This month I celebrate what I consider a milestone birthday. The one thing I have learnt from this COVID-19 shutdown is that I will always keep working. For many similar to me who have so much to give and share, the way to thrive post pandemic is to keep learning and sharing knowledge and experience.
The tipping point for me was NFP board member telling me I was too old to be on boards and she did not want older males involved. What is old? Tell that to world famous business guru Peter Drucker who was consulting past his eighties and was still relevant.
That's why my purpose in business is to work with families in business from bright young teenagers to founders who won't retire to achieve harmony between age groups.
Looking forward to a changed business world when we know what the hell that may look like.
