Who am I?
I’m an actuary who happens to have a great deal of enthusiasm for technology, among other things. I’m particularly intrigued by what’s happening in the realm of social media, collaborative technologies, and Enterprise 2.0. The opinions and views expressed in this blog are my own and do not necessarily reflect the views of any organization with which I’m employed or for who I render services.
I created this blog to share information that actuaries, risk management professionals, and other professionals in insurance and finance may find useful in their careers and personal lives.
How can I help you?
There is an important but often overlooked challenge in the world of insurance and risk management. Lots of us are good with numbers, but our skills are wasted if we can’t explain complicated things to non-technical audiences.
It always comes down to story telling. Whether you’re trying to explain the results of a complex model to senior management or trying to convey your work to a client, if you don’t frame the story correctly, all your efforts to that point are in vain.
Effective story telling punctuates your work. If you need help writing, brainstorming, or articulating a story for yourself or business, let me know.
