Monday Morning Speaker:  VALLI Swerdlow

"The Threshold Generation"

Speaker Website:

"The Threshold Generation" is a new term used for the babyboomers, of the 45-65 years old generation, who have had to move their targeted retirement date up due to the economy and their financial situation.

A recent study shows being flexible, exploring additional career discovery paths by transitioning your skills and interests can become transformational, giving us a wonderful proactive opportunity for the rest of our lives.

The Threshold Generation definition is based on statistical research by PEW (a renowned social trend reach group), called "America's Changing Workforce: Recession Turns a Graying Office Grayer."


Valli appears in an AARP sponsored TV program in September about The Threshhold Generation. You can see a small clip of her talk on

Just click on the "Event" tab, move down to Media and the TV screen will appear to start the clip. The Secretary of Labor speaks first, just scroll to 8 minutes to view Valli for the next 5 minutes, followed by Tom Taylor, PEW Project Director for the study and an AARP Career Director.

Swerdlow, principal of VALLI Associates, brings over 20 years of executive recruiting, counseling – MSW, professional sales, client services and networking skills to her Career Coaching and Executive Leadership Development work. Her clients have included global, international companies as well as nationally recognized industry players.

She has worked closely with C-Level executives, board members and is equally comfortable working with individual team players.

"I am committed to becoming a Coach who gives people the gift of their presence and acts as a thinking partner who draws out people’s brilliance."
