PD-2 - The Problem with Communication is the Illusion that it has occurred

Actuarial work is complicated and difficult to understand and so it is hard for non-actuaries to understand our work. The problem is often exacerbated by actuaries having spent 10,000 or more hours studying technical matters but probably less than 1,000 hours developing communication skills. As actuaries advance in their careers, effective communication becomes more important than analytical work (which can be delegated to capable staff). Also, as actuaries we likely have even less experience in dealing with confrontation which can be critical when communicating bad news. The presenters are writing a paper on this subject.

GS-1 - General Session on Professionalism: "I didn't know the ABCD does THAT!"

The Actuarial Board for Counseling and Discipline (ABCD) is often mistakenly perceived as solely the disciplinary arm of the U.S. actuarial profession. In fact, ABCD members spend the majority of their time in that role responding to requests by fellow actuaries to engage in informal discussions regarding professionalism issues that they confront each and every day. It is not surprising that, as the breadth of issues in which actuaries are involved continues to dramatically expand, this aspect of ABCD work has increased significantly over the past few years. One area that will be specifically touched upon in this session is the applicability of the Actuarial Standards of Practice and the Code of Professional Conduct to actuarial practice in emerging practice areas. In this session, current and past members of the ABCD will conduct mock counselling sessions to illustrate the value actuaries can derive from this important responsibility of the ABCD.

FS - Global Warning: How the New Rules of Innovation Can Transform Businesses, Propel Nations to Greatness, and Tame the World's Most Wicked Problems

Vijay V. Vaitheeswaran, award-winning author and Energy & Climate Innovation Editor of The Economist, will deliver a provocative keynote address that surveys the megatrends reshaping the 21st century global economy, from the prospects for future pandemics to the disruptive and widespread impacts of climate change. Global warming in particular poses enormous challenges, and if left unchecked, could devastate significant parts of the global economy, turn low-lying and vulnerable parts of the world uninhabitable, spread disease and famine and fuel refugee crises. However, a much more open, accelerated and ambitious approach to climate innovation could also produce many solutions over the next decade as every industry in every geography is forced to respond to this existential threat.
