MaRS Business of Aging Summit 2012

The Business of Aging: Wellness in the Workplace A very important topic for our age (pardon the pun). Type A Events was thrilled to once again work with the insightful folks at MaRS Discovery District on their recent Business of Aging Summit 2012. Held in the main MaRS Auditorium, this packed agenda included two keynotes, an Innovation Showcase, 2 panels, 5 Innovation Vignettes, a case study, and an innovation implementation facilitation session. Did I mention this was a 1-day Summit? Our 2 keynotes Dr. Joseph Coughlin, Director, MIT AgeLab and Geoff Mulgan, CEO, NESTA (UK) book-ended this incredible day. Thanks to Dr. Alain Sotto, Chief Physician-Wellness Division at the OPG and Occupational Medical Consultant at the TTC for his thought-provoking case study; and to all our Innovators who are leading the charge in the new understanding of aging in the workplace.
