This presentation is focused on statisticians rather than statistical science. Trevor will provide a personal perspective on the challengers of switching direction during a career as a statistician from working in academia to statistical consulting in the pharmaceutical industry; and then switching from a senior management role in a multinational pharmaceutical company to working as an independent statistical consultant. In parallel to pursuing a career there are opportunities to support your profession by taking on volunteer roles within your professional body. Trevor will talk about his experiences participating in activities with the Royal Statistical Society (RSS) and the direction currently being taken to enhance the RSS as a professional body for statisticians. He will cover recent developments in the Chartered Statistician award, the evolution of the RSS professional pathway to encourage and support careers in statistics and the introduction of the Professional Statisticians’ Forum.

This talk is part of the Cambridge Statistics Discussion Group (CSDG) series.
