Technology makes it possible to communicate with someone at the other side of the world. Countries such as China and India are producing many qualified, English-speaking actuaries every year. As actuaries, how do we survive and succeed in the upcoming competition? Is the threat real? As company leaders, how can we increase efficiency and reduce operating risks? Can outsourcing be used to benefit both the company employees as well as the company’s bottom line? Speakers will provide real-life examples and experienced insight. At the conclusion of the session, attendees will understand the impacts of globalization to themselves, their organization and the profession. They should be encouraged to develop more portable skills, delegate tasks and facilitate communication.
