Podcast | Lucy Standing | Co-Founder of ‘Brave Starts’ helping the over 50s to switch careers

Today we’re speaking with Lucy Standing, who’s the Co-Founder of Brave Starts which offers career change and start-up business programmes to help people over 50 lead more purposeful lives. 

Lucy talks openly about the challenges mature people face in their careers and within the workplace. 

We discuss why age is being ignored in discussions about diversity and inclusion, and what can be done about it. 

We cover a lot of really fascinating ground in this podchat from her views of career advice to reforms needed in recruitment, to practical steps and advice for people seeking to switch gears in their careers when 50+ years old. 

It’s a really wide-ranging, engaging and value packed discussion.
