|Voices in Aging (VIA) Sessions|
The inaugural 2017 VIA Sessions will focus on the Business of Aging.
Unparalleled societal aging and longevity demands creative and innovative responses from businesses positioning themselves to thrive in this marketplace. Businesses serving older adults need an understanding of the older adult consumer and the adaptations in product functions, service design, marketing and ethical considerations that are necessary for success.
The Business of Aging VIA Sessions will provide opportunities for attendees to interact with subject matter experts, coaches and other participants to explore and analyze their own businesses through the lens of our changing age demographic. Participants will be encouraged to develop the knowledge, skills, attitudes and competencies needed for decision making, problem solving, and imagination that are most valued in today’s successful aging enterprises. Attendees will review their own businesses, identify areas for improvement, develop specific objectives and incorporate new opportunities.
The VIA Sessions will incorporate a team approach using a World Café and workshop format over 2 days with exciting opportunities to begin the conversations prior to the live sessions and continue the conversations after the live sessions end.
The 2017 Voices in Aging (VIA) Sessions will be comprised of 3 segments:
Pre-Session Activities – May 2017 to October 2017
Live VIA Sessions – November 3 – 5, 2017
Post Session Activities – November 2017 to April 2018
