Description

Longevity: The Greatest Gift or a Multi-Generational Curse

Bright Futures LBG are delighted to welcome Andrew Scott as their guest speaker on 28th June 2019 to mark the charities first anniversary. Andrew will open a thought provoking session on the islands demographic timebomob, outlining the benefits of longevity and risks if the necessary preparations are not made. As a small island community with a massively ageing population, shifting dependency ratio and a constant shortage of human capital, this event is one that everyone should attend. The event is kindly sponsored by Rossborough and Rothchild & Co.

Why are Bright Futures LBG hosting this event?

Every business on our island requires human capital to operate. Almost every business we have engaged with have expressed difficulty in recruiting the right skills for a post, often forcing jobs to be unfilled which lowers productivity and hurts the bottom line. This event is a further strand to a possible solution to our human capital challenge.

Andrew will share his analysis and understanding of longevity, He will provide some social and economic context as to how we might better prepare for an enjoyable and longer life.
