“When money realizes that it is in good hands, it wants to stay and multiply in those hands.” – Idowu Koyenikan, internationally acclaimed organizational consultant and author. Money and finance are extremely important in today’s day and age. We have a drive to earn, save, and spend, but we cannot do these things if we are not wise. Learning the whys and hows of finance and economics can be as simple or as challenging as can be; however, it does not mean it is entirely impossible to understand. Diving into the world of finance may seem like the biggest leap in life, so why not take that first step?
Everything about finance cannot be learned all at once. Nevertheless, mentors serve as guidance and exist for that exact reason. These people have been in the industry for a notable period of time, so imagine how much knowledge they have, as well as what tips and tricks they have up their sleeves. Aligned with the great words of Bob Proctor, “a mentor is someone who sees more talent and ability within you than you see in yourself and helps bring it out of you.” They have a myriad of ideas and wisdom to pass on to society, especially the youth, in order to guide them to achieve their financial goals, while also teaching them how to be financially competitive. However, not everyone has opportunities to meet these eclectic individuals or know where to find them. So, what now?
With everything that has been said thus far, this is the whole reason why the Management of Financial Institutions Association (MaFIA), an accredited professional student organization of DLSU, will be hosting the Global Finance Convention 2023 (GFC 2023), with the theme: ‘Coding Limitless Possibilities’. The last onsite GFC was back in 2018, and now it’s back and will be better than ever! This time around, the event aims to provide the youth with a comprehensive overview of finance and its economic impact, with the intention of empowering them to be financially competitive. Alongside this, the convention focuses on increasing the knowledge of youths on topics such as business, financial goals, financial literacy, wide-known market trends, and many more. Ticket fees for Internal Media Partners cost ₱205, while for Internal Partners it ranges from ₱200 – ₱215 and the event will take place at Natividad Fajardo-Rosario Gonzales Auditorium (Br. Andrew Gonzales Hall, 18th Floor) on March 25th from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. Don’t miss out on this opportunity!
