Day 696

I got an email yesterday from the Big Ideas blokes at Virgin.

Remember how I decided I was going to write Mr Branson a business proposal?  I was very vague about it ... I didn't tell you much ... other than I had a Big Idea and felt it was perfect for Virgin Airlines and I really wanted Richard to have a look at it. Anyway's it's kinda hard to get to Mr Branson himself so I sent it through the Australian Big Ideas point of contact.  And I got an email back from them yesterday ...

Thank you for your proposal and apologies for the delay in getting back to you ... blah, blah, blah ... having to pick those with the greatest possible alignment with our overall strategic goals .... blah blah blah ... unable to take your proposition any further ... will keep your proposal on file for future reference ... all the very best and thank you for thinking of Virgin ... Kind Regards....


It was a very nice email.  Positive in its negativity. Very well written in fact.  Now the thing is, many people would see that as a NO.  But I'm a bit pesky and I think I might keep moving forward with it in any case.  Every no is one step closer to a yes ....


Does anyone know how to contact Mr Branson directly?

  2. Care of Necker Island? Think he may be there a bit to rebuild...
