Victoria from Next-Up would love to share this blog from Lucy Rimmington, founder braveteaching, the Airbnb of teacher training. Lucy is also a confirmed guest speaker at the Next-Up conference in November.
This blog has been inspired by a fabulous conversation with the amazing Victoria Tomlinson; the northern light behind @NextUpLtd. Amongst other things, we talked about how folks in un-retirement could use those skills from working life to help teachers help the next generation thrive.
Victoria Tomlinson is chief executive and founder of Next-Up. Next-Up supports employers with a range of services for directors, partners and employees to help them understand the impact of retirement on mental health and create a plan to use their skills and experience in new ways to ensure wellbeing.

A former director of EY, she is an international speaker on unretirement, personal branding and using LinkedIn strategically as well as on leadership and women on boards.
