2nd Act Life Stories

2ND ACT was imagined as a monthly speakers’ series featuring ordinary people talking about the extraordinary things they are doing in the 2ND (half) ACT of their lives.

Part inspirational, aspirational, experiential and just plain comical, these after-50 life stories may even ignite your own imagination to become part of what is becoming a growing community of 2ND ACTers!

Stories will be 45–60 minutes in length followed by Q&A with the audience. Light fare will be provided before each presentation in the series.

Join us for stories by ordinary people doing extraordinary things that will inspire YOU to write your own 2ND ACT!
