Our speakers focus on practical teaching techniques that participants can apply to many different age groups. We also hold a winter Christmas turkey dinner every year.

Upcoming Events

Ben Shearon (Tohoku University)
Saturday, 24 October 2015 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Many teachers in Japan would like to get their finances in order, but aren’t quite sure where to start. This exposes them to three big potential dangers: not doing anything, doing the wrong thing, and being taken advantage of by ‘advisors’ or financial institutions. This workshop will cover basic
aspects of personal finance and investing, as well as specific investing and retirement options for residents of Japan. A reading list of websites and recommended books will also be provided. Come with questions, and leave with information and a roadmap of where to find answers. Putting your financial affairs in order is like planting a tree: the best time to do it was twenty years ago. The second best time is now.
