I would be interested in sessions addressing "job hunting for the senior non-entropenier professional" with emphasis on practical skills including overcoming age bias and discrimination, and changing careers along with identifying what you really want to do before you retire in the next 10 or 20 years.

Another good topic would be about finding and choosing a legitimate career counselor in the Silicon Valley that will actually work for you, doing something useful other that ripping you off.
OR PACE is having an event on
