FREE Jim Rogers seminar

I know some of you are fans of Jim Rogers, so here's a lobang you can't miss. To those who don't know who he is, here's a quick description of him. He is a astute investor who is quite unlike others. He is a top down kind of investor who bets on big macro trends in the economy, unlike some other gurus who go from bottom up. He had said before that commodities will be the thing to look out for in the near future and even thinks that being a farmer in the future will be the best occupation to be in. He wrote several books like Street Smarts, Hot Commodities and Investment Biker.

InvestGlobal kindly sponsored a ticket to Jim Rogers' seminar, titled "2015 Market Outlook and Strategies". Here's the details of the event:

Venue: Suntec Convention and Exhibition centre, Hall 404 Seminar Room

Date: 11th April

Time: 1230 pm to 230 pm

Price of ticket: $298 (early bird price: $198)

Topic: Jim Rogers will share about the 2015 market and give a glimpse about his portfolio and where he will be putting his money this year. There will also be tips, advice and strategies and what his views are regarding Russia, USD and so on.

The seminar is part of a two day event called InvestGlobal (admission free) on 11th and 12th April which will cover segments from stocks, shares, forex, option, futures, property markets etc. There are 15 exhibitors at the fair, which includes venture capital, broking firms, trading firms, banks, property companies, investment educators, franchise and other business opportunties.

Interested? I won't be going because I have work, just to let you know. If you want this free seminar worth up to $298, just comment below or email me, telling me:

1) Why do you want to go?
2) If you've read his books, which one do you like the best? And why?
3) What do you hope to get out of this seminar?

I'll contact you if you're the winner of the free ticket. After that, you must be willing to give me your full name, NRIC, email address and mobile number so that the organiser can register the ticket under your name. Don't worry, your details are safe with me, and will be purged from my email and system the moment I've passed it to the organiser. If you've a problem with sharing your privacy (I'll understand), then do not participate in this.

If there are no takers, I'll let it lapse. I've no vested interest in this.

Good luck!

(Closing entry: 23rd March, 12 noon)

Hi bro8888,

Good question. I think he means farm owners. Maybe to a certain extent, experienced farmers will fetch a high salary since they have a know how too.

Hi Jo,

U need to fulfill the requirements of the post to get the free ticket ;) email me your reply and I'll let u know if you're the winner next week after the contest is closed :)

Not those farmers in Indonesia or Philippines. My ex-maid is farmer's daughter and farmer's wife. Not sure they can agree with Jim Roger. LOL!

Hi bro8888,

Haha, I know what you mean :) Maybe too early to say if they agree lah, must wait for the mega trend in commodities to come then we'll see if Jim Rogers is correct haha!

I've always wanted to read his books, but somehow never got the chance. Quite hard to borrow from NLB, or maybe I don't have luck! So I don't know enough of what he had said to make a sound argument!

I updated the closing date to 23rd March 12 noon. The organiser needs to know the full details of the ticket holder by 25th March. They told me it's an e-ticket, probably with the details on it.

Cool! Great Lobang you have there!

I think its damn hard to safely predict certain macro trends. Even I have some doubts about his commodities predictions. But then again, what the hell do I know?

I haven't read his book yet though. But I watched some interviews of him and how he makes sure his children learn Chinese. That is based on his macrotrend of China taking over the world.

Hi LP,

Thanks for this info and I am definitely a fan of Jim Rogers. Unfortunately, my traveling schedules are so unpredictable lately, and I worry that I will waste the ticket eventually. I already missed the Personal Finance Seminar.. missed seeing SMOL in handsome person.

Hence I will give a pass on this... I registered online for the free ones though..

Thanks so much for the info anyway.. appreciate it.

Why I am a fan of JR? Not so much of his investment skills, but his personal development advice. Also his exposures gained from traveling around the world so many times. I also think he is a genuine nice person more convince to pass his beliefs than for personal agenda of profits.

For more about Street Smarts and A Gift to My Children books from JR, refer to my links below.

Hi Rolf,

Ah, no worries :) I always wanted to read more about Jim Rogers, but never really had the chance to. I will put my more effort to procure his books and read them ;)
