006 Andrew L'Arpent - Ageing in Common

Listen to 006 Andrew L'Arpent - Ageing in Common

Andrew L'Arpent is Experienced Chairman with a history of working in the ageing industry in the United Kingdom, Australia and across the Commonwealth. 

He served for 30 years as an infantry officer in the British Army.  This culminated in commanding an armoured battlegroup throughout the first Gulf War. In 1992 he was awarded the Order of the British Empire.  After leaving the regular Army, he entered into the ageing industries where he saw the need to connect up the generations and help support older people on an international scale as chairman of CommonAge (or the Commonwealth Association of the Aged).

I just love hearing Andrew’s experiences  Listening to how someone who is a confident and trusted leader can reframe our understanding of aged care to meet the changing needs and expectations of communities and countries. It's a multi-national and multi-cultural challenge. Something he’s helping to tackle right now.

001 Welcome to the Grey Revolution Podcast

Listen to 001 Welcome to the Grey Revolution Podcast

What makes a Millennial want to become a change maker in aged care and an advocate for ageing issues?

Samantha Bowen is a board director, Founding Director of Acorn Network and the host of the Grey Revolution Podcast. Her personal story of resilience and how her Mum's healthcare journey highlighted the need for change, will show that passion for improving care, these workplaces, and getting young people involved in ageing discussions are vital for change to happen.

Aged care and ageing issues are often labelled as "un-sexy". In fact, it is regularly represented in the media when things go horribly wrong. Samantha is passionate about getting young people (Millennials, Gen Ys, Gen Zs) seeing the potential of ageing careers and highlighting how they can get involved in these discussions and this is a fantastic industry to be part of.

Whether it's influencing conversations in boardrooms, building innovative projects from scratch or leading teams in complex environments - Samantha's journey, and the leaders she interviews in future episodes - will inspire you to step up to help shape our industry's future - regardless of where you are in your leadership journey.
