We are pleased to introduce two prominent authorities on innovation and industry over the year ahead for “Seabourn Conversations,” our onboard enrichment and special guest entertainment program. Sharing their insights and interests on board Seabourn Odyssey will be 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.
With notable backgrounds and impressive resumes, both Wozniak and Lord Jones remain active and engaged on many levels. Wozniak designed the hardware, circuit board designs and operating system for the Apple I personal computer and was awarded the National Medal of Technology, the highest honor bestowed on America’s leading innovators, by President Reagan in 1985. He was inducted into the Inventors Hall of Fame in 2000, 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 Jones 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, among many other titles.
