About our speaker's work: Andrew J. Scott is a leading expert on the economics of longevity and on ensuring that our lives aren’t just longer but also happier, healthier and more productive. He is an award winning researcher, speaker, author and teacher. He is a co-founder of The Longevity Forum, co-author of the global bestseller, “The 100 Year Life,” and a professor of economics at London Business School.
About this lecture: We live at a unique time in human history. For the first time ever, the young and middle-aged can expect to live long enough to become old. That requires all of us, regardless of age, to behave differently and ensure that lives are not just longer but also healthy, productive and engaged for longer. “The Longevity Imperative” outlines the fundamental changes needed in our health system, economy and financial sector as well as the critical cultural and political shifts needed if we are to adapt to a new longevity era’.
