William Green participated in the “Talks at Google” series in 2016, sharing lessons from some of the most successful investors of our time.
William, author of the highly rated book The Great Minds of Investing, spoke about the most important lessons he has learned in two decades of studying, interviewing, and writing about many of the world’s best investors. He discussed how you can become more successful — both as an investor and in other areas of life — by reverse-engineering the greatest investors and figuring out how they stack the odds of success in their favor. The goal: to become richer, wiser, and happier.
William has written for many publications, including Time, The New Yorker, Fortune, Forbes, Barron’s, Money, Worth, Bloomberg Markets, and The Economist. He was the Editor of the European, Middle Eastern, African, and Asian editions of Time. As a co-author, he worked closely with Guy Spier, helping him to write his memoir, The Education of a Value Investor. William has interviewed many remarkable investors, such as Sir John Templeton, Joel Greenblatt, Howard Marks, Bill Ackman, Seth Klarman, Bill Miller, Tom Russo, Marty Whitman, Bill Nygren, Donald Yacktman, Mohnish Pabrai, Jean-Marie Eveillard, Peter Lynch, Bill Ruane, and Michael Price.
