The woman you see in the middle of the stage has dementia for 20 years and she is still a brilliant speaker. Her name is Christine Bryden, Dementia advocate and writer.
Other panellists are: Ita Buttrose AO, OBE - journalist, author and National Ambassador for Alzheimer's Australia; Scientia Professor Henry Brodaty - Co-director, Centre for Healthy brain Ageing and Dementia Collaborative Research Centre UNSW; Professor Kaarin Anstey - Director, Centre of Research on Ageing, Health and Well-being and Dementia Collaborative Research Centre, ANU; Dr Zoe Terpening, Clinical Neuropsychologist, Brain and Mind Research Institute, Sydney Uni.
The talk has been moderated by Paul Barclay from ABC Radio National.
I found the panel stimulating until the end including the questions from the audience, so I invite you to listen the entire talk.
You can watch the video from youtube (see above) or from the original source that is in the ABC Big Ideas website: http://www.abc.net.au/tv/bigideas/stories/2014/10/16/4108449.htm

But, since I live in England, I want to share with you also a British one:
