Need An Events Manager - Help!

I have been getting a lot of emails from university students and fresh graduates on how to get into Financial Markets. I think there is a big audience (students and parents). While I am willing to organise a talk (not free one la), I am having problems with the logistics. I need an events organiser (or entrepreneur) to help me with this.

What I require from the organiser:
- to book the venue
- to market the event to colleges
- to have sales points (or internet booking facility) for ticket sales
- can go on revenue share

The gist of the talk:

Planning A Career In Financial Markets

Do you aim to be:
- a Fund Manager
- an Equity Analyst
- a Forex Trader
- a Private Equity player
- an Investment Banker
- a Corporate Finance executive
- an equity Dealer
- a Bond Trader
- a Hedge Fund analyst

The talk is by S Dali of Investing Scents weekly business column in The Star. He is an ex fund manager and head of research, for local and foreign investment houses, having worked in Sydney, HK, Tokyo, Singapore and KL.

Topics covered:
- the right degrees for the right careers
- ranked universities vs local universities vs second tier foreign universities
- specific subjects and majors
- is CFA the passport to success
- are you suited for the financial markets or do you just want to get rich quick
- getting through the front door, reworking your resume
- indirect passages to sound financial markets' careers
- what if your degree consisted of poor grades
- critical success factors to have for viable financial markets career
- remuneration scale for financial markets
- command of English, essential or unnecessary
- things financial markets employers look for
- is financial markets for you
- things they don't teach at business classes

Serious parties only, please email me at

lol Dali.

I think i sent you one of such email back in Aug/Sept 08.

You seriously considering doing a seminar?

It would help for the girls to be hot. No kidding. Some FHM girls were employed to be "oil traders" when times were good. It's all about relationships isn't it?

Hi Dali,

why don't you write a book on the tropics listed, may be in the form of paid access information.

This will benefit outstanding participants like me who might not be able to attend the course in KL.

Great. I am looking forward to attend your talk. Besides the market knowledge, its a golden to see you in person.

I am sensing that you are going into "grooming" mode while earning some pocket money. Good for the society as a whole.

Previously, you mentioned a re-entry into US fund management. Could I say that you are looking for more challenges or there are lack of challenges here? I am crossing the line now.
