Marcus Today offers an Intermediate Education Course called Stock Picking for the Active Investor with Marcus Padley - It is a one day course costing $750. Courses run from 9am to 4pm with some networking drinks with Marcus and the other Members afterwards (venue allowing). It includes:

  • An entertaining Educational Day with Marcus ($750).
  • Lunch and refreshments and after event drinks ($110pp).
  • A one year Membership of the Australian Investors Association ($135).
  • This course is AIA approved.
  • A one month subscription to the Marcus Today Newsletter ($75).
  • Time with Marcus (Priceless).
  • Total value over $1,000.

This course is for anyone who is actively, or wants to actively invest in individual shares. I will not teach you Chapter 1 of a technical or fundamental text book that you could read for yourself, or cover predictable content that some much more expensive but ultimately misguided courses will offer you. Instead I will be telling you how it really works, which involves learning a realistic process for assessing shares and making money out of shares, not motherhood technical and fundamental theory, most of which doesn't work. I do believe there is "Dumb Money" and "Smart Money". This will teach you how to become a "Smart" investor.

TESTIMONIALS FROM ONE EVENT on March 17th 2018 in Sydney:

  • Well structured day full of great content, ideas and resources delivered in a very understandable “tell it as it is” manner.
  • It was very Educational and good value for money. It inspired me, besides, we love the man . A true teacher.
  • I subscribe to a number of services related to investments and to the market; to my mind Marcus is unique in that I never feel that he is recommending a stock purchase because he has already bought that particular stock. I value his ethics and recommend his newsletter without reservation. The education course was fun, interesting and most enjoyable and I gained valuable insight.
  • Great course, Marcus really delivers on his stock picking promise! Practical, actionable and also thoroughly enjoyable.
  • This is a most informative and useful training session which correctly places the challenge of direct investing in a healthy retired life. As Marcus says, the challenge is to look after one's money. If you make money that is an added benefit. (Hope I got that right! My attitude anyway!) The tools and resources presented are most useful and readily used.
  • Marcus' "A Day of Stock Picking for the Active Investor" was very beneficial, particularly from the point of view of absorbing and refining relevant data in making decisions.
  • Marcus delivered a really user friendly presentation. It was easy to follow and the stories and personalisation made it all the more interesting. He has certainly made me think about how I’ll be investing in the future. Irene, Sydney
  • While the Marcus Today newsletter is jammed packed with valuable information and ideas, there is nothing like spending a day in the company of Marcus. The course was well structured and covered key topics, with plenty of opportunities for questions and discussions along the way, all presented with good humour and studded with Marcus' entertaining anecdotes. I came away with both new ideas and a deeper understanding of what is involved in successful active investing.
  • In the investment field it takes time to find people who you can trust with advice. I find the Marcus Today newsletter refreshing with advice which calls it as it is and is not afraid to admit when things go wrong.
  • An interesting day well attended giving many good ideas.
  • Marcus Padley's seminar was an entertaining and instructive overview of the investing "game". There was also some down to earth reality checks about the retail investors position on the investing food chain. Marcus gave some very helpful advice as well as list of resources to help refine our investing skills. Happy to recommend unreservedly.
  • The Stock Picking for the Active Investor seminar provided an excellent overview of the process of stock picking, as well as very useful and detailed information that I can follow up upon. As with the Marcus Today newsletters, information blocks were broken up with stories to illustrate the points, which made it easy for me to stay engaged. I also very much appreciated that Marcus addressed participants' questions. A very worthwhile day!
  • Marcus provides a refreshingly honest look at the stock market, examining fundamental and technical analysis, liberally sprinkled with amusing anecdotes.There are no pressure sales tactics - it is about the information. The course is suited to those who already have a basic understanding of shares and charts, looking to increase their level of knowledge to take control of their own investing future.
