Holly Branson: Meet the Author
“Jean Oelwang is a woman like no other. She’s the kind of person you want around you, all of the time. I’ve known Jean for over 15 years, and I’m forever amazed by her calm presence, mixed with an insatiable desire to bring people together,to change the world. Beyond being one of my favourite people in the world, Jean is also the founding CEO and President of our not-for-profit foundation, Virgin Unite, and the author of a wonderful new book called Partnering. When given the chance to sit down with Jean for a Meet The Author interview, I jumped at it.
After spending decades of her life incubating a long list of global collaborations through Virgin Unite – including The Elders, The B Team, and the Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship – Jean saw first-hand what is possible when you collaborate on a deeper level, and she wanted to share her learnings in her wonderful new book Partnering. After interviewing and studying over 60 of the world’s most powerful and successful partnerships (including Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter, and Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Leah Tutu), it was fascinating to hear Jean speak about the ingredients of deep co-creation, and the profound positive, exponential impact it can have.”
