Inspiring companies & their missions…

Google

“Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.”

Virgin

“Virgin believes in making a difference. We stand for value for money, quality, innovation, fun and a sense of competitive challenge. We strive to achieve this by empowering our employees to continually deliver an unbeatable customer experience.”

The Pike Place Fish company in Seattle

‘Your success isn’t in doing what we do; it’s in discovering your own way. Don’t do what we do – we made it all up…do what inspires you…make it up! You just have to be (yourself…what inspires you). And it means commit yourself to who you say you are: act like it, think like it, look like it, feel like it, speak it…be it! You will create your own way by just being yourself, doing what inspires you. The secret to our secret lies in our commitment to being who we say we are.”
