Nicosia, 10 September 2021 – The past year has highlighted the fragility of the human body and in particular the vulnerability of the elderly, begging the question: why it is that we become more at risk of disease and physical deterioration as we get older? And importantly, is there anything we can do to slow down the ageing process?

Phoenix Leaders, Cyprus’ first private Members’ Club, will host scientist and writer Andrew Steele for a tour of his fascinating research and best-selling book, Ageless, explaining what actually happens as we age, and practical ways we can implement to decelerate the process on 22 September 2021, at 19:00.

During the course of the evening, Andrew will reveal how understanding the scientific implications of ageing could lead to the greatest revolution in the history of medicine—one that has the potential to improve billions of lives, save trillions of dollars, and transform the human condition.

This will mark the latest in The Club’s Discussion Series, which aims to bring international speakers from diverse fields of expertise to Cyprus. Previous speakers have included Bruce Daisley, Former European Vice President of Twitter and Expert on Work Culture, Dr Francis Fukuyama, Professor of Political Science at Stanford University and best-selling author, Sir John Sawers, Former Head of the MI6, Herman van Rompuy, Former Prime Minister of Belgium and Former President of the European Council, Professor Vybarr Cregan-Reid, Nigel Jeremy, Head of Learning & Development at British Airways and Jules Chappell, Britain’s youngest Ambassador.

Valentina Kislaya, CEO of Phoenix Leaders, said: “The past year has forced us to take a long hard look at our own physical and mental well-being and ask uncomfortable questions about the way we live our lives. I am delighted to welcome Andrew Steele to The Club to shed some light on the ageing process and how we can improve our own lifestyles to really get the most out of our lives.”
