Six experts on HW&H - recovery and the future
Accompanying the launch of our Health, Wealth & Happiness 20/21 report, three podcasts - one for each section - bring you, the listener, a roundtable discussion chaired by LifeSearch CEO Tom Baigrie, and featuring a panel of expert guests.
The panel discuss salient findings from the report, the road ahead and what changes may be in store as we try to learn lessons from an unprecedented pandemic experience.
The future we’re walking into, certainly short term, looks complex, certainly for our health, our wealth and our happiness.
Listen as our experts deconstruct the report, the present and the future, brought to you by the same team behind LifeSearch’s popular Searching for Elephants podcast.
Let’s meet the panel:
