BIMCO launches Advanced Maritime Training Week for senior managers


BIMCO has launched a new top level course for experienced senior industry professionals.

The BIMCO Advanced Maritime Training Week will take place in Copenhagen from Monday 9 October until Friday 13 October.  The five-day course will examine and analyse; markets, ship finance and maritime economics, business planning and implementation, chartering risk management and concludes with a business simulation exercise- the process and results of which will be judged by an expert panel. 

Angus Frew, CEO and Secretary General at BIMCO says: "Every sector of the commercial shipping industry is being affected by sweeping changes, business models and market forces are under reconstruction.

New innovative manufacturing methods are maturing and are expected to transform logistics’ chains. This has the potential to influence maritime transportation, but how - is still unpredictable.

This brand new course, featuring leading industry figures has been developed in direct response to comments from our members.  Pitched at a high level for senior managers, the intention is to provide the participants with a clear understanding of the developments and transformational changes impacting shipping markets worldwide.

All of the c-suite level speakers have been selected for their practical experience managing change and transformation in shipping and chartering businesses. The residential course will provide specialist training for senior staff in a “boot camp” style setting.  The week will also include trips to the Maersk company museum, to Avedore power station, in depth case studies, business simulation exercises and presentations.

Advanced Maritime Training is aimed specifically at senior chartering and operations managers working in ship owning and ship management, or for traders, commodity exporters or importers, as well as senior managers from bunker and ship agency/brokering businesses.
