The fourth "Evening with AK and friends".

Thursday, May 7, 2015

Many readers were disappointed that the last two sessions of "Evening with AK and friends" happened on Monday nights. It was not ideal for many because of work. There were many requests for the next session to be held on a weekend.

So, after a break of almost 2 months, the fourth "Evening with AK and friends" will take place in the evening of 23 May 2015 which is a Saturday!

A weekend? Yes, I hear you.

In the first three sessions, there was an option to get a bundled deal with a book. The book was "Gone Fishing with Buffett" by Sean Seah. It is a very well written book with a local flavour, a perfect primer for any would be value investor. Highly recommended.

This time, I am also going to introduce a book titled "Profit from stock tips!" by Ivan Loh. I was given a copy of the book in the last "Evening with AK and friends" by Ivan and I found the bite size advice given in the book very easy to absorb. There are 100 bites in all! If we believe in learning from others' experience, amongst other things, we might want to read this book and profit from it.

So, because there are two recommended books this time, to make the ticketing process neater and to give more options to readers going for the event, copies of the books instead of being bundled with the tickets will be made available at the venue for separate purchase.

Both Sean and Ivan have agreed to give a special price for readers attending the event.

Special price: $12.00 per book.

This is a very good deal if you know the retail prices of the books in the shops. So, bring extra cash if you want to take advantage of these special deals AK got for you.

It is difficult to get a Saturday. So, 10 more seats will be added for a total of 60 seats for this session. I hope it will be enough. If there are tickets left unsold, I will know that all pent up demand has been filled and this might then be the last session I would have to conduct for the year.

Buy tickets: here.

23 May 2015 (Saturday).
7pm to (latest) 10pm.
10, Anson Road, International Plaza, #36-05A. Singapore 079903.
Topic: Anything with regards to personal finance and investment (but don't expect us to have all the answers).

I certainly hope that this session will be lots of fun like the first three. See you on the 23rd.

Hi AK,

I so wanted to hear you speak and ask all my burning questions. However, like you, I like to remain anonymous... how can we solve this? Hehe.

ang said...

great! sorry, but could you provide some background of these guest speakers? thanks! is there a focal point for this meetup?

AK71 said...

Hi Jes,

You could come in disguise, just not the same one that I have. ;p

AK71 said...

Hi Ang,

These "Evenings with AK and friends" are really social events with a slant towards education as the panel answer questions from the audience. What do you call it? Q&A. No pre-determined topics. ;)

As for backgrounds of the panelists, I will only say that they are all accomplished retail investors in their own ways. All of them have made quite a bit of money in the stock market doing what they do. I believe there are things we could learn from them.

I shall leave them to introduce themselves and share what they feel comfortable about themselves at the event which has always been the practice. :)

ang said...

awesome... looking forward to meeting you guys.

Is there a cut off time to register for this event. As usual, can only confirm later

AK71 said...

Hi Mike,

Sean set the cut off date as the day of the event (i.e. 23 May 2015).

However, I suspect that the tickets will be sold out long before then.

I just checked. There are 7 tickets left.

If you are free to come that evening, let me know if you would like to be a guest panelist. :)

Think I will pass. Just back from overseas. Better keep wife company before I need to go overseas again. Waiting for your 5 th evening

AK71 said...

Hi Mike,

Your wife is very lucky. You are a good husband. Thumbs up! :)

Liang zhi said...

Im late. Will be waiting for your 5th session. *fingers crossed*

AK71 said...

Hi Liang zhi,

I will be taking a break after this session but it is likely that there will be another session.

I will blog about it when the time comes. :)
