Seabourn announced it will add two prominent speakers on industry and innovation in the year ahead for its Seabourn Conversations onboard enrichment program. Joining the Seabourn Odyssey over the next year is Steve Wozniak, co-founder (with the late Steve Jobs) of Apple Computer Inc., and Lord Digby Jones, former Director-General of the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) and Minister of State for UK Trade and Investment.

“The art of conversation is a key element onboard our ships, and nowhere will the chatter be more listenable than on Seabourn Odyssey when Steve Wozniak and Lord Digby Jones start the dialogue,” said John Delaney, Seabourn’s senior vice president, marketing and sales.

Steve Wozniak, who will be onboard Odyssey’s December 21, 2014 voyage, designed the hardware, the circuit board design, and operating system for the Apple I personal computer. In 1985, he was awarded the National Medal of Technology by President Reagan, and released his New York Times-bestselling autobiography, iWoz: From Computer Geek to Cult Icon: How I invented the Personal Computer, Co-Founded Apple and Had Fun Doing It in 2006.

Lord Digby Jones, who will be onboard Odyssey’s March 23, 2015 cruise, is the former Director-General of the Confederation of British Industry (2000-2006) and Minister of State for Trade and Investment (2007-2008). He was knighted in 2005 for his services and became member of the House of Lords in 2007. He is currently Business Ambassador at UK Trade & Investment, Chairman of Triumph Motorcycles Limited, Corporate Ambassador for Jaguar Cars.

Seabourn Conversations hosts a variety of different speakers on its ships, from destination experts to entertainers.
