Flexible and Purposeful Work Options in Retirement

Working in retirement connects us with other people, gives us an achievement buzz, provides us with purpose and extra income. Join Melinda Livingstone, Founder of IncomeConnection, and Andrew Griffin, Retiree Advice Leader and Private Wealth Adviser at Stanford Brown, as they workshop the large range of options available. You’ll explore which options suit you and how to tap into them. Suitable for people who are thinking about or already experiencing their new life after work.

Topics will include:

·Why the nature of work is changing and the forces that are behind the new options that are being created.

·Use of case study to consider how these these opportunities can be accessed and the different objectives people can have when working in retirement. 

·A mind map where you consider your interests, skills, assets and experiences and explore areas of work of interest and relevance to you – and what you want from working. 

·In small groups with others who have the same interests, consider work options provided on cards in your interest area. Discuss how these options could help you achieve your objectives. Plan your next steps.

·Andrew will provide a broad context to the discussion, and cover the main financial and non-financial ramifications and considerations of working in retirement (in all different forms)

·Andrew will also share his research in this area and provide some examples of successful work-related activities in his many years of working with retirees

·Useful resources will be provided

We look forward to seeing you there, and please feel free to bring a friend or your partner.

Tutor: Melinda Livingstone

Melinda Livingstone writes, presents and conducts workshops about the opportunities in the on-demand sharing economy.  She is the founder of IncomeConnection; a social enterprise. The idea came about when Melinda was trying to solve the problem of how she could help ordinary Australians save more for their retirement. Saving is tough at the best of times, and can seem a monster task in the current climate, when wages growth is flat. Many Australians want to make extra money or find more purposeful work and aren’t aware of their options. Melinda has been helping people achieve their financial goals for over 20 years, with a background in investment, superannuation and financial planning and has a track record of launching award-winning initiatives that make a difference for Australians. She has a Masters in Business Management from Monash University, a Bachelor of Commerce from the UNSW, is a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors and has a Diploma in Financial Services (Financial Planning). Melinda has chaired FOLIA, a charity that advocates and raises funds for children with disabilities and helps new refugees to settle into life in Sydney with Sydney Refugee Teams.
