Come join us in Sonoma (just 1 hour north of San Francisco) for a unique gathering of some of the strongest independent thinkers of our day. Attendees will hear from speakers and participate in conversations about big and important ideas that escape the myopic focus of most market participants.
The conference will cover a variety of themes ranging from the investment markets to economic implications of monetary policy to debt, deficits, and demographics. Attendees can expect to walk away with a greater understanding of these challenges, some likely outcomes of the current trajectory, and some ideas about how to best navigate what lies ahead.
The conference will be held for a half day on Thursday afternoon May 1, a full day Friday May 2. There will be a screening of Money For Nothing: Inside the Federal Reserve, a feature-length documentary that seeks to unveil America’s central bank and its impact on our economy and our society, followed by a Q&A with Director Jim Bruce. There will also be a break-out session with a couple of speakers with one session focusing on building valuation-based investment processes and one session focused on how to make healthy personal financial decisions during periods of extreme change.
Friday night will also feature a special VIP speakers dinner. The dinner will be a chance for some more intimate conversations over world class food and drink in delightful wine country. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet and chat with our very talented group of speakers. Please see Conference Agenda for costs and other details.
Some attendees may choose to make a weekend of it and spend Saturday enjoying a few of Sonoma and Napa county’s favorite activities like golf, wine tasting, hiking or biking. Spouses and other guests are welcome.
We have blocked off a small number of rooms at the Lodge for the weekend. Please see Lodging, Travel & Social Info for details.
