Call for speakers

Due to the global COVID-19 situation the IFoA continues to review its events programme. Our primary goal is to ensure the well being of our members and employees, while minimising the disruption to our service. Many of our events have been successfully reformatted as webinars or other forms of digital delivery. Therefore we would still like to encourage you to submit proposals for any call for speakers listed below. There are a number of future opportunities to speak at an event or webinar, and we still welcome proposals from members and non-members on technical and business skill subjects.

How to submit your proposal to speak at a conference or event or suggest a topic for a presentation

As part of your submission we request the following:

  • The title and description of your session
  • The primary topic of your session 
  • The anticipated delegate learning outcome/experience from your presentation
  • Contact details and names of all proposed speakers

If you want to nominate a speaker or topic, but do not want to speak yourself, we are also keen to hear from you.

Please note that by submitting an application you are agreeing to allow your name and contact details to be passed onto the organisation committee who may contact you regarding your submission.

For additional information please email eventmanagement@actuaries.org.uk | telephone +44 (0)20 7632 1498


Health & Care Lifelong Learning Webinar Programme 2021

The IFoA’s Health & Care Lifelong Learning Committee is continuing to develop the CPD programme for 2021. The programme includes regular monthly webinars, which have been running successfully since February.

As we move towards the second half of this year, we are inviting further applications from potential speakers who would like to be part of this programme. We would also welcome ideas for subjects that members would like us to cover along with any suggested speakers that we might approach. Approaches are welcome from all types of employment (eg insurer, reinsurer, consultancies, actuary and other relevant professional areas).

We aim to cover a diverse topic range which will appeal to the Health & Care community both in the UK and overseas. Where possible, sessions may include interactive elements, encourage discussion between delegates and sharing of views. However, given the online nature of the CPD provision this year, where a presenter feels a pre-recorded, audio-only, or other form of delivery better suits their material we are able to offer these alternative approaches.

In addition to traditional Health and Care product areas we are keen to cover broader topics of appeal to our community. Some example areas of interest include, but are not limited to;

  • Business in the post Brexit era
  • Social Care
  • International Markets
  • Workplace wellbeing

Please submit your abstract here. All submissions must be made by Friday 28 May.

    Mathematical Futures: The Actuary in a World Transformed – Sir Adrian Smith will outline how advances in data science, machine learning and artificial intelligence in the world of big data will transform the nature of many industries, including financial services.

These changes will undoubtedly have an impact on the work of actuaries - and the profession will need to adapt quickly to thrive.

    Risk Management Webinar ProgrammeInternal audit is often the Cinderella of the audit world. It’s a regulatory requirement for insurance companies to have an internal audit function, so why not make it as useful as possible?  This session will look at how to link an internal audit plan to the risk register, and how that helps audit committees and boards to spot problems and fix them.
