#2 - Live Workshops / Events

These usually involve speakers who are practitioners themselves. And best of all, we (try our best to) discourage any sales.

Look out for the next workshop here: Upcoming BIGScribe Workshop

Thus far, we have organised about 6 workshops.

Each workshop focuses to breakdown specific financial questions that you might be facing, such as;

REITs Investing

We invited a professional fund manager and a profitable practitioner to share about REITs investing, and how they approach it. 

The debate was interesting with both sides sharing tidbits about a wide range of tools to maximise their REITs portfolio.

Stress-Free Investing
