With life expectancy heading towards 100 years of age, many of us are facing the challenge of having to work longer to support ourselves financially.  However, the nature of work itself is changing: career paths are becoming more fluid, offering exciting opportunities for professional and personal growth across the lifespan.
 
Dr Gaby Pfeifer will outline some of the emerging issues surrounding career planning for young and older people in view of greater life expectancy: Preparing for a multi-track life career at a young age, managing identity changes, and restructuring social and working lives to retain a healthy work-life balance in the context of an extended work life.
 
The session is interactive and everyone is welcome to share their experiences with these issues.  

Dr Gaby Pfeifer is a Lecturer in Psychology at Leeds Beckett University with a background in cognitive neuroscience and biological psychology. Alongside her experimental work she is interested in the psychology of personal development and the art of bridging individual’s values and talents with the workplace. 
 
Please note: Talk will start at 7pm.
