You may have seen the TV drama (New Tricks) about retired senior police officers helping current squads unearth cold cases, old evidence from the perspective of their long years of experience? You may have noted in October 2010 that the Leeds Building Society recruited a retired A-level English teacher to give English lessons to their staff in basic and/or business English.
There is nothing wrong with tapping into the deep wells of experience. The pushing back of retirement ages means at last that older people are being recognised as sources of knowledge, understanding, people management skills, ideas, energy, left-field thinking and historical perspectives the modern world cannot afford to scrap.
I have a pool of people I can call on for troubleshooting, new ways of doing things, thinking outside (without neglecting what’s inside) the box and coming up with different ways of doing things. Give me a call!
I am working with numbers of people in their 50s and older who have experience to offer all kinds of businesses and individuals. Society cannot afford to ignore the collective hard learning of older people. Older people still have a real contribution to make.
