What Andrew Scott's clients say
"Andrew has been an ever present speaker and lecturer on our flagship leadership programme since 2007. He is a genuinely authentic and engaging speaker, with some great stories to tell and a very insightful and informative style. Always a great favourite with the participants for providing a great balance between challenging and informing."
"Fujitsu has really benefited from Professor Andrew Scott's deep insight into a diverse range of macro-economic topics including Sustainability and the 100 year life. The purpose of the sessions has been to better equip our senior people to be able to have 'non-agenda' conversations with key clients to start to unlock and create extra value for our clients - and we are already seeing this investment paying dividends!"
"Andrew provided an overview of European market dynamics to a group of senior executives from many different disciplines across the GE businesses. He approached the subject, which could be a little dry, with energy, enormous insight and a wry humour! He gauged very well both the expertise and interest levels of the audience and tailored the talk accordingly. It received consistently excellent feedback from the attendees who described better understanding the complexities of the economic environment but also valued hearing a point of view rather than mere facts and figures. I can't recommend Andrew highly enough and wouldn't hesitate to ask him to speak for me again."
"Living 100 years and working productively for the greater part of them will soon be a reality. That means that life stages as we know them have to be reinvented. Gratton and Scott's wonderful book prepares us - individuals, organisations and societies - for the possibilities of this brave new world of longevity and teaches us what it will take to thrive in it."
"For Macroeconomics: Understanding the Global Economy: 'This is a timely, fascinating and thought provoking book, full of wonderful information about the potential of a 100-year life. A brilliant read for individuals but it should be mandatory reading for our politicians and those responsible for planning in health and social and social care."
"For The 100 Year Life: 'Lynda Gratton and Andrew Scott have written an important and highly readable analysis of the problem that most governments and corporations would prefer to ignore. A lot of us are going to live a lot longer than our grandparents - indeed, more than half of today's kids will live to be 100. This has implications for much more than just our personal finances. Our entire lives, they argue convincingly, will need to be reconfigured to deal with the unprecedented lifespans we are being granted. Required reading for baby boomers and millennials alike."
"The conference went very well. The feedback has been excellent - especially on Andrew's speech, as he scored the highest rating of all speakers... very impressive! People found it really motivating and inspiring, and it helped them to understand what journey we are on, which was our main intention by having Andrew as speaker at the conference."
"Feedback has been thoroughly positive from both the internal and external event Andrew kindly presented in. He provided such an insightful session that benefitted the audience greatly Not only did Andrew deliver an educational speech he brought a delightful humour to the rooms which was wonderful. Andrew was a pleasure to work with on the day and I'm very grateful he made the time to attend both sessions."
"We had a very warm receptive audience for Andrew Scott yesterday. We could have had him speak for a lot longer. His topic will have certainly provoked some thinking about longevity and its impact on society."

About Andrew Scott
Andrew Scott is Professor of Economics at London Business School, Co-founder of The Longevity Forum and an award-winning speaker, author and researcher.
Andrew is the author of the global bestseller “The 100 Year Life” which offers a compellingly different view of an ageing society and how it represents a major opportunity for us all. In general, Andrew focuses on the major trends that are reshaping the world around us – from longevity and technology through to political and social upheaval.
Andrew speaks with clarity, conviction and insight on a range of issues to help the audience know how they need to position themselves in response to these changes.
Combines deep intelligence and broad knowledge, sharp humour and clear communication to make audience aware of what is happening and what they need to do. Suitable for small intimate action orientated settings through to large audiences requiring impactful speech.
Andrew Scott’s highly acclaimed 2016 book “The Hundred Year Life” is an international best seller, runner up for the FT-McKinsey book of the Year and inspired the Japanese Prime Minister to establish a Council for Living to 100 Years. In the book Andrew shows how the fact that children born today have a plausible chance of living to a 100 is leading to a profound transformation in how we live our life that affects us all. In it he argues that firms need to position themselves now if they are to succeed in understanding the behaviour of their customers and their employees as everything around us changes and adapts to the hundred year life.
Andrew’s second book, “The New Long Life, A Framework for Flourishing in a Changing World” focuses on how technology, longevity and social changes are exerting a fundamental change in society and the economy. It lists what individuals, companies and governments need to make the most of this changing world. As Mr Spock remarked to Captain Kirk “Its life Jim, but not as we know it”. The future requires very different practices than the past and Andrew’s new book tells us what they are.
He has worked with a wide range of firms and sectors and can tailor his message across the globe as well as to an audience, whether of finance specialists, HR experts or broad based general Management.

Andrew Scott's 2022 talks & topics
In the EU referendum on 23 June, do you think Britain should vote to remain in the EU or leave?
Britain will have less control over Europe if it is not part of it, according to Professor Andrew Scott. And a vote to leave the EU would lead to a loss of trade and possibly devaluation of the pound.
This video is the fifth in a series of interviews with some of our world class faculty. We speak to London Business School’s Dean, Professor Sir Andrew Likierman, and leading economists Richard Portes, Lucrezia Reichlin, Hélène Rey and Andrew Scott, about the economic consequences for Europe if Britain exits the EU.
