The Dalai Lama joins former Chairman of the International Commission on Weapons of Mass Destruction, Hans Blix, on the long list of stars from the world of business, sport and politics, who have headlined the Yorkshire International Business Convention.
Other business heavy-hitters at the conference include Mary Portas, Sir Richard Branson's right-hand man, Will Whitehorn, political heavy-weights Michael Portillo and John Prescott and athlete Steve Cram.
The Dalai Lama, will provide inspiration, insight and inner-reflection, as the meeting aims to provide business leaders in the region with inspirational speakers who will in turn inspire as well as entertain the delegates; and to provide an environment and culture designed to encourage networking and implementing business deals.
In its opening year the keynote speech was delivered by former American Secretary of State Dr Henry Kissinger and since then the Yorkshire delegates have heard from world leaders like former US Presidents George Bush Senior and Bill Clinton, Mikhail Gorbachev, Hans Blix and Archbishop Desmond Tutu as well as celebrities like Astronaut Neil Armstrong, Sir Bob Geldof, Sir John Mills and Rory Bremner.
