About the Author

Following board-level careers, the authors all became active Portfolio Professionals; their book shares their experience and gives case histories from those who've been through the decision already and are happily 'portfolio-ing'.


"A myriad of options and whirling thoughts were converted into a plan with timings and milestones...and a sense of achievement." Dame Julia Cleverdon. "The book shows that with planning and determination the portfolio life, with its potential for independence and fulfillment, can be an antidote to redundancy." Mark Tran, The Guardian. "My portfolio career was achieved more easily as a result of the structured, easy to follow and logical approach explained in the book. All potential career changers should have one!"
