You’re Fired. Now What?

By Stuart Bladen, CEO at Falanx Group Limited

Fired Artwork

After 30 years’ work, I was leading a billion-dollar business with long hours and hard graft. I was flying nonstop, physically and metaphorically, with teams in 20 countries.

One Day it just Stopped

My industry, like many, was re-aligning. I was good, I worked hard, and I thought it wouldn’t happen to me. Not true. Always be ready to job hunt: always maintain your savings, networks, and job-hunting skills. Jobs are not for life. Most of us now will be unemployed at some time in our lives, through no fault of ours or of our employers.
