Want to meet Richard Branson and the Dalai Lama?

I’ve been wanting to meet Richard Branson for AGES.

And I may just have found out a way to do it, and perhaps get you in as well.

And as a bonus, they are talking about throwing in the Dalai Lama 🙂

Are you interested, if I can swing it?

  1. Chris French Says:

    I prefer to meet the Dali Lama but if they throw in Branson then ok !

  2. Bill Young Says:

    I would prefer to meet the Dali Lama more than Branson however both together would be a bonus. Keep me posted.

  3. Sandra Sorensen Says:

    I will love to meet Richard Branson. He appears to have created an amazing balance between being hugely affluent while being deeply compassionate and caring. He has this unapologetic and brave way of embracing life and living his life to the fullest while caring deeply for the planet and its people. I get the best “hit” from him whenever I hear him speak.

  4. Jacqueline Says:

    I would be so HONORED to meet Richard Branson. He is an interesting person with amazing talent. It is hard to pick one over the other because of the spiritual grounding the Dali Lama would bring. Hopefully you can swing both 🙂

  5. Suzie Ryan Says:

    Richard Branson – WOW! I’ve read his autobiography, now there’s a real life mentor, not afraid to elevate others who are smarter than him, to achieve the desired results. Richard didn’t get to where he is today purely because of who he is, his ability to select the right people for the right job has helped elevate him to where he is. He puts the FUN into fundamental differences between mediocrity and magic!

    My dream is to meet Richard Branson too, if anyone can pull this off, I reckon you can David. How’s your dating life going by the way?

    Kind Regards

    They are both amazing and I would be honored to meet them. Wow… For Real?

  7. Wendy Says:

    I have watched as Richard continues to explode exponentially in every thing he does. No fear holding him back. What a great mentor he would be. Meeting him and perhaps being able to ask a few pertinent questions would be wonderful and very enlightening, I would imagine. Although I would probably ask you some of the same questions, David. Best wishes in making this happen. You can do it!
    To your vibrant health, Wendy in Michigan

    all the best s you work this out. my choice is the Dalai Llama, to learn from him about peace, discipline, and focus in troubled times.

  9. Lynne Barnhart Says:

    I would love to meet Richard Branson. My husband is dylexic & to see someone who also had dyslexia that has accomplished so much is such an inspiration. The Dalai Llama wrote a book about death that changed my life. No matter how hard I worked I was not moving forward, after the death of my 20 year old son. A friend suggested I read a book by my the Dalai Llama & it was like someone pulled out the thorn in my hand. I began to heal & have moved on with my life now & I recommend this book to others. I would love to see them both. I can only imagine the energy of being in their physical presence. My husband & I went from being the best financial managers to being in a lot of debt. I can’t imagine the state of mind I would be in with out inspiration. I know I will meet them both.

  10. Rob Ryan Says:

    Both for the obvious reasons. More than a great opportunity. So why not dream a little more? Let`s add Obama, a great painter, a leading edge pianist, composer, writer and a scientist/positive psychologist and a genius child! And what questions/topics to discuss. What dreams do you dream?

  11. Jed A.Reay Says:

    Sorry Richard but I would be fulfilled to sit with the the Dalai Lama. Right now in this time we need his wisdom and guidance. And learning from him would benefit many more.

  12. lisa-maree Says:

    yes, this would be fantastic. i like the dalai lama, to be in the space he creates is fabbo.

    thanks for the offer, i look forward to the opportunity. ciao ciao

  13. Rafe Beeson Says:

    The Dalai Lama would be ok I guess, but come on Richard Branson!!!!! I just watched Iconoclast season 4 with Richard and Desmund Tutu…a must see by my standards


  14. sabra Says:

    I would love to meet them both! If only one; I ‘d have to say the Dalai Lama. I’m curious about his feelings in regards to the current global unrest. Can he suggest practical ways as life coaches for us to address these issues in a positive manner? I am sure he can. For that matter I sure that Richard Branson could as well.

  15. Angela-Clare Pollard Says:

    Would absolutely love to meet Richard Branson, so much to learn from someone so accomplished and enterprising. However, the privilege of meeting the Dalai Lama… words fail me. Through his help with FIU, I am about to start my masters degree there, and that is just the latest reason. WOW.

  16. Jayne Tang Says:

    Having heard so much about Sir Richard Branson’s significant contributions to this world and his name flashing brightly at the business frontier making positive difference to the humanity…I will be most blessed to meet Sir Richard Branson one day soon! There’s never such thing as coincidence right, as I did have thoughts coming and going about how nice when I can speak with Richard Branson one day!! Wa-lah.

    He had made such impactful differences with his social entrepreneurship in such humble fashion…Richard Brandson always been an inspiration for me to live life with passion! Been always wanting to pick up his book, shy to say I had never did yet…maybe I am destined to meet him in person first before reading his books! Whichever comes first, I’ll be glad to stand in great receiver-ship to soak in Sir Richard Branson’s presence fully!

    As for Dalai Lama, my personal coach & I have been both a great fan of him too!! His everyday affirmation book, practices and spiritual reminders of way of living has been the cornerstone of how I continue to remind myself to live my life with highest consciousness of non-judgmentalism and great compassion. I’ll be blown away when Dalai Lama & I can meet eyes to eyes someday soon too! Namaste.

    I admit that I am greedy when come to learning, growing and expanding my consciousness…so I’ll be most glad to meet them both!…yeah, can feel it in my bones. Keep me posted of the unfoldment! Thank you David…God bless U!

  17. Lesley Ingves Says:

    About 10 years ago I started a 101 lifetime goals list and meeting the Dalai Lama is still open on that list – I would love to put a check beside that one!

  18. Christine Adnani Says:

    The Dalai Lama for sure. Wow!

  19. Carol Says:

    Meeting the Dahli Lama would be the fulfillment of a life long dream for me!

  20. Dick Greene Says:

    Wow, to make such a choice is a tough decision, both of these rank at the top on my list.

    The Dalai Lama is #1, Richard Branson certainly #2.

    Best Wishes,

    Dick Greene

  21. Carrie Madu Says:

    Both would be amazing! My first choice would be Richard Branson. There is just something about him that emanates humanity. He always seems to be pushing past the comfortable into the places where everyone wishes to follow.

    Carrie Madu

  22. Mack Says:

    Richard Branson. For real!

  23. V. Simon Says:

    I would love to meet them both but my first choice would have to be Dalai Lama.

  24. Charlotte, Sacramento, CA Says:

    The Dalai Lama is the world’s greatest coach. He radiates unconditional acceptance and non-judgmental compassion.

  25. Natalie Says:

    Definitely the Dalai Lama, but RB is a legend too!

  26. Anne Says:

    Dalai Lama is a great humanitarian, however, I would rather meet Richard Branson because he is a successful business man. I would love to hear how he got to where he is today.

  27. Suzanne Says:

    To be in the presence of either would be an amazing opportunity for growth. I look forward to the chance to meet either.

  28. Enri Says:

    Richard Branson. I really like his ease on life and yet so confident….

  29. harris goldman Says:

    No disrespect to the Dahli Lama but Branson is the one I’d like to meet. He is the epitome of a true and successful entrepreneur.

  30. Isabelle Says:

    I am totally inspired by both of these amazing souls. Having to choose today, I would definitely welcome the opportunity to meet Richard Branson as I totally admire his business style and personal values.

  31. Virginia Underwood Says:

    I can’t begin to even tell you how long I have wanted to see the Dalai Lama. He has been a source of inspiration and incredible role model! How exciting!!

  32. Arpad Petrass Says:

    Dali lama

  33. Martina Schramm Says:

    I am admiring both , and I think it is almost impossible to decide upon whom to meet , since they both represent respective areas that are uncomparable.
    So if I had the choice, the entrepreneur in me would choose Sir Richard Branson half a day and the spiritualist in my the Dalai Lama the other half of the day :}} – It did not say anywhere that you could not have it all .

  34. Michelle Cardona Says:

    The Dalai Lama without a doubt!!!

  35. Goran Despot Says:

    Dear David
    thank you for sharing great ideas and insights, i love your communications.
    Personally i’d love to meet both people since each in his own right has got substantial experiences to share.
    I do admire Dalai lama for his ceaslesless efforts towards peace as well as
    his tibetanian heritage of loving kindness in spite of predicament of his country.
    I believe he’s true example of a great teacher and leader for which our world is a better place.
    Rich Branson is obviously every entrepreneur’s inspiring and exciting figure to emulate, or at the very least to learn from.
    So i certainly would combine this two outstanding people. However, if you ask me to choose one (do you? (-: ) i would meet with Dalai Lama.
    Your response?
    Have fantastic evening, regards from Pretoria, South Africa from


  36. David Wood Says:

    well – I think we’ve certainly hit a hot button!. David – Lynn Twist will actually be at the event too – along with Stephen Covey, Bryan Adams, and Paula Abdul.

    Wendy – I wonder if we have the same colleague who kissed Branson (initials AD?)

    Thank you for the two comments from people saying they don’t know me, and therefore wonder if this is real. Fair point – I guess could be a midget transvestite nazi from Peru – with online you never know hmmmm? If it gives you any comfort – the guys at http://www.tlc8.com think I’m Ok enough to let me in and play 🙂

    Dalai Lama

  39. sean i Says:

    I would love to meet Richard B and Dalai lama

    the funny thing about your email is that i just wrote done my MUST MEET list on Sunday,

    I had Dalai lama on my list. and on Monday i receive an email from you saying you are plannign to bring them.. its freaky!

    Any way make it happen and i am in .


  40. Eileen Says:

    Greetings David, When I saw the subject line in your email I thought that it was someone I knew possibly playing a joke on me because anyone who know me know that I Richard Branson is on the top of my list of “people you would love to meet”. Number one because of his committment to humanity and number two because we were born the same day, same year and around the same time on different sides of the world. I have always hoped that I could meet him and see if (astrologically) there are any simlarities. I know we both share a love of creative entrepreneurship and a love for all people, but to meet a person who I admire so much and who will leave such an imprint on society is more than I could dream of. The Dalai Lama on the other hand has help to influence my life in so many ways that meeting him would be such an honor.

  41. Ali R. Rodriguez Says:

    Definitely RICHARD! They’re already saying the Dalai is the “bonus” so one will come with the other; besides, if only one choice, RICHARD is your win-win. He’s one of the smartest humans in the planet. Much can be learned to forge ahead at full force during these interesting socio-economical and geo-political times.

  42. moira congreve Says:

    I would love to meet both as they have inspired so many people

  43. Hillary Hutchinson Says:

    Tough call, but if one comes as a bonus to the other, well, I’d go for the pair of ’em. They have both influenced me in different ways: in living a peaceful, mindful life and in going for my dreams.

  44. Andrew Paton Says:

    Greetings David. Branson has been my number one Business Champion for more than ten years now. I too have a short list of people I would most like to meet and share a beer with and he is number one ! His contribution to business modeling, human development, and challenging boundaries is second to no one else on the planet. I would be thrilled to meet the man that has passivly driven me to be a success; a man who has challenged me to be a better member of society through business and personal spheres of influence. As Richard would say , “Screw it… Let’s do it !”. Andrew

  45. Sandra Says:

    Although meeting both Sir Richard and the Dalai Lama would be a wonderful experience, the Dalai Lama has inspired not only myself but many of my spiritual leaders and meeting him would be a great blessing.

  46. Shana James Says:

    What an amazing blessing to meet these men. I want to meet both of them!! I don’t like choosing, but if I had to I think I’d choose the Dalai Lama. Don’t make us choose 😉

  47. tina Says:

    WOW!! This would be an outstanding opportunity. I share most of the sentiments stated above. I would love to meet both, but if I had to choose, I would choose the Dalai Lama

  48. Conrad Says:

    Who would miss out on the opportunity to meet and be inspired by these icons?

  49. Dale Says:

    NO CONTEST. Ever met a spiritually enlightened being? Not to be passed up. The Dalai Lama it is

  50. Terreeia Says:

    Even though I subscribe to Buddhist practices, I am thoroughly intrigued by Richard Branson’s vision and sense of timing. He sees the world from a higher space and I would love to be able to be there to see his brain and heart at work!

  51. Mel Says:

    Funny that… those are the 2 people of my list I really want to meet …. I’d be so there 🙂

  52. Juanita Says:

    I would love to meet the two most influential people in the world 🙂 Just let me know when and how and i’m there 🙂

  53. Cher Says:

    Why would I settle for one if both are possible. I can see them showing up together on Iconoclasts interviewing each other. Richard Would be showing the Dali Lama his latest plane & DL will show Bransen how to fly without a plane. Juicy!

  54. Stephanie Says:

    I am a Brit and when I arrived here 24 years ago on Virgin, I thought it was really cool that I might get to meet some ‘famous’ people. Well, 24 years on – & Virigin is still a BRILLIANT airline and Sir Richard has become an enormous influence. He would be great to share a pint with!!!!

  55. Cynthia Says:

    Both…they are equaly important for different reasons. What an amazing idea. Only you could pul this off! or can you???

  56. Robert Says:

    This would be the opportunity of a lifetime. It would be great to meet both, but if I had to choose, I would choose Richard Branson.

  57. donna Says:

    I agree with Robert,this would be an amazing opportunity but if i only get to choose one it would be the Dalai Lama..

  58. Cathy Says:

    For me it would be the Dalai Lama hands down, just being in His Holiness’s presence is an amazing experience. I have always wanted to meet him directly. Richard Branson would be very inspiring also. Lynn I know from my work, and she is always a great speaker and example to emulate. So if you have them all, even better!

  59. Carrie Says:

    The Dalai Lama would be amazing.

  60. Vassia Says:

    This seems almost too good to be true. What an amazing experience that would be… Would they speak on beliefs they share? On one’s life choices? Although I live in Greece and this would probably take place in the U.S., I would do my best to participate. I would choose Richard Branson if I had to, his beliefs, motives and practices are more close to how I think and act.

  61. Dolly Says:

    I spent 9 days with the Dalai Lama twice in the last 2 years, once in my hometown Houston, and last year for 9 days at LeHigh University in Pennsylvania for his teachings on the Great Treatise on the Path of Enlighenment. These are incredible spiritual experiences one can have. So, it would be great if more people could hear His Holiness messages. In terms of Richard Branson, he is one Man I sure would want to get a hug from. While he might be able to impart very valuable business accumen for us coaches and entrepreneurs wannabe, I would prefer to see the Dalai Lama and Richard Branson dialogue with each other what they think need to take place to shift the consciousness of the inhabitants of this planet Earth. Question: these men are highly in demand, why is the scheduled date of the meeting not posted?

  62. Maria Says:

    Well, no I would hate to meet dalai Lama! LOL
    Are you kidding?
    Of course I’d love to meet them!!!
    If you can make happen, I’m in!!!

  63. Sandra Hughes Says:

    Mmmm. Would not pass up the chance to meet either of them. If I had to choose? If it really is a meeting, then Richard Branson. If it is simply an opportunity to be in the presence of – the Dalai Lama

  64. Elaine Mc Guinness Says:

    To meet both Richard and the Dalai Lama, and if I had to choose, the Dalai Lama. The world needs inspiration in these times and the more people that are inspired by enlightened beings like the Dalai Lama, the better. The Word can spread to bring about positive change in the world. Count me in, I would love to know when and where. These 2 people show what we can all aspire to and therefore are role models for the power of the human spirit and mind. Anything is possible if we think it is.

  65. Teresa Says:

    thank you – amazing. I live 2 hours away from Calgary. How could I not see these incredible teachers. So yes I have registered. I follow your ‘stuff’ and a lot of what you are doing. You are an inspiration and I’d love to say hello if you are in Calgary.


  66. Paul Says:

    The dali lama. I would never turn down the opportunity to meet anyone as I believe you get the best out of life by being open minded.

  67. Ingrid Says:

    The Dalai Lama… I’ve always wanted to meet him, in fact, it’s one of my written goals in the spiritual area!

  68. roben Says:

    nee nee nee!!!!!!!

  69. Amanda Mc Says:

    Richard Branson. I would be honoured to meet Richard Branson.

    To meet the Dalai Lama as well, well definately. Imagine it !!! I feel overwhelmed at the thought.

    Thankyou, Amanda
