Sir Richard is one of the world's leading entrepreneurs. He has created a remarkable collection of businesses under one of the most recognised and respected global brands.

The Virgin Group has now created more than 300 companies in 30 countries expanding into air and rail travel, hospitality and leisure, telecommunications, media, health and wellness, space tourism and clean energy.

Sir Richard was knighted in 1999.

Sir Richard's commercial spaceship company Virgin Galactic will soon be carrying tourists into outer space and Virgin Oceanic's submarine will be exploring the depths of our planet's oceans.

Reflecting on his journey from record shop owner to head of the Virgin empire, Sir Richard will discuss his passion for innovation and how he has shaken up some big global industries, ensuring they will never quite be the same again.

He will reveal some of his personal motivations and leadership beliefs. Sir Richard will tell us how he's survived, had fun, made a fortune along the way and why his motto remains "Screw it. Let's do it."
