Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to be the keynote speaker for the upcoming Cayman Alternative Investment Summit (CAIS), scheduled for February 15 to 17, 2017 at the new Kimpton Seafire Resort and Spa in the Cayman Islands.
The annual event provides a forum for over 400 executives to discuss opportunities and challenges facing the alternative investment community.
Schwarzenegger is an Austrian-American actor, businessman, and the former governor of California. After leaving office in 2011, Schwarzenegger has remained an outspoken advocate of sustainable energy, and was a leading voice at the Paris COP21 climate conference in 2015.
Schwarzenegger will be joined by a lineup of guest speakers, including: Mark and Scott Kelly, twin astronauts helping NASA study the impact of long-duration space flight; George Whitesides, CEO of Virgin Galactic; Mike Abrashoff, former Navy general; and David McWilliams, Irish economist, writer, broadcaster and journalist.
"We are excited to have such a diverse lineup of speakers at our upcoming event," said Chris Duggan, director of CAIS and vice president of Community Development for event sponsor, Dart.
"We believe it's important to hear viewpoints from outside the alternative investment industry, and this collection of influential voices provides attendees with an opportunity to learn about everything from the commercial space race to military tactics to entrepreneurship."
