The 2017 Actuaries Summit is the Institute’s premier event and will be held at the Grand Hyatt Melbourne, Sunday 21 - Wednesday 23 May 2017. The Summit will give delegates the chance to network extensively with the expected 550+ delegates, gain in-depth insights and analysis, engage in five plenary sessions and 56 concurrent sessions and hear from topical and informative speakers.
Actuaries are well known for their ability to think creatively. The theme for the 2017 Summit is Think Differently; the program will be encouraging delegates to think outside of their usual scope. The program plans to explore the following questions:
- How does the profession need to change to meet the exciting opportunities that are appearing daily?
- Should actuaries be more involved in diversity and inclusion; climate change; low yield environments; digital innovation, the changing marketplace?
- How should Actuaries define themselves going forward? Should domain specific nomenclature still be used, or is it time to merge teams of life insurance and GI Actuaries?
Save the date in your diary and be sure to be a part of this thought-provoking, relevant and interesting Summit!
