You only have to look at the success experienced by the various Virgin companies to realise that Richard Branson has something a little special about him. Throughout his time as an entrepreneur and adventurer the Virgin Founder has had more than his fair share of triumphs, along with one or two notable mishaps.

Here is some quotes by the great Richard Branson.

“Complexity is your enemy. Any fool can make something complicated. It is hard to keep things simple.”

“A company is people … employees want to know… am I being listened to or am I a cog in the wheel? People really need to feel wanted.”

“Most necessary evils are far more necessary than evil.”

“Engage your emotions at work. Your instincts and emotions are there to help you.”

“You can never go too far wrong by thinking like a customer who’s new to the business.”

“You shouldn’t blindly accept a leader’s advice. You’ve got to question leaders on occasion.”
