We consider ourselves to be a family – that goes for our clients as well as our staff and who better to describe this ethos than Sir Richard Branson. So when the chief of Virgin recently agreed to meet with our MD, Jane Snee we were absolutely delighted.
So what do you say to someone that has been such an inspiration to the business world? Well, first things first… we had to say how honoured we were to meet Sir Richard, to which he responded a heart-warming ‘thank you’.
We had so many questions to ask, about Sir Richard starting in business straight through to his new ventures with the elders. However, with limited time it was straight down to business with a much treasured photograph to finish.
His ethos runs to the core of the Virgin group and includes qualities that ensure:
- everything is high quality
- there is innovation in the business
- this provides good value
- this is challenging the norm
- this creates a sense of fun
What struck our MD, Jane is that Sir Richard is genuine, polite and modest about his amazing achievements, instead keen on turning the limelight on to his passion for helping others and putting back into our world.
