Attend a workshop

Leaving work can be a massive disruption to our sense of self. So much of work is about feeling useful, belonging and contributing to something that’s important beyond ourselves.

Retire & Flourish has brought together a wealth of expertise on this next Act and combined it with a validated, peer-reviewed tool to create the Retirement Compass.

The Retirement Compass has worked for administrators, CEO’s, teachers, doctors, clerks archivists, IT specialists, architects, bushwalkers, pharmacists, lawyers, alike, because it’s an individually tailored tool that gives each person quick entry to a personally designed and energised 3rd Act.

To design your Retirement Compass, complete an on-line ‘tick-box’ questionnaire and come to either an individual and couple consultation or small group workshop. Costs apply.
