2016 Annual Berkshire Hathaway Shareholder’s Meeting

Written by George Traganidas Topics: Presentations, Stock Investing, Wealth Building

Berkshire Hathaway meeting

Berkshire Hathaway held its 51st shareholder’s meeting in Omaha on Saturday 30th of April. This was the first year that the meeting was also broadcast live through Live Feed Video and it will be available for 30 days after the meeting. This caused a drop in the number of people who attended the meeting this year in Omaha, because they could watch the event from home.

Here follow my notes from the meeting. The notes will not cover all the topics and they are my attempt to summarise their most important points.[…]

2014 Berkshire Hathaway Annual Shareholder meeting notes and more

Written by George Traganidas Topics: Presentations, Stock Investing, Wealth Building

Berkshire Hathaway meeting

On Saturday 3rd of May I joined almost 38,000 other “students” to attend the master class for investors that is the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting. People started queuing at 2:30 am on Saturday in order to get a front seat to listen to Warren Buffett and his partner Charlie Munger. A student was paid $100 to start queuing at 3:00 am for a shareholder who arrived at 7:00 am to take his place in the line. As per usual, Warren Buffett and his long time business partner Charlie Munger sat on stage in Omaha, Nebraska, for over five hours answering questions from reporters, financial analysts, and Berkshire shareholders. Many shareholders had travelled great distances to be part of the weekend.[…]

A Lesson on Elementary, Worldly Wisdom As It Relates To Investment Management & Business

Written by George Traganidas Topics: Presentations, Stock Investing, Wealth Building

Charles Munger
USC Business School
1994

I’m going to play a minor trick on you today – because the subject of my talk is the art of stock picking as a subdivision of the art of worldly wisdom. That enables me to start talking about worldly wisdom – a much broader topic that interests me because I think all too little of it is delivered by modern educational systems, at least in an effective way.

And therefore, the talk is sort of along the lines that some behaviorist psychologists call Grandma’s rule after the wisdom of Grandma when she said that you have to eat the carrots before you get the dessert.[…]

“Breakthrough to success” NLP seminar with Chris Howard

Written by George Traganidas Topics: Habits, NLP, Personal Finance, Presentations, Seminars

Breakthrough to success with Chris Howard

In June, I went to the Breakthrough to Success seminar by Christopher Howard. It was such an awesome event. Chris rocks. He has studied NLP and hypnosis for years and it shows every minute he is on stage. I have studied NLP as well, but I have never seen anyone put it to practice so well. Every move and every word he says are calculated and full of meaning.

In the seminar he covers the areas of wealth, personal growth, career, relationships and family. The best thing is that he shows you the skills to use to achieve what you want in the areas and you practice them with him. So, you gain a lot of insight on the practical application of these tools.

Steve Jobs speech at Stanford

Written by George Traganidas Topics: Presentations

On 12 June 2005, Steve Jobs gave a speech to the graduates of Stanford University. In his speech he narrated three stories from his life to the students and the meaning that each one of them has and how they shaped his life.

His first story is about connecting the dots. Sometimes events in your life look insignificant at present and only in the future you will realise how important they really are. His second story is about love and loss. In this one Steve explains how he left Apple and how through this loss he became stronger and came back. His last story is about death. People need to enjoy life and not let it pass by them. You need to challenge yourself all the time if you compromise or you live the life you dream. […]
