The LSE HR division runs a one-day Positive Retirement Conference two-three times per year. The conference is designed to be of benefit to those who are within five years of their retirement date.
The transitions from employment to retirement can seem daunting, exposing many personal, social, domestic and financial uncertainties. If these are recognised and approached in a positive way the prospects for an active and happy retirement can be increased.
The conferences are designed to address these issues and more. In order that you can get the most out of the day, we would welcome your questions and concerns about retirement in advance. We can then ensure that these questions are answered for you. The courses are designed to be participative so that each delegate can benefit.
Key learning points

An awareness of the psychological effects of retirement
