Andrew Scott

Bestselling author of The 100 Year Life, Chairman of The Longevity Forum and Professor of Economics, London Business School

Andrew is the best-selling author of The 100 Year Life and Professor of Economics, London Business School and Chair of The Longevity Forum. His work focuses on major trends that shape the world around us, both for corporates and individuals. He has widespread experience advising senior leadership in both business and government as to how to adapt to these shifting trends.

His book The 100 Year Life is a global best seller and has helped shift the agenda around ageing. Recognising that people are living longer requires major changes to how we structure life. Too often longer lives are seen purely about an ageing society but in reality it means inventing a new life course with new stages and new behaviours.

Andrew’s recent work also focuses on how technology and other broader social changes are interacting with longevity to change the world around us. Old ways of behaving are no longer optimal and need to change. This will lead to shifts in how we think about education, careers and financial services. This has enormous implications for us as individuals as well as investors and corporates. Andrew explains how these forces are already affecting us and what steps you need to take to ensure that you will benefit from the changes to come.
