He might be the richest man in the world, but Warren Buffett is not above taking the time to share is knowledge and expertise with budding business professionals.
During a videoconference yesterday, University of Missouri business students had the chance to pick the brain of the billionaire investor and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. as a part of a daylong educational forum hosted by MU’s Trulaske College of Business.
"Develop your own talents," Buffett said via satellite from a television station in his hometown of Omaha, Neb. He added that oral and written communication skills are the most important tools a person can have coming out of college.
"If you have those abilities when you’re young, you jump out," the 77-year-old business giant said.
