I caught up with Sir Richard Branson, as he was releasing his latest book, The Virgin Way: Everything I Know About Leadership. Branson is an international entrepreneur, adventurer, icon and the founder of the Virgin Group. The Virgin Group is one of the world’s most recognized and respected brands, with over 400 companies. His previous best-selling books include Like a Virgin: Secrets They Won’t Teach You at Business School, Losing My Virginity, Screw It, Let’s Do It, Business Stripped Bare, Reach for the Skies and Screw Business As Usual.
According to the Forbes 2012 list of billionaires, Branson is the sixth richest citizen of the United Kingdom, with an estimated net worth of US$4.6 billion. Today, Branson’s Pioneering Commercial Spaceflight Virgin Galactic announced a global partnership with Grey Goose Vodka.
