Our journey with Richard Branson

May 10, 2011

In 1972, Richard Branson signed an unknown folk musician named Mike Oldfield to his new company Virgin Records.  Oldfield’s was an odd instrumental album called “Tubular Bells” that ended up selling millions of copies and launching Virgin’s rise to one of the most successful independent labels of all time.  They eventually signed the Sex Pistols, the Rolling Stones, Culture Club, Human League, Janet Jackson and Peter Gabriel.

Now that his brand has spanned nearly 400 companies - including Virgin Airlines, Virgin Mobile and even Virgin Brides - Branson has become a billionaire many times over.  He has risked his life in self promotional balloon trips, is working on descending 36,000 feet below the ocean’s surface, and plans to take his mother into space.  We hung out with him for a day for Bloomberg Game Changers and he told us about the long, wild journey.

The show airs tonight 5/10/11 on Bloomberg Television, 6PM EST/9PM PST

Pancreatic Cancer Action Network PSA

September 16, 2009

The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network approached us to help tell the story of a disease the New York Times called “one of the most lethal of all malignancies.”  The disease has been in the news recently with the passing of Patrick Swayze and Randy Pausch, but the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network has been fighting for years to find a cure.  We like their peer-reviewed approach, not to mention their passionate, relentless effort.  We are very happy to help get out the message.

World Surfing Reserves PSA

September 14, 2009

With a few notable exceptions, most of us here at Luminant are pretty lousy surfers.  But we do love the ocean and strongly believe and support efforts to save it.  The World Surfing Reserves works to protect the world’s waves, surf zones and their surrounding environments from the onslaught of development and industrial waste, not to mention the many other threats.  So when Save The Waves contacted us to help get out the word, it was something we definitely felt like getting on “board” with….

Pro surfers Rob Machado, Hans Hagen, as well as entrepreneur Fernando Aguerre rally support to protect these coastal wetlands. As Rob Machado says “it’s about time.”
