We will be holding our 4th annual Future of Ageing Conference on Thursday 29th November.

Our Future of Ageing conference have been growing each year with the 2017 Conference seeing over 40 speakers, including Dr Pol Vandenbroucke (Vice President Medical Strategy, Pfizer), John McTernan (Senior Vice President, PSB & Former Political Secretary to Tony Blair), Dr Eileen Burns (President, British Geriatrics Society) and Dr Anna Dixon (Chief Executive, Centre for Ageing Better), and with a focus on a variety of important issues:

  • How can we maximise the Economic Contribution of older people?
  • Whether Anti-microbial resistance is a threat to longevity – and what can we do about it?
  • Whether the future will be less of more ageist?
  • How can the housing industry innovate for tomorrow's older consumers?
  • How can we save the NHS?
  • Are there more inequalities in a world of austerity?
  • Filling the skills gaps: Migration, more older workers, or both?
  • Can we automate care?
  • Can technology drive innovation in pensions, health and care?
  • The future of the end: Living forever or dying in style

A full agenda including the list of speakers from the 2017 conference, along with the presentation slides from the event are available to view here:
