MoneyExpo Coming Soon
This is a just reminder that outspoken blogger and ex-member of parliament Garth Turner will be at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre, 101 Gordon Street, Nanaimo, from 9 am to 6 pm on Sunday, February 1, 2009, for the MoneyExpo. Admission is free if you register online, otherwise it's $15 at the door. Turner is an amusing and informative speaker, especially on real estate issues. Turner's book, Greater Fool: The Troubled Future of Real Estate, predicted the economic crisis and Garth is never one to hold back when voicing his opinions. His latest book, After the Crash: How to Guard Your Money in These Turbulent Times will be released on the same day as his Nanaimo appearance. Unfortunately, I'll be away traveling in Africa on February 1, otherwise I definitely wouldn't miss this event. A caveat: The presenters at the MoneyExpo are there to market a variety of financial services and you should perform due diligence before investing in any of their products. This is not a charitable gathering.
