On 19th October 2022, our 9th Live Longer Better (LLB) National Event was held, but for the first time – an in-person event at Burton Albion Football Club – an excellent community location.
The theme for the event was The Four R’s: Reconditioning. Rejuvenation. Risk reduction. Revolution.
Delegates came together to challenge, discuss and explore what we can and must do, to really address the challenge laid down by Sir Muir Gray, regarding the Four R’s. The event included visionary insights, case spotlights and compelling evidence. Some excellent presentations from expert speakers were shared as well as video contributions, whilst also enabling the much missed truly interactive and networking sessions. 99% of responders considered the event met their expectations rating this either ‘very good’ or ‘excellent’!
