“To me, business isn’t about wearing suits or pleasing stockholders. It’s about being true to yourself, your ideas and focusing on the essentials.” -Sir Richard Branson

Whether you are interested in music, travel, financial services or mobile telecommunications, The Virgin Group is a brand that is impossible to ignore.

Incredible stuff dude, this is exactly what I needed to know.

There's a handful of other questions I got with this, but I suppose I can not be greedy. One answer at a time.

This design is wicked! You most certainly know

how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and

your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well,

almost...HaHa!) Great job. I really loved what

you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.

Too cool!

Hello Hanna!

Great post on Virgin's use of Social Media. I follow Sir Richard Branson on Google plus. I love his posts. They are all very positive. I also like the way he engages his Google circles by asking questions or holding a contest on various things. He recently created a contest with a very cool prize to name their new Virgin Atlantic jet. He also recently held a contest with a prize by asking followers to guess where he was in the world for New Years Eve. He makes the experience very fun :)
