Many professionals are approaching the later stages of their careers, and are looking ahead to "retirement", and what the future will look like beyond full-time employment. That poses many questions, and makes one consider how to transition to the next stage in their career successfully.
Doug Harrison is known to many of us in the supply chain logistics communit. In 2018 Doug moved into the next stage of his career exiting the world of full time employment and focused on a “portfolio” of activities. Whether your close to this stage or early in your career you need a road map that helps you be successful in all stages. Doug will share his personal thoughts on how he began to plan for this stage of life over twenty years ago.
This session will give you Doug Harrison's approach to "retirement" that will allow you to think more fulsomely about this next stage in life and how to set yourself up for fun, meaningful years ahead.
Although this session is focused on "retirement", Mr. Harrison will discuss planning for this stage of your career that can begin decades in advance, so even more junior professionals will benefit from attending.
