Proud to support @wayve_ai - the pioneers of the self-driving world. They’ve proven the science, assembled an incredible team & now have announced a significant new round of funding. Congratulations to the team! Excited to be part of the journey.…
After hearing @drwilliamli discuss his brilliant book, #EatToBeatDisease, at a @VirginUnite gathering, I’m feeling inspired by the power that lies in our food choices:
Triplets in space! Watch 3 of 7 satellites being released by @VirginOrbit into orbit at 17,500mph #AboveTheClouds

It’s been a year without my mum and while I miss her every day, I try and celebrate her life by making people smile – especially my kids and grandkids. She was the one who taught me never to take life too seriously and how family is the most important thing in the world.
Thrilled to celebrate @VirginOrbit going public & be with the team virtually as they ring the bell at @Nasdaq where it is now trading as #VORB – a step towards opening space for good, launching satellites that improve life on Earth
Good morning from @TimesSquareNYC! At 9:30 ET, #VirginOrbit will ring the bell @Nasdaq where we are now trading as #VORB. Watch @Today this morning with @richardbranson + CEO Dan Hart to learn more about this achievement, then come meet the team #IRL. #VOeverupwards #space4good

Sorry I can’t join the @VirginOrbit team in person to ring the bell at @Nasdaq tomorrow, but excited to be there virtually celebrating with the team.
Friends & family, including myself and my wife Joan, recently caught omicron. Thanks to all being vaccinated and boosted, our symptoms have been mild. Can’t stress enough – if you’re eligible and in a country that offers boosters, get your booster now.
I’m currently recovering from a mild COVID case. Thankfully, I’m fully vaccinated & boosted (urge everyone – where available – to do the same) and feeling fine.

My thoughts on COVID and its effects on younger generations
Thank you Arch for your love, life, laughter and leadership
I’m so sad that Archbishop Tutu has passed away – the world has lost a giant. He was a brave leader, a mischievous delight, a profound thinker, and a dear friend
Happy Christmas from my family to yours.
Wow - stunning Christmas skies seen from a @VirginAtlantic flight. Looks perfect conditions for Santa's special night. Thanks Paul Williams, one of our most loyal of flyers, for the most magical of pictures @pcwilliams
Merry Christmas Eve Eve.

I’ve really enjoyed reading a huge variety of different books with my @literati book club this year - there have been so many fascinating discussions and thought-provoking insights. Here’s what we’ve been reading:
When @oceanunite launched six years ago, protecting 30% of the ocean by 2030 was an idea. Today, the 30x30 target is supported by more than 100 countries. But there’s a long way to go – here’s the latest
Here are my highlights of working with Ocean Unite. Now, with its new name, new partners, and new challenges to overcome, @ORRAAnews fight for the ocean will go from strength to strength

.@VirginStartUp has supported some amazing small businesses – and they have all got some brilliant gifts on offer this Christmas #DeckTheSmalls
Are Brits going big on small this Christmas? 🤔 🇬🇧 We’re shining a light on founders this year, and celebrating those whose workshops are often hidden away in sheds, kitchens and garages and don’t always get the recognition they deserve.#DeckTheSmallsavsu3

“You should dare to dream a dream for others” – beautiful words from @enyamayaro’s grandmother and a powerful reminder. Here’s more from my @literati interview with Elizabeth:

On #HumanRightsDay , remember the devastating impacts of the failed war on drugs. One in five prisoners worldwide is incarcerated for drug-related offences. Time to #standup4humanrights, end criminalisation and focus on people’s health. @CND_tweets
On #HumanRightsDay, the UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs silences a UN human rights expert's presentation of a study on the impacts of punitive drug policies. That’s a worrying message from the CND.…
