What would life be like without Richard Branson? As you can imagine, it’s not something we really like to think about here at Virgin. The same can’t be said for the guys over at Forbes Brasil though, who have created this fascinating infographic (click to enlarge!) on what we’d all be missing out on without the Virgin Group founder about.
The world would undoubtedly be a poorer place; with 416 less bands released, 5.3 million less people travelling by plane and no Galactic Spaceport – at a reported cost of $209 million.
It’s easy at times to forget the positive impact Branson has had on finding a sustainable and better future for the planet, with $3 billion being put into research for environmentally friendly energy and 55 tons of humanitarian aid for the 2005 Pakistan earthquake victims being supplied.
Is there anything you think that’s been missed out? What would you miss most about Richard Branson if he wasn’t around?
