“Thank you all for an extremely enjoyable seminar. It provided me with a bank of new-found information and more importantly a path to further information and knowledge. I’m looking forward to exploring the website as my next step”.

“A really super day and I wish I’d done it years ago. I’m sure I’m not the first, and won’t be the last, to say so. The day was very well structured and paced. The content was fascinating (I can’t believe I’m hearing myself say this about numbers) and it was surprisingly digestible given the amount and range covered. There was a real clarity and elegance to the whole experience, as though it’s been honed and refined over the years.”
Fiona D., London (December, 2018)

“If you do one thing as an investor this year – and that even includes anyone contributing to a company pension scheme – you should learn more by taking GillenMarkets’ one-day, intensive seminar. Not only will you finally learn how to properly value every share or asset before you buy it, and discover different, risk averse strategies, but you should also come away with a better understanding of the buy, sell and hold signals that the markets produce. This is a serious day’s work for anyone fed up with roller-coaster investing.”
Jill KerbyThe Sunday Times (November, 2009)

Many thanks for the highly valuable and enjoyable seminar on Saturday. Your presentation was stunning and for me I had some Wow experiences. I know only too well that the short period after such intensive learning as Saturday is the time to implement change. You rightly pushed this point towards the end of the seminar.

“I saw the seminar as an introduction to the stock market and how to determine the investment choices that are most likely to suit one’s stage in life. I certainly left the day feeling that it was money well spent and that I had learned something of value”
Kerry Clear, Solicitor

“GillenMarkets’s 1-day investment seminar is the most intelligent and informative investment vehicle I have come across. It minimises risk and maximises returns. A must in the current climate of information overload”
John Kavanagh, Insurance Broker, McMahon Insurances, Dublin (October, 2005)

“Better results will be achieved with training. Chartered Accountant, Rory Gillen, runs an excellent training facility through GillenMarkets, which equips investors with the practical tools for investing and keeps them updated on market data.”
Eddie Hobbs, Investment Advisor (March, 2007)

“I completed GillenMarkets 1-day seminar about a year and a half ago. I consider it to be one of the best investments I have made for myself. I knew absolutely nothing about the stock market and thought I needed a Masters in Economics to understand all the financial terms and before even buying my first share. How wrong I was. The course was enjoyable, straightforward and informative. For me, it banished a lot of the mystery of buying shares. I also availed of the mentoring service (for a small fee) because of particular questions I wanted answered and the website and newsletters have further expanded my knowledge since then.”
Moira Philbin, Civil Servant

“I took the GillenMarkets course in Galway at the end of 2007. But I knew very little about picking stocks, what to look for, how to invest without paying large fees to brokers or how to set up an online stock broking account. This course was recommended by Jill Kerby (Sunday Times, Editor Personl Finance) and so I looked it up, liked what I saw, went to their Free Workshop and signed up for the full-day course. I learned a huge amount on the day and availed of the mentoring service afterwards, which dealt with some lingering questions I had. I highly recommend it.
