Practical classical ethics training for professionals
This will be an introductory course in classical ethics.
Compared to mainstream religious ethics, classical ethics is less about moralizing and more about practical usefulness.
The focus is on living a better life, achieving superior results and on how to best handle the challenging situations.
The course is less of a tick box exercise and instead one that will give practical examples showing the usefulness of understanding and being able to apply classical ethical principles in the workplace.
These principles are of particular importance to help actuaries best deal with difficult situations where an actuary might need to blow the whistle. When in such a position, and not knowing how best to handle it, an actuary could be damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t.
Can classical ethics help an actuary in such a difficult scenario? Come along to the course to find out and learn more about classical ethics.
