MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — These two Silicon Valley companies make investors swoon, but their top executives could learn a few lessons from Warren Buffett on how to put on a shareholder meeting that wows and engages their fans.

Telsa’s TSLA, +2.88% June 6 shareholder meeting and the Alphabet GOOG, +0.24%GOOGL, +0.27% version the next day each attracted fewer than 400 people. Tesla’s gathering at the Computer History Museum was over in 60 minutes. Alphabet’s, held in a Googleplex auditorium, finished in 95 minutes.

By contrast, the Berkshire Hathaway BRK.A, +0.27%BRK.B, +0.26% gathering on May 6, dubbed “Woodstock for capitalists,” drew 35,000 to Omaha and was an all-day affair in the city’s main sports arena.
