Sir Richard Branson is the keynote speaker together with four other speakers at Hjärntillskott Executive Day during December 3-4 in Sweden. Richard is one of the rare business leaders in the world who is always willing to move on to new and untapped territories. My guess would be that it was for this reason he gave credits to sharks in his blogpost: Sink or swim. It is not often we get a world-class business icon at this level in Sweden. I look forward to learn from Richard’s swimming lessons. There are still some tickets left for fast movers at Bestseller.

About Sir Richard Branson
In 1970 at age 20, Sir Richard Branson founded Virgin as a mail order record retailer and then as a record shop, recording studio and music label. Since then, Virgin has become one of the world’s most recognized and respected brands, expanding into air and rail travel, leisure and hospitality, entertainment, telecommunications, media, health and wellness, space tourism and clean energy through more than 400 branded companies in 30 countries with global branded revenues of $21B.
In December 1999, Sir Richard was awarded a knighthood in the Queen’s Millennium New Year’s honours list for ”services to entrepreneurship.” Sir Richard has been involved in a number of world record-breaking attempts since 1985. In 1986 his boat, Virgin Atlantic Challenger II, crossed the Atlantic Ocean in the fastest ever recorded time. In August 2012 he completed the last, in a long series of attempts, when he set the record as the oldest person to kitesurf the English Channel.
