Join synerG for a Lunch & Learn with Michael Parker, founder of Greensboro Financial Advocates, as he discusses the evolving challenges of personal finance. The world has changed and everyday people face obstacles, and opportunities, that their parents did not. In an examples-based presentation, Michael will provide new ideas on a broad range of topics that people commonly struggle with — from debt management and education funding… to the economics of Solar power… to strategies for reducing bills… to finding a savings account where you earn interest rather than paying fees.

AFTERWARDS, HE TAUGHT MATH AT THE HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL FOR TWO YEARS IN RALEIGH, THEN STUDIED WRITING AT THE GRADUATE LEVEL AT MIAMI UNIVERSITY THROUGH 1996.
