Inspirational Dianne shows age no barrier in workplace

Editor's Viewpoint

Dianne Gibson is an inspirational woman, having just started a new full-time job at the age of 77. That means she has been working constantly for 60 years after leaving school at 17. For her the joy is in working rather than taking it easy, as most people her age are doing.

Her message to others is simple: never let anything hold you back, you can do anything if you put your mind to it. That is a hugely positive outlook and the result is that she has proved her mettle in a wide variety of jobs - and indeed was approached to take up her latest post. Dianne shows that age is no barrier to the contribution one can make to society and experience counts for a lot.
