My top 10 quotes on discovering original

Whenever something goes wrong or you find yourself at a disadvantage, the best way to handle it is to turn the negative into a positive by thinking originally.

New Power

Our hyper-connected world can often feel chaotic as we’re always switched on – but when you’re checking your phone, do you realise the power you have in your hands? 

power.jpg Image from Jeremy Heimans

The world has changed a lot in the 50 years I’ve been in business, and power has definitely shifted. Technology has advanced and our behaviour is changing too. It affects us all in many different ways, but I’m very optimistic that the power shift can help create a stronger society for us all. It can amplify movements and help drive positive change. This shift is discussed by Jeremy Heimans and Henry Timms in their book New Power. It’s a useful lens to use when thinking about how business has changed, how to spread ideas or start a movement, or create change.

Innovators are the new rock stars

The world loves innovators. Those who can imagine and reimagine the world as they see it, who can create something out of nothing and do things differently.

hyperlooprichard.jpeg Image from Virgin Hyperloop One

We’re living in an age of innovation, where an original idea executed well will see people become fans of your brand, liking and sharing your updates and most importantly spending their money with you (Elon Musk has more followers than Beyoncé after all!).

p1100100.jpg Image from Virgin Orbit

When we launched Virgin Records, we found success through giving a platform to sub cultures such as punks through The Sex Pistols, or turning our first record shops into a home for people to hang out and listen to music. Today, innovation is a fashionable sub-culture of its own and I’m proud that Virgin is…

The Sun Does Shine

Anthony Ray Hinton is one of the most inspiring people I’ve ever met. It’s because Ray has had to endure an ordeal so gruesome and unimaginable, and he’s not only survived it, he’s come out of it with a profound will, deep passion for forgiveness and kindness, determination to move on and an astonishing and exhilarating sense of humour. This is not what you’d expect of a man who spent 30 years on Alabama’s death row, convicted of a crime that he didn’t commit – the victim of a deeply, and often unapologetically, racist criminal justice system. 

sun-does-shine-header.png Image from Equal Justice Initiative

In 1986, Ray was arrested, charged and sentenced to death for two murders in Birmingham, Alabama. At the time, he was a 29 year-old living with his mom Buhlar, by all accounts a towering presence of love, compassion and warmth in…

Auticon, the unique IT and compliance business whose consultants are all on the autism spectrum, is today marking World Autism Awareness Day. 

auticon_staff_photo.jpg Image from Auticon

Virgin Group invested in Auticon back in October 2016, and since then the organisation has grown by 200 per cent year-on-year. Virgin Money is among their clients, alongside the likes of Network Rail, Experian, GlaxoSmithKline, Channel 4 and Allianz.

From customer services to people director for Natasha Grice at Virgin Trains

One of my favourite things about Virgin is how people are so often able to thrive through different roles, companies and even sectors around the Group. So I was thrilled to see the appointment of Natasha Grice as People Executive Director for Virgin Trains. 

12natasha.jpg Image from Virgin Trains

Natasha has been part of the Virgin family for more than 16 years, starting out as cabin crew for Virgin Atlantic before moving to Virgin Trains to become a customer service assistant. Natasha has also spent time as duty manager, a station manager and an on-board manager over the past few years. It just goes to show how you can turn your hands to many different jobs and be successful if you are driven by passion. If you throw yourself into something, the only limit is the one you place on yourself.

Brazil pledges to protect two huge marine areas

Really exciting news that Brazil’s president has pledged to protect two huge marine areas.

gettyimages-585894152.jpg Image from Getty Images

The stunning Sao Pedro and Sao Paulo archipelago and the Trindade and Martim Vaz islands will be made protected areas, meaning 25 per cent of the country’s oceans will be safeguarded. The more of these areas that are strongly protected, the better! It was great to see business leaders, politicians and environmentalists come together at the Economist’s Ocean Summit, which I joined via video, to talk about how we can look after and improve the world’s oceans. It’s so encouraging to see so many people on the same page. 

Highly protected marine areas are so important – they allow fish stocks to recover and help rebuild damaged reefs, and create sustainable and healthier long-term sources of food and jobs. It’s…

Everyone has something valuable to bring to the table

I have never looked at my dyslexia as a disability; in fact I think it has helped me achieve success.

Just because you are different does not mean you can’t do well and achieve things in life. Looking at the world in a different way to everyone else is a strength and should be praised and encouraged.

The race to save one of the world’s most pristine ecosystems

The world is full of remarkable people whose amazing work often goes unnoticed or doesn’t get the attention it deserves. One of these people is Charlie Dailey, who is a brilliant and accomplished professional photographer. But her commercial success serves a much greater purpose. Charlie has made it her life’s mission to highlight the amazing beauty and biodiversity of our planet and to draw attention to the ways in which humanity is destroying the precious ecosystems all life depends on. Not too long ago, Charlie spent a few weeks in Indonesia, which sadly has become a frontline in the battle to protect biodiversity and tackle the root causes of climate change. Here is part of a letter she sent to me afterwards, accompanied by some of her incredibly touching and beautiful photography:
