I went to one of these a few years ago to hear Prem.  (A fine talk as per usual.)  IIRC, I sat beside Brian Bradstreet and generally made a fool of myself.


It was a nice day.  It had a bit too much non-value stuff at the time but it seems that they've corrected that issue this time around.

Lol, I didn't notice immediately that it was the day before the FFH annual meeting.


For those who don't want to spend the $500, you can get a ton of value by dropping by the per-dinner event that's been running for several years now.  Casual drinks in a local establishment and value stock talk for those who arrive a little early.  Actually, I rather suspect that the value-to-price ratio will be rather higher at the pre-dinner event.  :)

Hi Folks,


To be fair, the Ben Graham Centre's conference has a few things our dinner won't.  You get to hear David Winters, Mohnish Pabrai, Jeff Stacey, Wayne Peters, and I believe Sir John's grand-daughter Lauren speak.  As well, you get a far more detailed conversation with Fairfax's investee CEO's.  Cheers!
