The Percolator Sessions: How will technology in healthcare impact our ageing society?

Fourth Floor Corporate Hub, Newcastle Business School, City Campus East, Northumbria University, Newcastle upon Tyne 

The Percolator Sessions is a programme of breakfast sessions that are part of a University initiative to bring together the Wealth and Private Client Management sector to discuss some of the biggest issues facing our society.

In this inaugural session our academics will provide an overview of the research work that Northumbria is currently undertaking, allowing you to gain an insight into how we are tackling topics such as:

  • Ageing and loneliness
  • Managing sleep in the modern world; and
  • Countering the fear of falling using technology

You will also have the opportunity to discuss the implications of these topics on the wealth management sector.

Speakers for this session will include:

Dr Catherine Bailey, Associate Professor in Ageing

Julie Dick, Senior Lecturer in Accounting and Financial Management

Dr Anthony Devine, Lecturer and Programme Leader in Accounting and Financial Management. 


A light breakfast of tea/coffee, pastries and fresh fruit will be served at 8am.
