General Session 2: What is Real?  Unlocking the Positions of Business Partners to Create Winning Conditions and Achieve Maximum Impact

Christine Hofbeck, FSA, MAAA

As actuaries and other professionals advance throughout their careers, they can achieve greater levels of success and faster progression by being able to identify ‘What is Real?’ In this presentation, Christine will help attendees diagnose and respond to the real motivations and positions of colleagues and business partners both internal and external to their organizations and professional circles for more effective communication, stronger relationships, and increased likelihood of success. Christine will share personal stories drawn directly from her professional actuarial career and her participation on a reality television show to illustrate various considerations for optimal interactions and outcomes. We can all create winning conditions if we can learn to recognize, identify, and understand ‘What is Real?’

    Christine has been an actuary for 25 years, working across a breadth of areas including Life (retirement & group insurance) and Property & Casualty (consumer & commercial). She specializes in building predictive analytics and advanced pricing capabilities for large global insurers. Her work has been featured in publications including The ActuarySync magazine, and National Geographic’s documentary television series Breakthrough. She holds degrees from the University of Pennsylvania and MIT, and currently serves on the Society of Actuaries Executive Board of Directors.

    Christine (“Chrissy”) also competed on season 35 of CBS’s hit reality TV show, SURVIVOR: Heroes vs Healers vs Hustlers, which aired in the fall of 2017. Despite being the oldest player in the game, she placed 2nd overall and tied the record for the most individual immunity wins by a woman in Survivor history. She also won "Player of the Season" in a landslide vote by Survivor fans.
