With children born today having a very realistic expectation of living to 100, Emma Birchall explored what it takes to live a happy, healthy and productive 100-year life – and the critical role of education every step of the way.
She argues that we must drastically rethink what it means to learn, work and retire in this new context. Crucially, we will need to equip the next generation of talent with the skills, capabilities and mindset to thrive in a world characterised by more options and greater disruption than ever before.
As head of forecasting at the Hot Spots Movement, Emma advises global companies on how to anticipate the trends shaping the future of work and how to adapt to future-proof their success; she delivers masterclasses attended by senior executives from multinational organisations and speaks at conferences and in-company events on shifting organisational culture, reinventing careers, and unleashing collaboration.
Emma is also co-founder and trustee of the BecomingX Foundation, which aims to create a world where everyone can realise their full potential, no matter what their starting point in life. BecomingX shares the experience of some of the world’s most inspiring and iconic people, demystifying what it takes to succeed.
