Above, esteemed entrepreneur and business icon Dax Wilkinson poses beside some hippie.
Just kidding. Dax recently had the opportunity to meet Sir Richard Branson at a fundraiser in Toronto for Branson’s Virgin Unite charity. The fellows chatted for a few minutes about aviation, space travel and Yellowknife, where Dax recently visited, and where Mr. Branson once crashed a hot air balloon. Branson was down-to-earth and quite friendly. He even invited Dax to tag along on a Virgin Galactic journey into space. Dax was keen, until he learned of the “spacefare”: about $200K. Perhaps he can fly standby?
