Reviews

'A great inspirational resource of real life stories of successful people who have beenthrough a life and career transition. Great insights into their minds and hearts as they ask themselves the elusive question 'What's Next?'. I recommend it to anyone at the peak of their career or anyone considering a life and career change.' Liza Sichon, VP, Human Resources HR Transformation, Communications & Operations, Hewlett-Packard Company

'The decision to move from a full-time executive career to a plural portfolio is a very personal journey, but reading the experiences of others who have made that journey provides a unique insight into their thinking and helps you define your own course, what

matters to you, and what you do next.' Andrew Parker, Company Secretary, BT Group PLC

'This book provides insight and practical advice that is invaluable to the many individuals who have the opportunity to shape second, even third careers, in new and imaginative ways.' Cathy Turner, former Group HR Director, Barclays PLC

'The authors' ability to connect with these executives on a personal level and capture the nuances associated with transitioning out of a life of power, influence and large staffs is captivating. The surplus message that there is more than one career in us is inspiring!' Amy Acker, former Avaya Vice President Executive Staffing and leadership Development

'The book distills the experiences of interesting leaders who have gone on to remake their professional lives in some inspiring ways. Read it, and you will find yourself thinking about making such a change yourself.'

'What's Next? clarified my nebulous notions on how I could start taking steps towards organizing my activities for a new chapter. I approach work differently now, with one eye on the future, keeping my ears open to possibilities, and taking a creative approach to defining this uncharted territory. A research project in itself! A must read for all professionals.' Richard Moreau, MD, Director of Research at the French NIH (Inserm), Centre de Recherche Biomédicale Bichat-Beaujon CRB3, Clichy/Paris; University Paris 7

'The effect of baby boomers worldwide moving toward retirement will have a dramatic impact on the global economy. This book shows how this generation is refusing the glass ceiling of age and will continue to contribute in business and by giving back, while making up for lost time with family, and finally pursuing a few of their passions.' Brian Goggin, Advisor, Apollo Global Management and Former CEO, Bank of Ireland

'What a stimulating and thought-provoking book! What's Next? provides insightful, firsthand accounts of how highly successful professional babyboomers are redefining retirement by reinventing themselves to bring real meaning and purpose to their

'retirement' years. This is a terrific book for any professional in their late career contemplating the next chapter in their life.' David A. Pleasance, Senior Partner Strategy & Operations, Deloitte Consulting, LLP
