Marc Freedman: Are You Ready for the Big Shift? Thoughts on Navigating the New Stage Beyond Midlife

Founder and CEO of Civic Ventures; Author, The Big Shift

Millions of people in their fifties, sixties and seventies are searching for answers to the question, “What’s next?” and are navigating their way to an entirely new stage of life and work, one that could last as long as midlife. Shifting to a much longer lifespan isn’t as easy as it may seem. Unlike the transition from adolescence to adulthood, managing this process for many is a do-it-yourself project. Drawing on powerful personal stories, Freedman will introduce the notion of a new stage of life between midlife and anything approximating old age. Freedman, hailed by The New York Times as “the voice of aging baby boomers [seeking] meaningful and sustaining work later in life,” will offer a recipe for how individuals can find encores and how we, as a society, can transform America’s coming midlife crisis into a midlife opportunity.
