Session Overview

What Does It Mean To Live To 100 Years Of Age?

What does it mean to live to 100 years of age? This is the question facing many people in today's workforce, and certainly the workforce of the future.

In this session, Emma will explain why increasing longevity calls for us to make dramatic shifts at both the individual level – to future proof our employability and vitality – and at the organisational level, to enable our talent to thrive in the new world of work.

Emma will explore why the ability to transform will become increasingly important, along with what it takes to build this essential life skill.
