Motley Fool financial analyst Matt Koppenheffer sat down for brunch on Sunday with the management team at Markel (NYSE: MKL ) , and in this video, he discusses with Fool financial analyst David Hanson some of his takeaways from the day. Particularly, he focuses on Markel CEO Tom Gayner's statement that they don't like having people at the company who want to be stars. Matt and David discuss the idea of "The Talent Myth," and compare Markel in this sense to the former Enron.
