Videos from Thought Leaders:
Buffett is one of the most successful investors of all time. His investment fund Berkshire Hathaway owns more than 60 companies, including Geico, Duracell and Dairy Queen. The son of a US congressman, he first bought stock at age 11 and first filed taxes at age 13. He has committed to giving more than 99% of his fortune to charity. So far he has given $28.5 billion.
Warren Buffett said “When I see memos from Howard Marks in my mail, they’re the first thing I open and read.” Howard is the Co-Chairman of Oaktree Capital Management. He is known in the investment community for his “Oaktree memos” to clients which detail investment strategies and insight into the economy. He treats investing as equal parts psychology and finance, and his book The Most Important Thing provides “uncommon sense for the thoughtful investor.”

A TED Talk Explaining Blockchain:
Oakham Note: Blockchain is the technology behind cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. The blockchain technology is genuinely valuable and will lead to significant changes in the way the world operates. However, the speculative bubble in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies is simply an indicator of the hype surrounding the new technology and its applications. The truth is that no one knows the inherent value of Bitcoin or whether it will be valuable in the future.
Bettina Warburg describes how the blockchain will eliminate the need for centralized institutions like banks or governments to facilitate trade, evolving age-old models of commerce and finance into something far more interesting: a distributed, transparent, autonomous system for exchanging value.
