Dreamforce 2012 here I come!

Richard Branson

Richard Branson

Well I’ve now booked my flight to San Francisco for Dreamforce 2012! Which is going to be the biggest cloud computing conferences of all time! Also one of the greatest British businessmen will also be at the event, Richard Branson. From humble beginnings writing a student newspaper at Stowe School he went on to lead over  200 companies in over 30 countries! The Virgin Group has now expanded into leisure, travel, tourism, mobile, broadband, TV, radio, music festivals, finance and health and through Virgin Green Fund they are investing in renewable energy and resource efficiency.

It’s brilliant that Richard Branson is appearing at Dreamforce, one of his key ideals for all his companies is brilliant customer service and to do things differently. Do things that his competitors wouldn’t even dream of doing, pushing the envelope. My local gym was taken over by Virgin recently and you could tell almost immediately that the Staff had been trained up by Virgin. Even before it had been re-branded Virgin, staff were more helpful and driven to give a better service for their customers. It was really interesting to watch the transformation.

So my Virgin Atlantic flight is booked, and I’m going to share my experience on v-flyer.com which was setup for people to share their experiences flying Virgin. If your interesting in learning more about Richard, he’s written a couple of really interesting books about his life. How he managed to end up in a prison cell all the way to fighting British Airways in the courts, fascinating reads!

Just hope I get a chance to meet him at Dreamforce!
