Five simple steps to move on successfully after redundancy

About the Author

Eleanor Tweddell worked in the corporate world for over twenty years, in senior management positions, for companies including Virgin Atlantic, Costa Coffee and Vodafone until she was made redundant. This inspired her to start her own company, Another Door, to work with individuals and organisations to provide advice and support through redundancy.


As a redundancy survivor myself, this book reminded me why an ending - especially an unexpected one - can be the best kind of beginning. Packed full of realistic inspiration, advice and motivation, this is the perfect guidebook for the moment when your career punches you in the face * Viv Groskop, author of Lift As You Climb: Women and the Art of Ambition *
Eleanor Tweddell has created a book that is part survival guide, part life coach. A warm and welcoming Sherpa helping you escape the valleys of rejection bound for the peaks of opportunity * Bruce Daisley, bestselling author of The Joy of Work *
'This book is so much more than a user guide to life after redundancy - it's an inspiring journey of how to deal with the knocks of everyday life, written with humour, empathy and honesty' * Debbie Hewitt MBE, Chair, Visa Europe *
A sensitive balance of acknowledging the seriousness of redundancy by providing practical, real-world advice for how to tackle the challenge whilst recognising that humour can be found in every situation * Joe Thompson, former MD, Virgin Holidays *
This book takes away the stigma associated with redundancy and turns it into an opportunity to rethink your career and discover work that works for you * Alison Grade, author of The Freelance Bible *
The first of its kind and so relatable, this book is all encompassing, practical, real and provides a guiding mind. An encouraging read that provides reflection and gives inner confidence and most importantly encouragement and focus on the future. It's as though Eleanor is there with you every step of the way! * Steve Griffiths, Managing Director, MAG London Stansted Airport *
A book I wish I'd have at my disposal on several occasions during my career and I will no doubt dip back into it on several more to come. With Eleanor at the helm, redundancy becomes less a door slammed in one's face, more, quite literally, another door through which to walk * Cally Beaton, Comedian, Writer, Speaker, Business Mentor *
Eleanor approaches the emotional side of redundancy with honesty and then backs it up with simple actionable steps. Now has never been a better time to make the most of losing your job! And if you're going to do that then do it with dignity, grace and positivity - which is given in spades in this book * Robin Waite, Founder, Fearless Business *
Woe to the unprepared! If you have the proper training, support and advice in advance, you can suffer any redundancy and reclaim your life and career. This book is a must read for today's working force * James Victoire, author of Feck Perfuction *
Life has a way of smacking us in the face when we least expect it. Where before there was certainty, there is now worry and sleepless nights. Thankfully there's no need for you to struggle alone any longer. With this brilliant book and Eleanor Tweddell as your trusted guide, you'll be armed with the belief and tools to navigate this path with confidence and a swagger. Eleanor's personality shines through in this book and she provides some tough love to edge you towards a more fulfilling future that you probably can't even imagine right now * Laurence McCahill, The Happy Startup School *
The combination of lived experience, empathy and practical advice is a powerful thing. Eleanor very thoughtfully and carefully takes the reader through all aspects of redundancy with a focus on the biggest question of all...'what next?' With large doses of clear forward-facing advice, reassurance and encouragement, this book is an immensely positive read * Alex Mahon, CEO, Channel 4 *
Frank and supportive advice for anyone going through what is a shitty time, and filled with strategies on how to emerge from it * Steven Haines, author of How to Go to Work *
