Seabourn books Apple-co founder, British industrialist as speakers

The 'Seabourn Conversations' enrichment program has booked Steve Wozniak, co-founder (with the late Steve Jobs) of Apple Computer, and Lord Digby Jones, former director general of the Confederation of British Industry and minister for UK trade and investment.

Wozniak designed the hardware, circuit board and operating system for the Apple I personal computer and was awarded the National Medal of Technology, the highest honor bestowed on American innovators, by President Reagan in 1985.

Jones led the Confederation of British Industry from 2000 to 2006 and was trade minister from 2007 to 2008. He was knighted in 2005 and became member of the House of Lords in 2007. He is currently business ambassador at UK Trade & Investment, chairman of Triumph Motorcycles and corporate ambassador for Jaguar Cars.

Wozniak will be aboard Seabourn Odyssey's Dec. 21 voyage and Jones on the ship's March 23 cruise.
