Sir Richard Branson

The incredible success of the Virgin Group has been led by the only person on the planet to build eight billion dollar companies in eight different sectors.

In 2004 Richard established the non-profit foundation Virgin Unite to tackle tough social and environmental problems and strives to make business a force for good. Most of his time is now spent working with Virgin Unite and the organisations it has incubated, such as The Elders, Carbon War Room, B Team and Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship. He also serves on the Global Commission on Drug Policy and supports ocean conservation with the OceanElders.
