“In life, you only have 40 chances—about 40 productive years—to make an impact on the world,” says Howard G. Buffett. So … if you had the resources to accomplish something great in the world, in 40 years, what would you do? Legendary investor Warren Buffett posed this challenge to his son Howard in 2006, when the older Buffett announced he was leaving the bulk of his fortune to philanthropy. Howard Buffett set out to help nearly a billion people who lack basic food security—and gave himself 40 years to put more than $3 billion to work on this challenge. Now Buffett, co-author of 40 Chances, shares his journey through 40 stories that introduce lessons he’s learned—and a way of thinking that speaks to every person who wants to make a difference.
Howard G. Buffett, along with his son, Howard W. Buffett will be appearing in conversation with Joe Whinney, founder of Theo Chocolate.
