Former British Prime Minister John Major will give the keynote speech at Computer Associates? 1998 user conference on a mystery topic.
CA has not revealed what the former British leader will discuss at the conference but he will be the main speaker at the event. The company has already scheduled Ca-World 98 from 26 April to 1 May 1998 in New Orleans and has made an appeal for speakers and presenters to get in touch.
Major, who has joined the speaking circuit to supplement his income since losing his Prime Minister?s salary at the 1997 General Election, is ?exclusively represented by the Washington Speakers? Bureau?, according to CA. Marc Morial, mayor of New Orleans, said he is delighted that CA and its conference attendees will pump an estimated $30 million into the city during CA-World, which will coincide with the Jazz Fest music and heritage event.
CA expects 20,000 participants at CA-World, which is being held two months earlier than usual to avoid the stiflingly hot summer months in Louisiana. The event will feature a floating Internet pavilion boat on the Mississippi river and numerous training and education sessions.
