Sir Richard Branson to headline Globalization Partners’ 2021 PANGEO Global Employment Conference

Globalization Partners (@GlobalPeo) today (29th Sept) announced Sir @RichardBranson will headline its PANGEO Conference taking place October 20-22, 2021. 

PANGEO is Globalization Partners’ annual conference created to equip companies with new ideas, skills, and best practices to thrive in the rapidly evolving landscape of global remote work. It will bring together visionaries from around the world, who will discuss key trends, strategies, and personal experiences designed to help organisations build fast and agile remote teams.  

Sir Richard Branson is the legendary founder of Virgin Group and one of the world’s foremost visionary philanthropists. Branson founded his first business, Virgin Records, as a mail order record retailer and quickly grew it to become a household name. Today, the Virgin Group consists of more than 40 companies in over 35 countries and is focused upon changing business for good.

Having defied human limits in his many record-breaking adventures, including his recent history-making flight into space with Virgin Galactic, Branson gives much of his time to his charitable foundation, Virgin Unite. The foundation brings together people and entrepreneurial ideas to create opportunities for a better world, incubating such organisations as The Elders, The B Team, and Ocean Unite. Branson regularly interacts with his more than 41 million followers on social media, offering insights into issues ranging from entrepreneurship to the environment and space exploration.

At Pangeo, Branson will underline why companies should adopt a global mindset to be successful in a post-pandemic world, among other subjects, in conversation with Globalization Partners’ Founder and CEO Nicole Sahin.

“There is no more authoritative voice on entrepreneurship and social and environmental responsibility than Richard. He revolutionised the way we work and think about business and the impact it has on the wider world,” said Nicole Sahin, CEO and Founder, Globalization Partners.

“We have just come through events that have upended our understanding of work. I know Richard will offer our audience invaluable insights for navigating the road ahead.”
