Been downsized or forced to retire out of your lifelong career and scrambling for what’s next? Is it time to move on, but you just can’t seem to take the leap? At the 2010 Encore Career TeleSummit for Women 50+ April 24-25, twelve leading encore career and life/work transition experts are coming together virtually in a first-ever, ground-breaking event to help 50- to 60-something Boomer women answer these questions and more.
Lin Schreiber, founder of Revolutionize Retirement, created – and will be hosting – this free, weekend event. “With the caliber of experts we’ve lined up, women want to know why we’re offering the TeleSummit absolutely free,” says Schreiber. “It’s simple. I want every woman who dreams of a meaningful Encore Career – no matter what her background or the current state of her finances – to have access to this valuable information, with no exceptions.”
The presentations will be divided up over the course of the two days from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. (EDT) with six, 50-minute sessions each day. Each session will be available for 24 hours so that people from all over the world can listen in at a convenient time. All that is needed to attend any of the twelve free presentations is a computer and Internet access to listen online. A digital package of MP3 files and transcripts of the entire TeleSummit will be available to anyone who can’t attend or wants to listen to these experts again and again for $97 beginning April 26th.
Encore career experts, best-selling authors and world-renowned speakers will share important strategies, tips and techniques for finding a meaningful encore career in today’s current economy.
For example, Jeri Sedlar, former editor-at-large of Working Woman Magazine, Senior Advisor to The Conference Board on the Mature Workforce, and co-author of the best-selling book, Don't Retire, Rewire!, will present “Deciding to Work for Wages, For a Fee, For Free or For Yourself.” She offers a whole new way to look at “the world of work” and our role in it as we age.
