During the past year or so I have spoken about how much the world, the actuarial profession and the IFoA have changed throughout my career. I’ve seen fax take over from telex, only to be displaced by email and the web. Instant messaging and video calls are normal, rather than sci-fi fantasies. Spreadsheets appeared, dominated, and now compete with more powerful data analytic tools. It really is a different world today, and yesterday’s skillset isn’t adequate to deal with it.
The inaugural IFoA Conference is taking place on 22–23 June. We’re delighted to be back and look forward to welcoming you to our first in-person, cross-practice conference. By attending in-person, you will have an opportunity to choose from two days of technical, thought-provoking sessions, as well as being able to interact with the speakers and network with peers within the exhibition area. If you can’t join us in-person, a virtual conference ticket is also available.
