BILLIONAIRE BACKS BIM
ONE OF THE WORLD’S boldest and most famous businessmen is backing Barbados to retain pride of place in the Caribbean, even as it battles its most troublesome economic decline in recent times.
Sir Richard Branson, the man behind the global Virgin brand of more than 400 companies and 80 000 employees, is rooting for the country to make a turnaround, but he said leadership was going to be a key determinant in any recovery.
Insisting he was not making a political statement, Sir Richard told the DAILY NATION: “If you are a good leader and you can bring people along with you, you can enjoy the good times and you can work with people in getting through the bad times; being honest with them and explaining what has to be done and making sure you lead by example; making sure they respect you and that you show integrity.” (GE)
