ACTEX eLearning Webinar Recording:
High-Impact Actuarial Communication
1.5 SOA/EA CPD, CAS CE Credits/Training Hours
As an actuary,
- Do you struggle to meaningfully communicate technical concepts to a non-technical audience?
- Do your presentations usually involve going through mounds of data leaving your audience confused or overwhelmed?
- Do you wonder how to better engage your audience when you communicate your analysis or pricing results?
- Would you like to have more impact on your audience when you present your work product?
One of the main criticisms of actuaries is that they don't know how to effectively communicate technical information to non-technical people. Presentations are rich with data, but lacking the meaningful interpretation that management needs to make strategic decisions. Actuaries are viewed as holding a “black box” where they cannot adequately explain the business implications of their results.
Past surveys by both the SOA and ACTEX have shown that employers and executives perceive a need for actuaries to improve both their leadership and communications skills.To fill this need, ACTEX is partnering with Dave Miller, a communications and leadership expert who is also an actuary himself, with this first in a series of webinars.
Participants will learn:
- The difference between masterful and adequate communicators
- What are the Culture Wars in every situation an actuary communicates?
- What you must absolutely know to successfully navigate communicating to executives,
- How to present in a way so your non-technical audience members really get it
- How to make sure you “hit the mark” every time
- 8 specific techniques to maximize the impact of your communication,
- A technique when communicating to senior management that will become your secret weapon
