Stock Smarts Workshops: How to Invest in Stock Market

My first assignment as an Event Director of Manila Workshops was the Stock Smarts Series, in partnership with Marvin Germo. It started in January of this year and we already had four runs as of this month.

We had 4 modules during the first run, which include:

  • Basics of Stock Market
  • Intro to Technical Analysis
  • Advanced Technical Analysis
  • Fundamental Analysis

It was held at the Berjaya Hotel in Makati City, where we had a total of 41 participants for this series.

The same topics were tackled during the second run at Voffice, Fort Legend Tower, in Taguig City with a total of 25 attendees.

We tried a new set of modules for our third run this year and we called it the Comprehensive Technical Analysis Series, which include the following modules:

  • Basics and the Foundations of Technical Analysis
  • Market Trends, Volume Related Trading, Market Phases, and Moving Averages
  • Stock Market Trading Oscillators
  • Candlesticks, Comprehensive Chart Patterns, Fibonacci Analysis

It was held at the Freelancer Conference Hall, Ecotower, in Taguig City, where we had a total of 25 attendees. Majority enrolled for the entire course / series.

On our fourth run, we included two modules from the first run, Basics and Fundamental Analysis, and we added a new module, which is Portfolio Management. Surprisingly, this is the run where we had the most number of attendees, having a total of 45.

Our speaker, Marvin Germo, is a Registered Financial Planner and an author. His ability to simplify complicated investment concepts, making it easier to understand has made him one of the most sought after money speakers here and abroad. With his over seven years of experience in the Philippine financial industry, his energy and zeal to educate the Filipino people has transformed ordinary consumers into investors.

As an advocate of Financial Literacy, I’m happy and proud to be part of this project, where I get the chance to share to others the opportunity to learn more about financial education. Our economy and our country as a whole, has so much to offer, and we hope that through these workshops, we’d be able to help and encourage our kababayans to take part in its progress.

This October, we’re going to have our fifth run of Stock Smarts and it will be a rerun of the Comprehensive Technical Analysis series with the same modules.

Whether you’re a complete newbie in the stock market or you’re already investing or trading, I personally invite you to this upcoming Stock Smarts series. Technical Analysis is one of the best tools to find the perfect timing in buying and selling stocks. Having the knowledge of Technical Analysis will help you trade or invest in the stock market with confidence.

Plus, in these workshops, participants will be given a chance to analyze stocks using the different techniques that Marvin will teach.

My Experience working with Marvin Germo and attending his Stock Smarts Workshop Series

My first project with Manila Workshops as an Event Director was a success and I’m proud of it! 🙂

I’ve never seen Marvin Germo before, but I have been hearing a lot of good things about him, especially when it comes to stock market investing. When I learned from Ginger, the General Manager of Manila Workshops, that I’ll be working with Marvin for his Stock Smarts Workshop Series, my heart jumped in excitement because I will finally see him in person. I only knew him as the “Stock Smart”, but I later found out that he’s also a rock star! 🙂

After coordinating with him for a couple of days through texts, calls, and emails, I finally got to see him personally on the first session of the workshop series. He came into the venue/room wearing sunglasses and when he took it off, I was starstruck! I just saw one of my idols in finance! Haha! 🙂

Because I was at the event, I also got the chance to listen to Marvin as he was discussing the different topics of the Stock Smarts Workshop Series.  And I could say that he is indeed a Stock Smart. He knows his craft very well and he’s able to deliver it to the audience without boring them. I’ve attended a lot of seminars before, but this was the most intensive and comprehensive stock market workshop that I’ve experienced so far. His approach is very light and cool. I’m not saying this because we work together, but because that’s what I experienced. In fact, I’ve been investing in the stock market for almost a year now and I’ve only discovered some of the very useful techniques and strategies in the stock market from his workshops. Now I understand why most of the attendees didn’t mind paying a ‘lot of money’ to attend the workshops because they got what they paid for and it’s totally worth it.

We got the chance to talk after he finished the two workshops on the first day. He was very friendly and accommodating. He shared a little bit about himself and what he does and I’m impressed with his passion, hard work, and dedication to help Filipinos achieve financial freedom by investing in the stock market.

And it was so nice of him to give me a copy of his new book plus a dedication when I half-jokingly asked for it. And of course, knowing myself, I won’t let the day pass without having a photo taken with him. 🙂

The Stock Smarts Workshop Series is composed of four modules, namely, Stock Smarts Basics, How to Find the Perfect Timing in Buying and Selling Stocks, Technical Analysis, and Fundamental Analysis. It’s a full course (but you can attend any module), that’s intended to teach the ins and outs of the stock market from the basic essentials to the most complex topics like technical analysis using chart patterns and oscillators and other tools. And Marvin’s role here is to simplify everything to make it easier for the investors to know how the stock market works without bombarding them with a lot of information.

Below are some of our pictures during the workshops.
