About ReinventionWorks

ReinventionWorks is a purpose-based company. We believe that “Reinvention is a choice.” That means deliberate and intentional planning and action towards a next future you choose to create. That future may involve a career pivot, a life change, a business re-direction,or even larger societal or global transformation. It’s our goal to provide the tools, education, resources, and connections in order to facilitate that.

While our website houses our Community and instructive content, we primarily focus on producing superior content for strategic partners so they can disseminate reinvention information faster and more effectively to their audiences. Partners use our content for audience/prospect pipeline development, member engagement and retention, and employee training. Our partners include:

  • Media Publishers
  • College & University Alumni Associations
  • Member Organizations/Trade Associations
  • Corporations
  • Economic Development & Workforce Initiatives
  • Franchise Companies
  • Meeting & Conference Planners
