UPDATE! DATE HAS CHANGED TO MONDAY, MAY 13, 2013! (from May 9)
DECA is reviving our DECA Learns events and our first one is coming up next week:
Investing 101: Where to Start with your Money
Monday, May 13, 2013
Lazy Daisy’s Cafe at 1515 Gerrard Street East (@ Coxwell)
7:30 – 9:00 p.m.
Free! (Donations welcome to cover our costs, but are not necessary)
Cafe menu, beer and wine available for purchase
Come and hear from our special guest, Som Seif, President and CEO of Purpose Investments, who will explain the fundamentals of investing and then answer all of your questions. You will leave feeling confident in your knowledge – you will be ready to walk into a bank or investment advisor and know what you’re talking about. The evening will be relatively informal, leaving lots of time for questions and discussion…and wine.
Som is a Bay Street mover and shaker, but he also has a sincere passion for teaching people about financial literacy. You might have seen Som on RoBTV, or as a guest host on CBC’s Lang & O’Leary Exchange. We have an ‘in’ with Som, which is why we invited him, and we were so thrilled when he kindly agreed (rest assured, this event is not a sales pitch).
Oh look, a poster!
By the way…we chose Lazy Daisy’s Cafe based on its relaxed and comfortable atmosphere, awesome food and drinks, and nice size. Although we wanted to stay in DECA’s territory, Lazy Daisy’s is an honourary DECA favourite given their participation at our East Lynn Farmers’ Market. If this will be your first time there, it will surely not be your last.
