Dispatches No. 443

Futurenautics and InterManager  are  undertaking a survey on maritime connectivity and software applications used onboard ship to gain a better understanding of current and future requirements. It works with clients not only to improve their own commercial offerings but to surface insight and intelligence which can benefit the wider maritime and shipping community. By sharing your views and expertise you will be contributing not only to improved products and services but to a series of intelligence white papers which will be shared freely across the industry.

You can take the survey by clicking on the following link: https://www.research.net/r/MARCON_IM

Your answers will be completely anonymous and used solely for the purposes of this research. No information will be collected that would allow the identification of any individual response. 


Thank you for sharing your views and expertise.

Seafarers UK 24 Peaks Challenge, 6-7 July

For one of the toughest, most exhilarating and empowering corporate events, Seafarers UK is recruiting teams of four-seven walkers, plus a support driver per team, for the charity’s 2019 fundraising event in July. Teams need a good base level of fitness and a commitment to training, including steep hill hiking to prepare for the two 10-14 hour back-to-back days. To contribute towards vital funding to support seafarers, every team pledges to raise a minimum of £4,000 through fundraising. Every team member receives a T-shirt, medal and great support for their preparation and fundraising, both in the build-up to the event and during the exciting weekend. After this fantastic team-building and truly challenging event, team meetings will never be the same! Does your organisation have what it takes?

Women in Shipping Summit

Winds of change within the maritime industry have seen the women’s movement improve shipping. The wave of equality may not be perfect, but through embracing the talent and value of women, the industry has become more innovative and more open to change. But understanding the challenges women face and acknowledging the value they can provide is only the start. The Women in Shipping Summit will take place at the Mary Ward House Conference & Exhibition Centre, London, and is an officially endorsed event of LISW19. Over the course of the two days keynotes, presentations and sessions will cover everything from opportunities for diversity, challenging unconscious bias, health, mentoring and attracting talent, and helping you find your executive voice. This event will aim to present solutions to improve the status quo – so that you will leave with a set of practical advice and tools you can use to build your career in the maritime industry.


As InterManager are supporters of the event, you’re entitled to a 20% discount in addition to the early bird which is ending on 14th June.
