This webcast runs April 16, 2014. Don’t miss it! Richard Branson might answer your question live. Sign up here.
You probably know Sir Richard Branson as the English business magnate, founder of the Virgin Group. You’ve read about his business ventures, including Virgin Records, Virgin Airlines, and Virgin Galactic–the first space tourism company. Or perhaps you know him for his record-breaking Atlantic crossing, or his trips across the Atlantic and Pacific in a hot-air balloon. Maybe you even follow the tie-loathing thrill seeker on Twitter.
But do you know why Sir Richard named his first company Virgin? Did you know he’s a high-school dropout who is now considered one of the top 10 richest citizens of the U.K.? Did you know that on one of his last days at school, his headmaster, Robert Drayson, told him he would either end up in prison or become a millionaire? Or that he’s known at Virgin as “Dr. Yes”? Did you know he’s an activist who has gone on hunger strike?
AMA is giving you the chance to ask the man who was knighted for his contributions to entrepreneurship a question about his career. Post your business question below in the comments. Sir Richard will pick his favorite 5 questions and answer them in the April 16th Webcast, Becoming a Valued Player: A Toolkit for Personal and Professional Success.
