The Business and Brains Behind Switching Careers

According to the World Health Organization, the world's population older than 60 years of age will nearly double by 2050!

According to Dr. Kelly Tremblay, Neuroscientist and Advocate for Healthy Aging, living longer means having to work for longer, and that requires acquiring new skills.

Dr. Tremblay will be joining us to share how the reality of our future could affect your personal and professional life, and how pivoting careers and returning to school might be advantageous to your career longevity and quality of life.

Charles is the head of a MBA program at Royal Roads University, a school dedicated to late life learners. Thus, he addresses issues related to business school and can share examples from his class.

In this chat, you’ll learn:

  • The changing demographics associated with longevity and how it applies to you and your career
  • How to navigate becoming an older worker, and how to support an aging workforce
  • The importance of work as part of a healthy aging plan
