We can all reasonably expect to enjoy lives that are much longer than previous generations. Longevity is a gift unprecedented in human history. But longer lives and demographic change pose many difficult and complicated questions and our next speaker event will focus on one of the most important of these - FINANCE! Our speakers will be raising some key questions, provoking some thoughts and maybe providing some answers!? Come along for an insight and discussion on some of the important financial issues that arise within an ageing population.

I am one of the Chartered Financial Planners in the UK and a Fellow member of the Personal Finance Society.
As a Partner of St. James’s Place Wealth Management, I provide a wide range of wealth management services to individuals. My emphasis is on maintaining a long-term relationship with my clients and to provide them with a source of trusted advice as their financial needs evolve over the years.
I am a Professor in the School of Design at Northumbria University. Until recently (December 2016) I was a Lecturer at Newcastle University, based in the interdisciplinary Open Lab. My training is in industrial design but my research sits at the intersections of interaction design, human-computer interaction, user experience, social gerontology, participatory research, public service design, and studies of social media.
Since 2004, I have been conducting design research on the topic of technology for later life and transitions across the life course. This has involved working on a range of projects designing digital technologies and services for and with older people - such as developing tangible and physical interfaces for ‘information appliances’ for later life socialisation, designing banking technologies for those who rely on others to help them with their shopping, and exploring intergenerational voluntary care services with groups of young and old caregivers and recipients. While my research on ageing and technology often touches on issues of health, care and independence, my ambition is to engender more positive attitudes towards older people and later life through technology that promotes the joys and triumphs of old age. I also have general interests in participatory, social and user-generated media, peer-to-peer technologies, as well as the role of bottom-up processes and social practice perspectives on money and finance, civic engagement and health and social care.
