With just about every podcast guest I record a short sound check by having them read a precept of the code of conduct. I choose the precept deliberately to try to spark a conversation and sometimes it actually works! All for your benefit, actuaries. Enjoy!
Recorded at the Casualty Loss Reserve Seminar recorded in September 2018. We spent a bit more time tailoring the content towards Actuarial Topics or at last taking an actuarial angle on the topics presented. Send me an email at david at notunreasonable.com with feedback!
I did another Not Unprofessional Panel at The Casualty Actuaries of Greater New York (CAGNY) with Don Mango and Todd Bault, who were fantastic.
Here is Todd’s Bio:

Since getting into producing professionalism content, I’ve had a chance to spend a lot of time reading the precepts. Here is what I think of them!
When I first got my designation, I was told that if, at the end of the year, we hadn’t quite made it through all of the required 3 ‘hours’ of CE content that we could sit and quietly read the precepts of the code of conduct to satisfy our requirement. Boring, yes!
Well, if you want to get through a bunch of precepts then why not have just a recording of them instead of putting your eyes through all that strain! Your poor eyes.
This is me reading the precepts of the code of conduct.
