I was recently invited to a ‘secret’ event that was being hosted by Richard Branson at the Senate Building near Russell Square. I had a sneaking suspicion that it was linked to his new banking venture with Northern Rock, but beyond that I really didn’t know what to expect. However, as Branson is known for being a bit wacky and intrepid with his adventures, and there was beer on offer I thought I’d make the trip into London to see what it was all about.
Even with this limited information, I managed to persuade Helen from Actually Mummy to join me. We weren’t disappointed with the surprise! The 3D projection on the Senate building was amazing and we had front row seats.
If his new adventure is a success, in 20-30 years, if I’m still around, it will be great to say that I was there when Virgin Money launched back in 2012!
