Financial Management Seminar in ADMU

Last February 9, a Financial Management Seminar was given to the employees of the Ateneo de Manila University-Facilities and Management Office (ADMU-FMO). This was included in the holistic program for the employees. Its goal was to give the FMO employees the idea on how they can manage their finances in terms of how they can budget their money, save, and how to properly use debt.

The seminar was held in a fine Saturday morning at the John Gokongwei School of Management Building in Ateneo de Manila University. Mr. Armand Bengco, the speaker of the seminar, shared some practical points on how they can better manage their money and how they can reverse the effects of debt by knowing how to properly use it and when to use debt.

At the end of the seminar, the Colayco Foundation gave Pisobilities: Gabay sa Buhay Pinansyal books.  Also, complimentary Pera Palaguin Workbooks were given to the participants courtesy of the ADMU-FMO. The ADMU-FMO employees are looking forward to applying the things they learned to manage their finances and invest their hard-earned money.
