When it comes to titans of industry, there aren’t many more recognizable than Sir Richard Branson. The philanthropist and founder of Virgin Group began with a mail-order record retailer, Virgin Records, and quickly developed a collection of 40 innovative companies across the world.
Whether it is in the music industry or in space adventures with Virgin Galatic, Branson has seen success and he will give his take on the future work at the PANGEO Conference that is taking place October 20-22, 2021. The business magnate will be giving his unique insight into best practices to succeed in the rapidly evolving landscape of global remote work.
Branson will take part in a virtual Q&A session with Globalization Partners CEO Nicole Sahin, where the two will discuss how a global mindset is a key to success in the post-pandemic world as well as other valuable lessons he has learned over his years in business.
Speaking about his appearance, Nicole Sahin, CEO, and Founder, Globalization Partners, stated: “There is no more authoritative voice on entrepreneurship and social and environmental responsibility than Richard. He revolutionized the way we work and think about business and the impact it has on the wider world.”
Sahin added, “We have just come through events that have upended our understanding of work. I know Richard will offer our audience invaluable insights for navigating the road ahead.”
Sir Richard Branson is scheduled to appear Wednesday, October 20 at 15.30 p.m. BST / 21:30 p.m PST.
The conference will also feature insight from several other visionaries from around the world. The full list can be seen below:
- Nicole Sahin, Founder and CEO Globalization Partners
- Daymond John, Founder of FUBU and star of Shark Tank
