The Berkshire Hathaway Weekend App is Back

Thursday, May 4th, 2017

In addition to managing this handy dandy blog, our crew at Borsheims also runs a shareholder info desk at Borsheims throughout Berkshire Hathaway shareholders weekend. We can’t answer every question, but we’re pretty good at trying!

And one of the things we get asked most is if we have any extra shareholder guides for the weekend. We do, but we tend to run out quickly. We do have it handily linked at the side of the blog, but sometimes that’s not the easiest to search through.

One Berkshire Hathaway shareholder has helped us all out by turning the shareholder guide into an app the past several years. It’s an easy way to have all the weekend’s info at your fingertips.

To find it, search for Berkshire Hathaway meeting in the App Store. And by the way – it’s free.

And if you know Brent Truell – thank him for us! It’s nice to have an app to direct shareholders to use during the hectic but very fun weekend.

There’s an App for This, BRKers!

Our friend Brent Truell has updated his Berkshire Hathaway shareholder weekend app for this year’s meeting! It’s always so handy to be able to carry around an app that has all the weekend’s official information at the touch of your fingers.

It’s called the BRK Annual Meeting Guide – search for it under Berkshire Hathaway in the app store.

During my time on the shareholder information desk outside Borsheims, I reference it all day long! We quickly run out of the hard copies of the visitor’s guides – and many people don’t want to carry a visitor’s guide around all weekend anyway.

And bonus! Brent made a fun Berkshire Hathaway game, too

Here’s a screen grab of the 2015 BRK Annual Meeting Guide from the App Store.

My weekend just got easier!

I just downloaded the app for Berkshire Hathaway shareholders weekend. I had it last year and it came in handy so many times. It has the complete event schedule for the weekend, a digital version of the visitor’s guide, maps around the CenturyLink Center, and info on taxis and restaurants for the weekend.

Beyond info for the weekend, it has a very handy section about Berkshire Hathaway – including a listing of all the companies with a brief synopsis of what they do and who is in charge.

I cannot imagine how time consuming it was to put together. Brent Truell, the developer, says at first he did this primarily for himself since he wanted to have all that information at his fingertips throughout the weekend. And then he decided to share it with all of us!

Right now, it’s available for the iPhone and iPad. I suggest you download it now and check it out. It will be immensely helpful throughout the weekend and beyond!

New App Has Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders Guide

Thursday, May 1st, 2014

I haven’t downloaded it myself, since I am usually surrounded by at least a dozen Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders Weekend guides, but there is a new app Berkshire Hathaway shareholders might want to check out.

It’s called the 2014 Berkshire Hathaway Shareholder Guide (in the app store). We found out about it on brkinsider.com, and they said they only produced one for Apple products this year.

According to the website, here’s what you can find on the app:

All Meeting information in one, digital place

  • Meeting and event schedule
  • Digital copy of the Meeting Guide
  • Call a Cab (in one tap) – no need to remember numbers.  The pain of waiting for cabs is outlined here.
  • Profiles of Subsidiaries – price paid, dates purchased, and profiles of several companies.
  • Profiles of Managers – Currently a small list, but this will grow throughout the weekend
  • Links to the Letters to Shareholders from 1977 -2013
It looks pretty cool. I am a big fan of the call a cab button and the profiles of the managers (we would point the brkinsider.com folks to this story to complete their Karen Goracke profile).

 

Again, I cannot tell you personally how it works, but for $1.99 I think it will be a worthwhile option for many of our shareholders.
