Professional Skills Training event - Jointly organised by the IFoA and the Society of Actuaries of Thailand (SOAT)

Wednesday 30 January 2019 08:30 - 11:30

Jointly organised by the IFoA and SOAT, this session held in Bangkok is suitable for actuaries working in any area (i.e. it is not specifically aimed at Life, GI or any other technical discipline) and is interactive, so you should come along prepared to take part in the discussions. 

Video case studies will be selected from the IFoA’s 2018/19 online content which covers a range of topics under an overarching theme of “Getting it right!”

Whether it’s how we communicate, present our findings, or conduct negotiations; we always need to be professional.  This includes being able to support our position, ensure the other party knows and understands what we have done and why, treating others with respect and being prepared to “call out” inappropriate behaviours.

This year’s videos will explore some of the possible challenges in achieving this and also looks at some of the potential pitfalls in using social media.

We aim to avoid overlap with case studies used at other IFoA and SOAT events, but cannot guarantee that there will be no duplication in content.

Up to 2 hours of Stage 3 PST under the IFoA’s 2018/19 CPD Scheme.  For members of other international bodies, you may record this as Professionalism hours according to your respective CPD schemes.
