  • When developing their personal brands, how can both older and younger executives position their age as a positive?
  • How do executive search consultants help to improve age and other types of diversity at companies?
  • How can seasoned and younger executives ensure their resumes don’t get them screened out due to age?
  • How do search pros assist seasoned career changers, particularly since they specialize in an industry or function?
  • What kinds of actions or questions do employers need to avoid related to age discrimination?
  • Due to ageing demographics, is there increase in demand for seasoned execs?
