As the only recruiter sponsoring ‘La Nuit des Actuaires,’ GAAPS were proud and privileged to attend the gala on Saturday 28th April. At the lovely location of Le Pavillion Dauphine, it was the sixth year of the event, and it’s not hard to see why this is now a fixed date in everyone’s diary.
As a sponsor, we were invited to enjoy a pre-event buffet with Presidents of Actuarial Institutes, committee members and other sponsors. There were introductions and speeches from Vincent Meister, President of the Kactu’Z Association, President of the Institute of French Actuaries Thomas Behar, the guest speaker Julian Oliver, President of Institute of Spanish Actuaries.
The evening was later then opened to the rest of the French actuarial institute and guests. There were different attractions in each different room including a candy room, (with all the sweets you can dream of), a massage parlour (which was a heaven sent to all us ladies in heels); a dancefloor once the heels had had their rest and a live jazz band to name but a few!
The pavilion was filled with actuaries from all the organisations and from all the levels. Everyone seemed to have a blast – we definitely did and we’re already looking forward to next year!
