(CNS Business): Actor and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger will be visiting Cayman in February as the keynote speaker for the Cayman Alternative Investment Summit (CAIS). Schwarzenegger left politics in 2011 but he continues to be an advocate of sustainable energy and was a leading voice at the Paris climate conference last year. In an ironic twist, Schwarzenegger denounced Donald Trump before the election, saying he would not be voting for him but is stepping into the new US president-elect’s old job.

The American-Austrian action movie star will début as the new host of NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice” in January 2017.

When he comes to Cayman, Schwarzenegger will join what organisers of the CAIS said in a press release was a “star-studded line-up of special guest speakers”.

This includes Mark and Scott Kelly, twin astronauts who are helping NASA study the impact of long-duration space flight; George Whitesides, the CEO of Virgin Galactic, the world’s first commercial spaceline; Mike Abrashoff, a former Navy general famed for transforming the worst-performing ship in the Navy’s Pacific Fleet into the best-performing ship; and David McWilliams, a renowned 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 VP 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.”

The summit will be held at the new Kimpton Hotel.
