  • Screw It, Let’s Do It: 14 Lessons on Making It to the Top While Having Fun & Staying Green

    “Throughout my life I have achieved many remarkable things. In Screw It, Let's Do It, I will share with you my ideas and the secrets of my success, but not simply because I hope they'll help you achieve your individual goals. Today we are increasingly aware of the effects of our actions on the environment, and I strongly believe that we each have a responsibility, as individuals and organizations, to do no harm. I will draw on Gaia Capitalism to explain why we need to take stock of how we may be damaging the environment, and why it is up to big companies like Virgin to lead the way in a more holistic approach to business.” – Sir Richard Branson In his book, Screw It, Let's Do It Branson looks to the future. In this chat, Richard will explain how he is taking his business, and his inspirations, to the next level in some of the newest and most crucial areas, such as launching Virgin Fuels. Yet even when entering markets as influential and impactful to our future as fuel, Branson always reminds us to “have fun with it” in keeping with his contemporary and cavalier attitude. One of his favorite quotes embodies this spirit perfectly: “The brave may not live forever – but the cautious do not live at all!”

  • Losing My Virginity: How I’ve Survived, Had Fun & Made a Fortune Doing Business My Way

    Branson’s book, Losing My Virginity is an outrageous opus of one of the most audacious and genius business minds of our time. Since naming his business after the amount of business experience he started out with – Virgin, Branson has re-written the rulebook for success – creating a group of companies with a global presence, but no central headquarters or management hierarchy, and minimal bureaucracy. In this fireside chat, Branson describes how and why many of his companies were started in the face of entrenched competition. He realized that being too big can actually be the reason you fail. Branson capitalized on the advantage of being flexible and free to improve on existing big businesses even when the “experts” said, "Don't do it." However, in typical Branson style, he found golden opportunities in markets in which customers have been slighted or underserved, where confusion reigns, and the competition is complacent. Today, Richard Branson represents the new model of the businessman – one who is free-thinking, daring, hardworking, and who lives life to the fullest. Losing My Virginity is a portrait of a successful, balanced life, dappled with rich and colorful stories including:
    • Crash-landing his hot-air balloon in the Algerian desert, yet remaining determined to have another go at being the first to circle the globe
    • Signing the Sex Pistols, Janet Jackson, the Rolling Stones, Boy George, and Phil Collins
    • Fighting back when British Airways took on Virgin Atlantic, and successfully suing this pillar of the British business establishment
    • Swimming two miles to safety during a violent storm off the coast of Mexico
    • Selling Virgin Records to save Virgin Atlantic
    • Staging a rescue flight into Baghdad before the start of the Gulf War In this fascinating exchange, you will hear the ultimate tale of personal and business conquest from a man who combines the business acumen of John D. Rockefeller, with the promotional prowess of P. T. Barnum.

  • A Fireside Chat: Screw Business as Usual – How to Have Fun, Do Good & Make Money

    In this personal, approachable and moderated fireside chat-like forum, Branson imparts the life lessons he learned and chronicled in his book, Screw Business as Usual. “Over the last few decades as I’ve started up one exciting business after another, I thought that life and work could not get any better. In preparing this presentation, I’ve realized that we’ve really been on a practice run, getting ready for the greatest challenge and opportunity of our lifetime. We’ve got a shot at really pulling together to turn upside down the way we approach the challenges we are facing in the world and look at them in a brand new entrepreneurial way. Never has there been a more exciting time for all of us to explore this great next frontier where the boundaries between work and purpose are merging into one, where doing well, really is good for business.” Richard Branson In Screw Business as Usual, Branson reveals his innovative and inclusive vision for the future. He aims to redefine capitalism, and flip it on its head– to evolve our values and switch from a just profit focus, to the focus of the future which will be on people, communities and the planet, and as one of the most successful businessmen in history, corporations will just have to trust that it is in their best interest to include the interests of their customers and communities. It is no longer considered counterintuitive in business to be compassionate.
