Washington, Feb 24 (ANI): Former President George W. Bush will embark next month on a series of speeches that will take him to Canada, Europe and Asia, his advisers have said.
The former president already has plans for about 10 speeches over the next year, and will do more, Politico reported.
During his final news conference, Bush had predicted that he would be back in the saddle quickly. He has stuck to that: An offering for speeches went up on the Washington Speakers Bureau website on January 29, the week after he left the White House.
Bush, who moved to Dallas last week after spending the first month of his ex-presidency at his ranch, is also working on a book about major decisions he made as the 43rd president.
The first speech will be March 17 in Calgary, Alberta. The Canadian event, to be held in a convention center before a largely business audience, is being promoted as A conversation with George W. Bush. It is closed to the press.
President during a period of great consequence, George W. Bush shares thoughts on his eight momentous years in the Oval Office and discusses the challenges facing the world in the 21st century, the brochure says.
Washington Speakers Bureau also represents the former first lady, Laura Bush, and the younger brother of the former president, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush
The suggested topic is Remarks by George W. Bush. The offering notes that he travels from Texas. Fees based on event location, the bureau says (ANI)
