Presentation in December

I have been asked by a self-taught value investor Rishi Sondhi to give a short presentation/talk on investing.

Where: Chelmsford Public Library, Chlemsford, Massachusetts

When: December 13, 2007 at 7 pm

I've never been to Chelmsford, Massachusetts, but I've been told it's a short drive from Boston.

This is a free event open to the public.

I imagine my time will be about one hour. I am of the impression that one of the most valuable ways to give a talk is if I do very little talking and let the attendees ask questions. That way, they get the most out of their time.

My plan is to spend about 15-20 minutes discussing six attributes/characteristics/qualities that seem to be common threads amongst the most successful money managers - Buffett, Miller, Pabrai.

I will follow with a brief case study of a past investment that provides a good example to the business-like approach to investing.

Then I will answer questions for the remainder of time.

Feel free to stop by if you are in the area at the time!

Warm Regards,
Sham

Perhaps, with the permission of the hosts, you could record your conversation, make an MP3 file and share on your website? Also, you could share your presentation material or hand-outs?

Good luck,
