How To Find Success Later in Life

Henry Oliver

Julia Child discovered cooking at thirty-seven. Michelangelo painted The Last Judgement in his sixties. Henry Oliver reveals how you too can find hidden talents and professional success in middle age.

In an age obsessed with prodigies and the glamour of youth, society tells us over and over that if we’re going to achieve anything, we’d better do it while we’re young.

Society is wrong. Dismantling old tropes around life trajectories with fascinating new research, Henry Oliver joins us to share the lessons we can all learn from late bloomers about goals, success and becoming the truest versions of ourselves.

Join us and discover a range of blueprints for self-reinvention, pairing the newest insights from psychology and neuroscience with late bloomers’ remarkable life stories, from Penelope Fitzgerald to Samuel Johnson, from Frank Lloyd-Wright to Malcolm X.

If you’ve ever wanted to become more successful but felt like you’re already past your prime, this livestream talk will convince you otherwise – and show you a pathway to cultivating a better life.
