Our HR Consulting team is busy finalising the agenda for the 10th annual Maritime HR Conference in London this coming May.
The agenda for 12th and 13th May so far includes:
Maritime Economics – Stephen Gordon (Clarksons Research)
The Pitfalls of Poor Management – Heidi Watson (Clyde & Co)
‘Goodship’ – A Fair Transport Initiative – Kimberly Karlshoej (ITF Seafarers’ Trust) and Mark Dickinson (Nautilus International)
A Whistle-stop tour of the History of Modern Shipping – optional training session on the morning of day 1 – Phil Parry (Spinnaker Global)
We’ll also be discussing a new initiative in Maritime HR – ‘Career Bridges’. This session will provide an insight into industry research on the benefits of personality profiling for key shipping roles, from helping to identify leadership styles and competencies, to facilitating an analysis of the gap between what the industry needs from its leaders and what it actually gets. The session will also shed light on the work being done to create an industry standard development tool.
The conference also includes case study presentations by members of the Maritime HR Association. One which has already been confirmed is Career Management Training presented by a senior HR Consultant at Clipper.
This year’s sponsors so far are Zurich Insurance, Clyde & Co. and MHG Insurance Brokers. Sponsorship opportunities are still available.
We’re very excited about the way the conference is taking shape, and look forward to meeting members and non-members and discussing the timeliest issues in shipping HR today.
