Abstract
When you reach a certain age, ‘retirement’ moves from being a quasi-theoretical concept, and becomes a cruel fact of life. It is not uncommon for people reaching this age to reflect on their career – even if it’s only to relive past glories and stave off the inevitable. Rich is now at that stage in his life, and he would like to share some of his reflections with you. In an effort to make it more interesting to this audience, however, and to provide a little extra challenge, Rich will try to frame his career as a major project he has (mis)managed over the years by presenting his reflections in the form of a post-project review. He hopes that some of the mistakes he’s made over the years will provide useful lessons to at least a few of the members of his audience – particularly those that are still early in their career.
 
Learning Objective
Participants will gain
Insights into how to manage their career

Abstract
Our world-view of what is normal is based on the last decade, where we had rising employment, enabling technology, deflation in the cost of goods and services, and supply chains that span the globe. Recently it has included rising authoritarianism, nationalism and division driven by those who seek power. COVID-19 has been the biggest shock to the world since World War II, which most of us did not experience personally. What will be the new social, economic, and political normal after the pervasive threat of COVID-19 is over? This talk will cover some of the major areas of concern and opportunity in the post COVID-19 world.

In our “new world” of digital, now is the time to jump in and go online to make your knowledge available. One method is through a podcast. How do you create a podcast? What type of podcast would be the best for your subject? 

The objective of the presentation: Dea will share her process of creating a podcast and perhaps inspire the audience to do the same.
