In a sea of scary news about long retirements on little superannuation, discrimination against older workers and the post-work identity crisis, David Kennedy is the voice of optimism. David argues that we need to urgently address the employment options of 60-plus Aussies and re-frame the conversation about the ageing population in positive terms; living longer is something to be celebrated! He’s a retirement planning specialist and author of End of the Retirement Age: Embracing the pursuit of meaning, purpose and prosperity (2017), an upbeat commentary on the reinvention of retirement that features interviews and inspiring stories about older Australians from all walks of life. He is also co-author of the new book Finding Joy in Retirement: 4 steps to discover meaning in life after work (2019). David writes and speaks regularly about the changing face of retirement and, and in addition to working as a director of Hillross Pacific Advisory, he is busy writing his third book.
