Minister for Maritime Nusrat Ghani MP announced as Keynote Speaker of the 2019 Maritime HR Conference

The Spinnaker Global Maritime HR Conference is taking place in London in May 2019, where Minister for Maritime Nusrat Ghani MP will be a Keynote Speaker.

We are delighted that Nusrat Ghani will be joining us this year,” says Karen Waltham, Managing Director of Spinnaker’s HR Consulting business which hosts the Maritime HR Conference. “This conference focuses on the heart of the maritime industry – its people. It is an excellent opportunity to share opinions and discuss key issues both sea and shore, in addition to learning and networking.”

The Maritime HR Conference is the largest worldwide gathering of maritime HR professionals and grew into the major event it is today from being the annual meeting of the Maritime HR Association, itself the largest HR membership association in shipping.

The agenda on 9-10 May at the Grange City Hotel includes:

  • Maritime economics
  • Maritime employment law
  • Minimising human error
  • Ship-to-shore & the impact on career progression
  • Wellbeing across maritime
  • Inclusivity in practice
