Coaching Session with Brian Mooney

28 Sep – Thursday: Starts 14:00 (2pm)

Rediscovering yourself in your Second Life

As human beings we are creatures of habit as anyone who attempts to fulfil a new year’s resolution can attest to. So, no matter what age you are when you walk away from the job which has filled that work slot during your adult life you are likely to experience a sense of loss or dislocation.

Work for most people involves far more than the actual role they perform in their professional life. For many of us it gives us our sense of self, our identity in a profound way, as well as providing us with the means to live our life in the way we want to. Work can also be central to our social lives, where we meet with many of our closest friends daily. It may be the place where we feel most fulfilled, enhancing our sense of self-esteem and personal empowerment.

How then should we prepare for the transition to our second life? Brian Mooney will chat through how we navigate the next steps. With the right planning, a little imagination, and a degree of bravery, rediscovering yourself in your Second Life can be very rewarding.

Coupled with this we will give you access to the resources that provide the tips and tools that you can use to help you plan for a fulfilling and financially sound retirement.

Ryan Tubridy, PAW Host

His stellar broadcasting career includes fourteen years at the helm of the iconic ‘The Late Late Show’, where he has interviewed guests such as U2, Saoirse Ronan, Michael Bublé and Sinead O’Connor on the world’s longest running chat show, and helped raise more than €17,000,000 for charity.

In his second book, ‘The Irish Are Coming’, he examines the relationship between Britain and Ireland – two countries separated by a small stretch of water but for so long divided politically, socially, culturally and emotionally. Ryan's third book was his first children's book called ‘Patrick and the President’, a captivating read which tells the story through the eyes of a young boy, of John F. Kennedy's return to his ancestral home in 1963. Most recently he wrote a festive book for children called ‘The First Christmas Jumper (and the sheep who changed everything)’.
