The Orangutan Room

Coined by Warren Buffett’s partner Charlie Munger, the "Orangutan Room" is intended for people who aren’t sure what help they need. Each member briefly describes what they are working on and the group listens closely and responds. The point is this: Just verbalizing your story to a group of smart people is in and of itself helpful (that’s where the Orangutan comes in - we’ll explain).

***Please come prepared with your views on the topic, challenges you're facing, concerns, and 3 good questions to get the conversation started.***

What is a Roundtable?

The roundtables are *optional* and different from the Council meetings. These are informal discussions and generally member-driven. It's a unique opportunity for you to meet members from other Councils and hear/share new perspectives. We'll have one member-host for each discussion, but there are no moderators or CG staff.

You will meet with a group of 10-15 members, all of whom have opted-in to the topic above, for 2 hours of great discussion.
