Out of 1,000+ people I was then chosen as a result of this to become one of 12 ambassadors. The next stage of the process was to meet Richard Branson in his Oxfordshire residence, it was a really surreal day to say the least. We had breakfast and a round table where he shared some great gems and answered our burning questions.
I knew I had to get a Watch to him but that day felt quite pressured, there were so many of his team around him and I let fear dictate what I would do instead of boldly just presenting it to him. That opportunity passed however as I had gone above and beyond with the initial pitch I was then chosen as 1 of 2 people to get one on one mentoring with Branson and to interview him in front of a live audience.
