I met Helena this past summer because she was looking to add speakers to her roster for her first online investing summit — the Canadian Investors Conference. I suggested a few of my favourite Canadian experts, and now several months later the conference is just a few weeks away and registration (which is free by the way) is open to the public.
It’s no easy task to start your own conference from scratch, but Helena knew that this was something she had to do. There’s a huge lack of education when it comes to investing, especially for beginners, so Helena wanted to create a free summit to help close that gap.
Right now, there are 24 speakers and the online conference runs from Feb. 4 – 9, 2017.
You can register for free at canadianinvestorsconference.com.
More About Helena
Helena started learning and experimenting with investing after graduating university. She started with mutual funds but then start day trading.
In the end, she realized that index investing was the right strategy for her, but she was surprised that there wasn’t that much information about it online and that most people didn’t know all of their options.
That’s why she started the Canadian Investors Conference. She wanted to create a free, online event accessible to everyone to educate Canadians about all the ins and outs of investing and building their wealth.
