Dr Catherine Rickwood is a thought leader, age diversity consultant, speaker, and communicator that designs age diversity growth programs for organisations and NPO’s. As an experienced researcher and business executive, she has the rare talent of being able to practically use and apply academic knowledge into a commercial environment.
Dr Rickwood is particularly curious about what prevents people from being more optimistic about ageing. And, she's unafraid to challenge the status quo so that we might embrace longer lifespans and reinvent our life at any age. Her fearlessness is founded in a belief that life for people, organisations, communities and the planet can be enriched if we explore our preconceived ideas about becoming older.
