Howard G. Buffett, Philanthropist; Co-author, 40 Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry World
Howard W. Buffett, Executive Director, Howard G. Buffett Foundation; Co-author, 40 Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry World
In conversation with Dr. Gloria Duffy, President and CEO, The Commonwealth Club
In 2006, legendary investor Warren Buffett posed a question to his son, Howard G. Buffett: If you had the resources to accomplish something great in this world, what would you do? Because of his passion for farming and philanthropy, Howard G. Buffett set out to help the one billion individuals around the world who lack basic food security, and he has given himself 40 years to put more than $3 billion toward reaching this goal. Howard believes that all of us have 40 chances to accomplish our goals in life, and more specifically, 40 productive years to do the best job we can realizing our passions and striving for greatness. Join us as we sit down with Howard G. and Howard W. Buffett to discuss their endeavors thus far, the book detailing their journey, and how we too can perceptively use our 40 chances to achieve our goals and accomplish “something great in this world.”
