Global learning and operational technology innovator, Ocean Technologies Group, has backed a series of Maritime CEO Leader discussions hosted by Splash editor Sam Chambers.
Launched on the 14 April, the Maritime CEO Leader Series brings together some of the key people in shipping to discuss issues affecting the sector as a whole which is particularly relevant at the moment given the current restrictions in place due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Participants will also be quizzed on how they unwind and relax to cope with the hours of self-isolation during lockdown.
The first episode features Esben Poulsson, chairman, International Chamber of Shipping (ICS), Heidi Heseltine, CEO, Halcyon Recruitment and Bjørn Højgaard, CEO of Anglo-Eastern and chairman of the Hong Kong Shipowners’ Association.
The first season will run two episodes a week through April and May with more programmes planned across the maritime spectrum later in the year.
The series host Sam Chambers said, “The Maritime CEO Leader Series, powered by Ocean Technologies Group, aims to be both insightful and yet not too dry and heavy-going, giving viewers a glimpse of the real inner thought processes of many of the top names in the industry plus a look at their living rooms.”
The series will be produced in the UK by leading maritime distance learning provider, Videotel, which is one of the companies that operates under the Ocean Technology Group banner. Other companies that are part of the Group include Seagull Maritime, Tero Marine, Coex and the recently purchased Maritime Training Services.
“We are delighted that Ocean Technologies Group is backing the Maritime CEO Leader Series with Splash,” said Videotel’s MD Raal Harris.
“Splash and Maritime CEO has always managed to attract the top people in the industry to provide their insights and opinions on shipping and what their hopes are for the future. I am sure this will be a very engaging and thought provoking series,” he added.
