The worst thing about being the brightest guy in the room is that when you screw up there's no one in your bright enough to help you out. I'm not Richard Brandon's greatest fan but he has it right when he says {I paraphrase) get people brighter than you around you in your team. 

What on earth would you know about being the brightest guy in any room? :lol:

Branson is not someone you want to be using as an example of an ethical or successful businessman. There's a reason why someone like that surrounds themselves with clever people. He's not smart enough to have done any of it himself. His talent is charisma and he uses it to prise money out of the hands of investors and to entice good people to work for him. Without either, he'd be just another dreamer.

I’d suggest that knowing your talents and their limits and deploying them to the successful extent that he has, 

possibly makes him the smartest, brightest guy in many rooms....

 

wish I had been so limited....

I've never liked Branson. He's one of a few people I find extremely irritating for reasons I'm not able to describe, I think it might just be instinctive. Some of the others are: the former Archbishop of Canterbury, and beardy-weirdy, Rowan Williams; Russel Brand, and...

Anyway, back on topic, the estimated number of people infected with the Coronavirus in the UK is believed to be between 35,000-50,000. It will continue to grow exponentially.

Ah, one of your weaknesses shows itself again. I don't brag about how bright I am or may be. But, my first task would definitely be to find someone brighter than me and hungrier than me with talents that I didn't have. What are your weak points?

Allowing myself to waste my time responding to you and numbnuts Dickson above you.

It's a weakness I hope not to repeat.

Back to covid, Earlier today or last night I warned that Branson was not a good example of an ethical businessman. He must have heard me because this total c**t has just asked Virgin Airline staff to take 8 weeks unpaid leave.

Well, well. We agree that Branson is not a favourite of either of us. This news broke yesterday. What would you do in his position, assuming cash reserves in the business are stretched as they seem to be in your own? Best of luck, by the way.

I was on site at the Tesco RDC at Bathgate today. Staff were telling us they aren't short of product. The problem is the rate at which people are clearing shelves. Staff have to replenish and can't and they can't get lorries out quickly enough. 

Any fool would know this......................:lol:

Shouldn't you be busy saving your business or offering your services to Richard B or the Government to sort out the business impact of the virus. Maybe you have already done that.

Worrying stuff. 

Also worrying is that Laura Ashley is likely to be the first Retail Casualty. I can testify that my wife as fought hard to keep their Stirling shop going through regular purchases!

This industry along with cafes pubs and restraints will be f**ked. Government hasn't told them to close, just told folk not to attend.
This means they can't claim insurance. Spineless cunts

My thoughts exactly. Strange move. 

Not that strange, it would appear everyone wants someone else to take responsibility for them, ie: if Boris asks people to behave sensibly and not continue with a particular habit (pubs, clubs etc) he is letting certain sections of the community down because they can't claim insurance.................'bad boris!   If on the other hand he does what he is advised to; by medical / scientific 'experts' (relating to slowing the spread of the virus down) then he is still wrong........................and he may well be and I am no expert nor indeed are the vast majority of this forum, however! one can only do as one is advised, far to many experts on here and that IS a surprise as it makes me wonder how so many of them manage to work out how to use toilet rolls .............................since they don't come with instructions?
