Kenan-Flagler Business School, at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. 1995

Legendary investor Warren Buffett imparts investing advice that is both shrewd and homespun in this session filmed in late 1994 before an audience of business students at the University of North Carolina. Seated casually on the edge of a desk, the “Oracle of Omaha” opens the session by recounting how he became involved with the investment firm of Solomon Brothers after a financial scandal at the end of the 1980s and had to suddenly pick someone to run the company. Detailing how he sizes up executives, Buffett engages the students in a mental game about identifying potentially successful people, and winds up urging them to cultivate the desirable qualities in themselves. To get the students more involved, Buffett quickly moves to a question-and-answer session, inviting the students to ask “nasty questions” to keep things interesting.
