Heading to Chicago

Next Monday I head off to the Society of Actuaries Annual Meeting in Chicago.  I’m giving talks at two sessions: the first one on Monday afternoon is called Being Social–It’s a Game Changer.  It is meant to introduce and encourage actuaries in the use of social media.  My next blog post is going going to explain how I built my blog, and some broad concepts on how I use social media.  The slide deck I am not using because it is an interactive session and not a talk can be found here: My Sojourns in Social Media.

The next day, on Tuesday morning, I am giving a modified version of a talk I have given several times before for the session Systemic Risk: Early Warning Indicators.  Here’s my slide deck for the talk: Who Dares Oppose a Boom? And, Can you Predict a Bust?  It’s a variation on this blog post of mine, Who Dares Oppose a Boom?

Finally, I will end up doing a live video blog for the SOA that afternoon before returning home late Tuesday.  I did not know that the SOA would like me so much after ending being a dues-paying member. 😉

I will possibly have some time to meet with people around these sessions, so if you are in the area, let me know and maybe you can drop by.
