No it’s ok - mountains bigger than the waves - always!

Congratulations to latest @RWTH_TIME doctor, Christian Burmeister with his work on openness in business models

⁦@lyndagratton⁩ It’s not only one stakeholder that will support effective lifelong learning- we must work together #ICAM2019

The New Education Agenda: ✅ Human Strengths ✅ Lifelong Learning ✅ Multi-stage Life ✅ Collaborative ✅ Credentials @lyndagratton @LBS #ICAM2019 @AACSBevents

We are living longer in an era of intense disruption and continuous change. We don’t need 10 year strategic plans, people need to be upskilled and re-skilled now. #Bschools need to help them do that. | @lyndagratton #icam2019 @AACSBevents #lifelonglearning

5 key focuses for ⭐️The New Education Agenda⭐️: focus on core human strengths, become age agnostic, support a multistage life, create a collaborative system of educational providers, and build stackable and portable credentials. #ICAM19

Great to be talking at #AACSB today - Business schools must support people to prepare for the future

"In fact, as the 21st century advances, staff are likely to feel a more intense pressure to put in extra hours and to demonstrate usefulness, as machines take on humdrum tasks. "

Fascinating chart on how100m times vary by age for fittest in world. Neat way inferring how much physical slowdown due to ageing&how much behaviour/sedentary lifestyle “regular exercise more effective than any drug..prevent conditions facing older people”

Benefits of #FourDayWeek could be better health, better ideas and could even help us live until 100. Encouraging debate @guardianlive with @askpang @The_TUC @lyndagratton @BritSafe

Great events - in gorgeous Venice - fascinating conversations

@lyndagratton leaves delegate with food for thought: 1: forget age and family stereotypes 2. Ignore generation labels- we all want the same thing and 3. Look forward to a wonderful life! #INREVevents

Everyone’s discussing #futureofwork, #robotics, #AI and 4th industrial revolution, however there is an insufficient discussion on how to transition - as individuals, biz & govt. @lyndagratton, @Dlancefield and I discussed this on a recent podcast

Really looking forward to our mindset conference at London Business School - #LBSmindsets

What a pleasure and privilege to be here! Listened to the very insightful @lyndagratton #oraclewomenlead @oraclewomenlead

Great evening at the Guardian @guardian

Noo - move away from that cooker Candace

We’re moving to a more fluid, flexible, multistage & maybe fragile life. Therefore managing transitions becomes more important. Enriching discussion on how to do this with @lyndagratton @LBS & @bhushansethi1 @PwC in my latest Transformation Talks #podcast

Revisiting this brief conversation I had with @lyndagratton about the importance of friendship in a #100yearlife
