Success to Significance

Is your life moving at warp speed? Do you find yourself overstimulated, time-starved, and in need of a serious reboot and inspiration boost? If the answer is a resounding “YES!” then consider joining founder of Virgin Group, Sir Richard Branson, and Kelleher International CEO, Amber Kelleher-Andrews, for Success to Significance, a leadership gathering designed for high-achievers like you.

These gatherings have become incredible incubators of brilliant ideas in magical settings. I’m honoured to host entrepreneurs who have the vision to see the potential of a better world.

– Richard Branson

Collaboration is an important avenue to effect lasting change in our lives and communities. Since 2004 when Branson and team created Virgin Unite they have aimed to create sustainable change around the world. Kelleher International is proud to be a part of those efforts through the “Success to Significance” Leadership Gatherings hosted on Necker Island. We are connecting a global community who share our belief that the entrepreneurial spirit and disruptive ideas, together with the right people, can solve the world’s most intractable problems.

Held at the Branson home on Necker Island, these gatherings are truly a one-of-a-kind experience where you will meet an incredible group of world leaders while having a lot of fun in one of our favorite places on Earth.  For over five-years our partnership has raised almost $2 million for critical work on some of the toughest issues facing our planet.

Planning for the March 1-5, 2020 Leadership Gathering is in the works. We would love to welcome you into this constellation of passionate and dedicated change-makers. To get you excited about attending we’re sharing the experience of past Leadership Gathering events we’ve co-hosted with Virgin Unite in the BVI’s.

Of course an individual can make a huge difference, but it’s when those individuals come together with like-minded souls that they can change the world forever and, importantly, for the better.
