We have prepared several talks on topics close to our hearts. These include the subjects listed below (each of which is a self contained talk that also illustrates some key points about intelligent investing):

  • Deconstructing Warren Buffett
  • Relativity, Quantum Theory, and Intelligent Investing

Unfortunately, no transcript or recording of the above talks is available yet. However, you can email or call us about your interest in either of the above talks. Doubly so if you are part of a group that has an interest in arranging for us to speak on one of the above (or indeed another) topic(s) related to intelligent investing.
