New Horizons Workshop

For Your Lifestyle Transition

Workshop Overview

Planning for “retirement” is more important today than it has ever been as people are now much healthier, more active and can expect to live much longer. This means that the potential for a whole new phase of life and opportunity opens up for them.

We recognise the term ‘retirement’ means different things to people.  Some may see it as an escape from the ‘rat-race’, providing the opportunity for more leisure time; others may view it as a new challenge, a time to do some volunteering or stimulation through study. Privately, some may see it as a time of inactivity, under-stimulation and loss of status – something to fear. One thing we may agree on is that retirement is changing in the traditional sense.  Retirement is a classic example of a life transition, a move from one stage to another resulting in significant changes in routine.

Our Approach

In order to plan for the next phase of their life individuals need information, awareness, understanding and resilience.

The workshop is designed for individuals (plus partners/spouses) who are approaching or considering that new phase within the next 12 months and will review the choices people face together with time for self-assessment and reflection.

Your workshop can include your spouse/partner and will be delivered over a 1-day workshop at a suitable location selected by your organisation
