In this era of career uncertainty, low retirement savings and digital disruption, boomers may be feeling discouraged, categorized by ageism, insecure in their own abilities and fearful of the future.

Boomer career coach John Tarnoff's new book, Boomer Reinvention: How to Create Your Dream Career Over 50, is actually a love note to this generation, proposing clear and achievable strategies for how boomers can prevail through these troubled times, and steer their own course toward meaningful, purposeful and prosperous careers past traditional retirement. Tarnoff will be in conversation with Marc Freedman, founder and CEO of Encore.org. Freedman’s mission is to celebrate and facilitate the career contributions of aging professionals in these encore careers.

Boomers came of age wanting to make a difference in the world. On this Valentine's Day 2017, now more than ever, Tarnoff and Freedman will be here to reaffirm that, yes, boomers can still make that difference.
