About this event

As we all know, ageing is inevitable. In this time of longer lifespans, however, we have the potential to age better than ever before. The time has come to cast off prejudices and blur the lines of what is possible at every age. We can tear up the old script that locks us into learning in early life, working in the middle years and pursuing leisure with whatever time is left at the end.

Instead, we can learn, work, rest, care for others, volunteer, create and have fun all the way through our lives. Ageing can be a bonus rather than a burden.

We are so pleased to present award-winning writer, broadcaster, and TED speaker Carl Honoré as our keynote speaker. Carl’s keynotes are dynamic, inspiring, informative, and full of humour. In Why We Should Embrace Ageing As An Adventure, he will be demolishing ageist stereotypes and showing how companies and society in general can benefit from embracing ageing and taking a multigenerational approach.

We are living better for longer than ever before. Scientists, artists and entrepreneurs are hitting their stride later in life. Pop culture, from movies to modelling to the media, is carving out more room for people past the first flush of youth.

And what about those from the Greatest Generation, the Silent Generation and those early Baby Boomers in the workplace? Conventional wisdom tells us that an ageing workforce is a bad thing. Conventional wisdom is wrong. Older workers are productive, creative and socially adroit. They also have a strong yen to help others. No wonder mixed-age teams perform better on every metric.

Drawing on the latest research and on case studies from around the world, Carl shows how your organization can thrive by embracing older staff and multigenerational working.
