Richard Branson Retrospectacle

Seeing the image on the screen with Pam Anderson:

“It’s a tough job, isn’t it. The lawyers say we mustn’t do things like that.”

 

“I owe Goldie Hawn an apology. When she told me she was engaged, I put her wedding ring on, and we couldn’t get it off. I had to get it cut off.”

 

Virgin Group: $25B and 55K employees.

 

“I’m dyslexic and would have failed an IQ test. In business, I don’t know the difference between net and gross. It makes the board meetings interesting.”

Q: The $25B is gross, right?

“Well, I hope it’s net.”

 

Q: Virgin Brides. What went wrong?

“We could not find any customers.”

 

Q: Can you use your knighthood for anything?

“Well, it helps in getting a booking at a restaurant.”

 

“Growing up, I was never allowed to watch TV.”
