THE Centre for Ageing Better welcomes three new trustees, Nuzhat Ali, Liz Ericson and Greg Parston, to its Board. They will work to help fulfil Ageing Better’s mission to create a society in which everyone enjoys later life.

Nuzhat Ali is a National Health Improvement Lead for Public Health England. She began her career in the NHS as a front-line clinician, nearly 30 years ago, she continues to ensure that in all her work the impact on individuals is not forgotten. She is also Chair and Founder of a London based women’s voluntary group, which aims to engage and connect with ’seldom heard’ local women to encourage participation in civic activity and develop resilience. She is also Trustee on the Board of Merton Voluntary Services Council and provides visible leadership to other forums.

Nuzhat is passionate about diversity, ’inclusion’ and advocating for intersectionality. She was awarded the inaugural Civil Service Championing Faith and Belief Inclusion Award in October 2019. In September 2019 she was elected by peers as a Co-Chair for a Cross Civil Service Faith Network.

Liz Ericson is a Partner in McKinsey & Company’s London office. She leads the Firm’s Alliances and Acquisitions, overseeing technology alliances, as well as the Firm’s collaboration network and M&A activity.

Liz spent her first nine years at the firm in McKinsey Digital and Marketing and Sales, where she focused on digital transformations. Her clients were primarily in the Consumer Goods and Retail sectors and she is an expert in consumer-facing digital topics with expertise in digital strategy, omnichannel, digital marketing and product management.

Liz often speaks at industry events on these topics including TEDx, LinkedIn TalentConnect, RetailWeek, Google’s Retail Advisory Council, McKinsey BLINK and more. She also leads McKinsey’s global recruiting at INSEAD and Women’s hiring efforts.

Greg Parston is a Visiting Professor at the Institute of Global Health Innovation, Imperial College London, where until 2019 he was Executive Advisor to the Director, leading IGHI’s research on the diffusion of healthcare innovation. He is also Chair of Dartington Hall Trust, a progressive centre for learning in ecology, arts and social justice in Devon, and Chair of Riverside Trust and Studios, a centre for performing arts, film, and television production in Hammersmith, London.

Greg co-founded the Office for Public Management and established Accenture’s Institute for Public Service Value; he also co-founded Take Our Daughters to Work UK, devised the Transition to Adulthood (T2A) scheme to help prevent youth offending and was an originator of the community interest company (CIC) in the UK.

In the five years since the Centre for Ageing Better was founded, it has established itself as a credible evidence-based change organisation. It has influenced policy and practice across its priorities of homes, health, work and communities as well as shaping the national debate on ageing. As it looks to have a significant and lasting impact on the lives of those approaching later life and at risk of missing out on good later life, the organisation is bringing diverse skills and experience to add to those of existing Board members.

Anna Dixon, Chief Executive, Centre for Ageing Better said:

“I am delighted to welcome our new Trustees to the Board, each brings a unique perspective and experience that will be of great value in supporting our organisation to achieve its goal of creating a society in which everyone enjoys later life.

“They join us at an exciting time where we are looking to build on our incredible achievements over the past five years and focus on how we continue to create change in policy and practice informed by evidence.”
