Richard Branson to be Keynote Speaker at SolidWorks World 2009

Hot off the presses today is the news that entrepreneur extraordinaire Richard Branson will be a Keynote Speaker at SolidWorks World 2009.  Richard is the man behind the Virgin Group which started as a record company but has since expanded to include airlines, mobile phones, broadband, and commercial space flight just to name a few.

When “the list” was published at Matthew West’s Blog a few weeks back Mr. Branson was one of the folks that quickly caught my eye.  (In fact…it turns out that I was the first to guess him!)  I’m really looking forward to hearing him speak.
