Whether we live long lives with vitality and purpose or sickness and suffering will depend to a great extent on our ability to reshape the skills, services and incentives of our current healthcare system. This new presentation provides a visionary glimpse into the future, outlining the critical course corrections required to create healthy aging and productive longevity.

Topics to be covered include: Why we must accelerate the scientific breakthroughs needed to prevent, delay and eliminate the horrific diseases of aging (such as Alzheimer’s); why training healthcare professionals to become “aging-ready” will both saves lives and money; how the boomers’ proclivity toward control, self-care and connectivity can help make disease prevention and self-care a national priority; how new technologies and emerging community-based services can enable us to shift the healthcare focus from hospitals and nursing facilities to home-based care; why establishing a humane and dignified approach to end-of-life care has reached a critical tipping point.

Rising longevity and the aging of the massive boomer generation are radically altering both the demographic landscape and every aspect of the consumer marketplace. Already 50+ consumers account for more than half of all spending and control more than 70% of total U.S. net worth. In the coming years, we’ll see explosive business growth fueled by this unprecedented age wave.

In this provocative new presentation, for business leaders seeking to understand, re-gear, and thrive in the era of unprecedented longevity, Dr. Ken Dychtwald offers a revealing glimpse into the future. He will explore which industries, products and services will dominate the boomer marketplace and are hiding in plain sight:

• What medical breakthroughs and technologies are on the horizon that have the potential to dramatically transform health, aging, and longevity

• How an aging population’s evolving need for healthy choices will influence food, beverage, and supplement sectors

• How a cyclic lifeplan – with repeated personal reinventions - will stimulate demand for new ways to learn, give, volunteer, work, and enjoy life

• How the aging boomers will re-invent retirement and re-define the travel and leisure, housing, and financial services industries

• Lessons learned from four decades on the front lines about the successes of pioneering companies worldwide that have “cracked the code” and created brands and marketing strategies that resonate with this new generation of brand loyal consumers
