This year, I made my third trip to Omaha for the annual Berkshire Hathaway shareholder’s meeting. Warren Buffet are Charlie Munger took center stage and shared their wisdom on investing, business management, and the economy to a packed house that included billionaire Bill Gates and rock superstar Bono.
The weekend of April 30, 2011 was an exciting one! I spent the weekend in Omaha, Nebraska at the Berkshire Hathaway Annual Shareholder meeting with Warren Buffett himself! Here are some of my favorite and biggest takeaways from the event.
To top off Berkshire Hathaway week at Narrow Bridge, I want to talk about the inspiration and enthusiasm from participating in the “Woodstock for Capitalists” in Omaha. Now that we have discussed dividends, leadership, and environmental policies, it is time to focus on something a bit more fun.
So far, we have discussed Berkshire’s dividend policy and future leadership. Today, we are going to focus on a particular shareholder proposal that led to the most contentious moments of the day.
Yesterday we talked about Berkshire Hathaway’s dividend policy, which is a forward looking discussion of Berkshire’s ability to generate a strong return. None of that will be possible, however, unless Berkshire Hathaway has strong leaders.
This year, I made my second annual pilgrimage to Omaha to see Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger discuss the future of Berkshire Hathaway. This week is Berkshire Hathaway Week at Narrow Bridge Finance.
