A Presentation About Presentations: Creating the “Dynamic Actuary”

Most actuaries are regularly called upon to present complex concepts to varied audiences. The more that actuaries can improve upon their presentation skills, the greater their visibility grows within an organization (primary insurer, reinsurer, consulting firm, brokerage house). Today, actuaries are counted on to present actionable information to CEOs, CFOs, and boards of directors, in addition to clients and peers at industry conferences.

Like many business people in general, some actuaries are averse to making presentations; or, they lack the experience and/or confidence to be effective speakers. This session will help actuaries devise a game plan for confronting the fear of “performing” in front of an audience. The goal of the session is to help presenters build confidence by identifying individual strengths in communication skills, which will help to override weaknesses when it comes to presenting.

Specifically, the session will consist of fun and playful “mock” presentations by groups (not individuals) of six-to-eight to help all individuals identify and meld personal and professional strengths and traits to create themselves into the “Dynamic Actuary.”

This lively, interactive breakfast session moderated by the Chicago based Robert C Morand is open to all members and guests.
