QUEEN'S ROAD: Often, we believe that retirement is the end of a productive life. But retirement can also mean the freedom to begin your second career. Unfold Consulting along with Silver Talkies (an initiative to empower senior citizens) is conducting a transition program called 'Unfold second innings' for those   who are above 50 on July 18 at the United Theological College, Millers Road.

Reshmi Chakraborty, co-founder,Silver Talkies says,“There is a dearth of programmes which concentrate on seniors. There are a lot of senior people who want a better insight into a second career. We throw light on these prospects. The programme in particular will focus on areas like teaching, social sector and entrepreneurship.”

“Unfold Consulting along with Silver Talkies conducted a survey among people above the age of 50. We found that senior citizens are looking for opportunities to use their skills to make a larger impact through teaching and also to get themselves involved in social sector work,” says Puja, the founder of Unfold Consulting.

“Many a time, people choose a second career to be independent and to help people without expecting any monetary benefit,"  adds Puja. The programmes have panelists who have successfully started a second career.
