A GLOBAL COMMUNITY & LEARNING HUB FOR

THE MODERN ACTUARY

(Special Summit Launch Price)

Actuary Vs Machine

ProActuary started as a blog four years ago in a shipping container in Phoenix, Arizona! The exact one you can see in this photo.

This was my temporary abode for a few days having just arrived in Phoenix on a Fulbright Scholarship to research how wearable data can be used by actuaries in insurance.

The very first ProActuary blog was inspired by my research and thoughts on the global effects of technology as I marvelled at the many autonomous vehicles I passed while driving around Phoenix (it was being used as an AI testing field). I was also thinking about the impacts of technology on our profession and the increasing need for growth - both professional and personally - to thrive and succeed. The blog post, from September 2017, was titled 'Can the Actuarial Profession Survive?' and the main ideas discussed the need to embrace technology, ongoing learning and a growth mindset.

What I didn't know then was that the ideas in this first blog post would continue to represent much of ProActuary's underlying ethos. And that 3 years later this would lead us to create "The Digital Actuary Virtual Summit" in 2020, and "The Growth Actuary Summit" in 2021.

What is Coming Next for you.....

How to Optimize, Accelerate and Grow

As ProActuary grows we are continually thinking about what more we can do to help actuaries to develop and embrace challenges in this ever changing landscape of risk and uncertainty.

So how are we going to do this, moving forward?

Well, right now we are opening up our private community and learning space: ProActuary Connect.

This will be a learning hub and community of like-minded actuaries to:

1. Optimize your actuarial potential.

2. Accelerate your career progression.

3. Grow and develop your skills holistically.

We are creating the resource I wish existed at the beginning and throughout my actuarial career.

If you want to learn how to optimize, accelerate and grow as an Actuary, there are opportunities coming your way...

The ProActuary Connect Community

So with the opportunities and challenges that are inevitably going to come our way, let me tell you more about what we are doing through ProActuary Connect.

Here's what to expect as a ProActuary Connect member:

#1: Community & Networking

Community and Networking (launching July) will be at the heart of what we offer.

You will be joining a growth network of motivated perpetual learners working together to motivate, guide and help each other.

We will provide access to a cutting-edge global actuarial social network platform via our bespoke app (see below) as well as facilitating networking/brainstorming sessions so we can all learn together.

We will also provide a modern discussion forum and a 24/7 virtual networking lounge where you can mix with other actuaries across the globe.

#2: World Class Courses

As part of the ProActuary Connect Community you will get access to our growing suite of certified Actuarial courses, designed by the best in their field. Delivering what is most relevant to you as you grow as an Actuary.

Our courses will enhance your actuarial career by ensuring you stay abreast with the ever-changing landscape of Actuarial Science. So you remain a highly valuable and informed Actuary as our profession grows into wider fields and technologies continue to change the work we do.

Initial Certified Courses: Data Science, Climate Change, Emotional Intelligence, Smart Study Skills

1) Fundamentals of Data Science for Actuaries (launching September 2021). This course is being developed by an experienced Actuary in conjunction with a professor in Actuarial Science, with input from a number of data scientists.

2) Sustainability & Climate Change Modelling for Actuaries (launching October 2021). This course is being developed by a leading climate change professor, whose specialist interests include mathematical modelling for climate change risk forecasting, in conjunction with actuaries currently working in this area. 

3) How to develop your Emotional Intelligence and Resilience in the Workplace (launching November 2021). This course is being developed by ProActuary's resident Psychologist and Co-Founder, Suzanne Farrell.

Suzanne is a Practicing Psychologist and has specialist skills in individual and group consultancy where she uses solution-focused, systematic approaches to help others solve complex problems.

4) Unconventional Study Skills: How to Learn Better & Faster (launching December 2021). This course is being developed by ProActuary's resident Actuary and Co-Founder, Dr Mark Farrell. Mark has over 20 years experience in the actuarial field and has spent the last 11 years teaching Actuarial Science at a leading UK University.

As a member-centric and agile start-up company, our future course development will be largely dictated by you! We will source the best possible instructors globally. As an agile start-up we are fast. And we can easily listen to our members. This means if you want something new, we will immediately know and within days (not years!) we will work to make it happen (within reason!).
