On Wednesday June 3, the Melbourne Press Club hosted the lunchtime panel discussion, “Beyond the Big ‘R’: Life after Redundancy”. The discussion was moderated by Lawrie Zion, and panellists included Louise Graham and Kirsty Simpson, both formerly of Fairfax, and Phil Kafcaloudes, who was made redundant last October after 26 years at the ABC.
The discussion focussed on the development of post-redundancy careers, and touched on a range of associated issues including the redundancy experience, networking with former colleagues, and forging a different kind of professional identity.
