I am really happy to have been part of the talk. It was very insightful and please keep doing more of this. I am a data science student currently but I have an actuarial background. I worked in life insurance for about 5 months before resigning to do my masters in Data science so that I blend the actuarial world and Data science together. The talk gave me perspective. Even suggested some potential topics for my Thesis.
Webinars
It was a really good introduction to Data Science and afterwards I felt that I now have a platform that I could use to further my understanding in this area.
Webinars
Thank you for having me along. I really found it the most motivating conversation I’ve had in a while, and made me think about what I’m trying to achieve within this area. We all need evenings like that to get some perspective on what we *think* is going on and what actually is.  It was a very good evening.
Round Table
I love your videos - being free and accessible really helped me. The Q&A session was fantastic! It always comes down to execution and I feel this should always accompany your presentations - answering the question of how will your participants use what you give them. Keep up the great work!
Round Table
I think I’m [one of the first actuaries in my area] who are pointing towards Data Science, creating the new [role] of Actuarial data Scientist. For this reason i [sic] decided to follow a post graduate master in Business Intelligence and Big data analytics. I'm actively following your company and i [sic] think it is one of the best Actuarial consulting company [sic] who [sic] is pointing towards data Science!
Webinar
I just wanted to say what an interesting presentation that was.  Thank you so much for taking the time to put this on for us, it is very much appreciated by all – especially the flexibility around hosting as a webinar instead of the original [in-person] format.  It worked very well indeed!
Webinars
Short note to say really enjoyed today’s webinar. It had a very clear message. […]  fully in agreement with the comments that it is imperative we maintain our professional and ethical stance at all times if we want to continue to be trusted and relied on.
