  • Zoom virtual meeting


Rona Maynard

Rona Maynard overcame chronic depression to win her dream job. As Editor at Chatelaine during the biggest relaunch in its history, Rona led the team that won a new generation of readers for a brand dating back to the Jazz Age. Her truth-telling editorials were carried in wallets and taped to fridge doors. Her award-winning team met every benchmark of success.

When Rona stepped down from the job she had loved, she discovered there’s a lot more to life than work. She wrote an acclaimed memoir, My Mother’s Daughter, launched a unique memoir workshop for first-time writers and expanded her mind on an art road trip across the U.S. (49 museums in five weeks).  Her second memoir is inspired by the rescue dog she and her husband at 65.

Your Discovery Years: Finding Joy in Retirement

When Rona Maynard left the Editor’s desk at Chatelaine, she couldn’t wait to be free of meetings, schedules and directives from the top. She wasn’t prepared for the shock of no team and no goals to achieve together. Join Rona as she opens up about what it really took to make life after work her best life yet. You’ll learn:

  •        Three centering questions to replace “What did I do today?”;
  •        How to surprise yourself—and why you need to;
  •        How to create your new team;
  •        How to have adventures—even when you can’t travel.

This event is part of the Spring 2021 Speaker series.
