"These gatherings have become incredible incubators of brilliant ideas in magical settings. I'm honored to host entrepreneurs who have the vision to see the potential of a better world."
We are delighted to be hosting this year's Leadership Gathering, Success to Significance, August 28th to Sept. 1st, 2021.
Held at the Branson Home on Necker Island, your stay promises to be a one-of-a-kind experience - meeting an incredible group of people and hearing from some brilliant speakers.
Richard Branson and Amber Kelleher-Andrews have been partnering for over five years, resulting in nearly 2 million raised for critical work on the front lines of some of the toughest issues on the planet.
Of course, it would not be a Virgin event without having a lot of fun along the way, in one of our favorite places on Earth.
We look forward to welcoming you to Necker Island!
One of the most acclaimed R&B artists of the 2000s, Ne-Yo entered the mainstream as a songwriter for Mario's "Let Me Love You" (2004), a number one pop hit. By the time Billboard determined that the romantic ballad was the eighth most successful single of its decade, Ne-Yo had racked up a career's worth of accomplishments as a composer and recording artist. He had platinum certifications for In My Own Words (2006), Because of You (2007), and Year of the Gentleman (2008), the second of which won a Grammy award in the category of Best Contemporary R&B Album. Seven of his singles, as well as five on which he appeared as a featured artist, peaked within the Top Ten of the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart. Beyoncé's "Irreplaceable" (2006) and Rihanna's "Take a Bow" (2008), two of the many songs he wrote for other artists, were smash hits as well.
Since 2010 -- he has worked extensively behind the scenes as a Motown executive, amid a slew of acting and televised talent-competition gigs -- he has continued to be known for sophisticated pop-oriented R&B, inspired as ever by the likes of Michael Jackson and Babyface. His streak of Top Ten studio albums continued through Non-Fiction (2015).
