Tufts University website and digital newsletter in their “active citizen” section and our book was well-reviewed in the Tufts Alumni magazine published in November 2015. See our 2 articles on Forbes.com on Adventure Volunteerism and why we volunteered in Africa. Learn how Rick’s career at Ernst & Young helped him in his encore career in the EY Alumni magazine both online and hard copy. And view PBS’ Next Avenue website about Adventure Volunteerism and how and why we volunteered in Africa.
We strongly believe that all of our smart, capable peers have much to offer that can make a socially beneficial difference in tackling local, regional, national, and global challenges. In the next couple of blogs, I hope to catalyze your thinking so that we boomers might find a path to a new volunteer and/or paid encore career.
Please tell your friends about our book (at Amazon, etc.) and that we are available for speaking. Meanwhile, a happy, healthy 2016 to one and all.
