IFoA/SOAT Joint Professional Skills Training Event 2019

Invitation to the IFoA/SOAT Joint Professional Skills Training Event 

The Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) and Society of Actuaries of Thailand (SOAT) are organising a joint Professional Skills Training (PST) event on Wednesday, 30 January 2019.


Ocean Life Insurance PCL, Meeting room 1, 24th Floor, 170/74-83 Ocean Tower 1 Building, Rachadapisek Road, Klongtoey, Bangkok 10110, Thailand

There is limited parking at this venue.  Attendees are encouraged to use public transportation.  The nearest BTS station is Asoke.

We would like to thank Ocean Life Insurance PCL for sponsoring the venue.


08.30-09.00: Registration

09.00-10.00: PST – Part 1

10.00-10.30: Refreshment break

10.30-11.30: PST – Part 2

This session is suitable for actuaries working in any area (i.e. it is not specifically aimed at Life, GI or any other technical discipline) and is interactive, so you should come along prepared to take part in the discussions.

Video case studies will be selected from the IFoA’s 2018/19 online content which covers a range of topics under an overarching theme of “Getting it right!”

Whether it’s how we communicate, present our findings, or conduct negotiations; we always need to be professional.  This includes being able to support our position, ensure the other party knows and understands what we have done and why, treating others with respect and being prepared to “call out” inappropriate behaviours.

This year’s videos will explore some of the possible challenges in achieving this and also looks at some of the potential pitfalls in using social media.

We aim to avoid overlap with case studies used at other IFoA and SOAT events, but cannot guarantee that there will be no duplication in content.
