Here is what Darren Earn, a Chapter Member, has to say:
Since the 1990s, I am a Berkshire Hathaway (BRK) shareholder and I have attended the BRK annual meeting close to 15 times over the years. The 88-year-old Chairman and CEO billionaire Warren Buffet, and 95-year-old co-chairman Charlie Munger are the two people that I admire most on the planet. These men have a down-home folksy country style, are simple to understand, and have a no-nonsense way of communicating with honesty and integrity. If you have never seen or heard these men speak, now is the time because they are not getting any younger and to my knowledge, there is nobody else alive that is willing to share their broad perspective on business and the overall economy and “tell it like it is” to the masses who attend. There is no fake news or confusion in what they say and share. They share genuine facts, history, and wisdom from years of experience in full candor holding back nothing, controversial or not. Warren and Charlie have insight into the economy well before the rest of us because of their ownership of a diverse range of close to 60 wholly owned companies from insurance, railways, energy and consumer staples which gives them perspective much earlier than we could glean from quarterly or annual reports.
I have also had the pleasure on 2 occasions to attend the EO Omaha’s event where each year they put on a world-class event of learning and dining where people from all over the world attend. The last time I met people from China, Mexico, India and more. They hosted us in venues that were unavailable to anyone else just as we have come to expect from an EO organized event. We did breakout sessions similar to our forum groups and got to hear the perspectives from business people from all over the world. My experience with EO Omaha was great and something you don’t want to miss.
