Three things COVID-19 has taught me

COVID-19 has forced a profound change in the working environment for many businesses. This has indeed been my experience at McGing Advisory & Actuarial. Particularly, COVID-19 from a worker perspective has forced us to become greater wielders of technology, as we find new ways to organise workflows, communicate with clients and provide quality service to them.

How 2020 has challenged leadership

COVID-19 has been the single all encompassing internal and external driver for organisations. It has changed the focus of leaders and exposed good and bad leadership – not unlike Warren Buffet’s investment mantra that “only when the tide goes out do you discover who’s been swimming naked”!

Managing Our Mental State

Why yoga can beat the black dog

According to the Black Dog Institute, ‘Australians have been impacted by fear, anxiety and panic about coronavirus (COVID-19). Following on from the bushfire disasters over summer, the community has been in a heightened state of anxiety and struggling to manage the uncertainty surrounding the possible spread and impact of COVID-19.’

Achievements in a time of adversity

Recent achievements we’re proud of include transferring of superannuation members to better arrangements, safeguarding the interests of friendly society policyholders at a time of historically low interest rates and ensuring the integrity of unit pricing processes so member value and distributions are accurate.
