Health actuaries are part of important social narratives around the world. And with a complex field like actuarial science, sometimes the ability to effectively tell a story is the difference between success and failure. This session looks at the psychological and cultural roots of how we construct stories and explores how we can become better writers and storytellers. It includes tangible examples from across the actuarial field.  

Learning Outcomes:

Attendees will leave this session equipped with new tools for writing, storytelling, and articulating complex topics. We also guarantee some laughs.
