Speech Topics

Across the world life expectancy is increasing but the phenomena is much misunderstood. We are on average living for longer and are healthier for longer. In response we are restructuring how we live our life and changing our education, employment, career paths as well as when we, retirement, marry or have children. Drawing on his global best seller “The 100 Year Life,” Andrew Scott explains what this means for you and how as an individual, corporate or investor you need to respond to seize the opportunities. It is nothing other than life changing.


Technological change, longevity and changing social relationships are bringing about a seismic change to society and the economy, a shock similar in magnitude to the Industrial Revolution. Enormous attention has been paid to the spellbinding possibilities that future technologies bring and great anxiety has been expressed about a world run by robots. What hasn’t received so much attention is what do we as individuals need to do in terms of our education, careers and life to ensure that we make the most of the tremendous advantages on offer. In this talk Andrew Scott explains the actions to take to ensure that we as humans flourish in the years to come and benefit from these changes. He provides an insight into the investment opportunities that this entails and the leadership agenda for corporations today.
