Re-think Retirement is an inspirational podcast for anyone in ‘unretirement’. If you are thinking about retiring, recently retired – or wanting to change direction later in your retirement, this is for you. On each podcast a guest shares their insights about this stage of life – honestly talking about some of the challenges but also giving you a vast range of ideas as to what you can do. Maybe taking your business skills to help charities tackle big issues; starting an art gallery; growing flowers for the wholesales market; a Michelin-starred chef starting an upmarket food wagon; mentoring younger generations or starting a business. Some people want to play with their grandchildren, play golf or turn their garden into a haven. This podcast is for those who feel that may not be enough and have an unsettling feeling that they want more after working full time. On Re-think Retirement, you will meet others like you. The hosts are Victoria Tomlinson, chief executive of Next-Up, and Trevor Hatton, Career Counsellor. They take you on a journey with their guests, sharing their own experiences and insights in the process. The Re-think Retirement podcast will help listeners have a positive view of life beyond your current career. You will be inspired by some of the amazing ideas that are possible – and have ideas about how to do them for yourself. And hopefully the tips you hear will help you avoid some of the pitfalls others have made!

International journalist Peter Davenport met Hollywood icons Fred Astaire to John Wayne and Omar Sharif; was with the Royal Navy on HMS Illustrious in the Indian Ocean, flew to the Falklands with the RAF and was at Bloody Sunday in Londonderry. Moving to the ‘dark side’ of PR he started and built PR consultancies and now shares his experiences as a speaker. Author of two books and manager of a teenage rock band, Peter is still young at heart and enjoying life. Always a stylish dresser, he didn’t resort to meeting in pyjamas in Covid! Instead he started sharing his love of clothes on Instagram: @peterd67. Peter is a great example to us all – joyous and positive, trying new things and living life to the full!
