On Friday 11th December, Ignata are hosting “The Qx Factor” the first global talent competition for actuaries. The event which will be held on zoom is in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity and aims to lift spirits within the profession this Christmas.
Ignata are looking for singers, magicians, fire-breathers, origami makers, comedians, acrobats and indeed anyone with a special talent to submit a pre-recorded entry, which will be played at the live show.
The live show will be compered by world-record breaking comic and Chief Actuary at RL360, Donald Macleod, who will be joined by a star studded judging panel.
In May 2020, Ignata and Donald Macleod hosted “Laugh, Actuary” the first online comedy club for actuaries. This attracted a sell-out crowd of 500 actuaries from nine countries around the world, in support of Mental Health Awareness week.
The entries to Qx Factor should be three to five minutes long and submitted by Friday 4 December. Please contact Hannah Yates at [email protected] who will provide further details.
