Clinton at Yorkshire convention
Bill Clinton
"Clinton is still the biggest name on the world stage"
Former US president Bill Clinton is set to make a keynote speech before a sell-out crowd at the Yorkshire International Business Convention.

Mr Clinton was taking part in Friday's event as part of a world speaking tour.

Other speakers at the convention - at the Great Yorkshire Showground in Harrogate - include BBC director general Greg Dyke and BBC journalist John Simpson.

Richard Gregory, chairman of the convention, said: "The Yorkshire International Business Convention has always been synonymous with world-class speakers, attracting delegates from around the globe.

"We promised that this year's event would be the best yet - Clinton is still the biggest name on the world stage.

"An inspirational leader with a strong presence and controversial opinions, Clinton is a phenomenal name to bring to Yorkshire.

"We are absolutely delighted to have him as our keynote speaker."

Mr Clinton is currently in Britain following a five-day visit to Ireland.
