Shipping is an industry of traditions. It’s hardly a surprise when you consider the industry’s long history, but with the huge technical and operational advancements of recent years it’s no wonder that these traditions are under the microscope at this year’s Connecticut Maritime Association’s (CMA) annual conference – detailed in our guest blog from the organisers. I’ll be speaking on a panel at the CMA conference on people in shipping – a fantastic opportunity and a real honour.We also take a look this month at employment and hiring in Singapore with the great push for local talent in the region. What does this mean for employers, and indeed job seekers? Our Strategic Relationship Director Eric Branson discusses the impact of this classic case of too much demand and not enough supply.
It’s an exciting time for Spinnaker as we grow our focus on the gas market, which is good timing as the LNG market matures. It’s such an exciting time to be involved within the gas market, particularly with dedicated consultant support in this area.
As ever, with our blogs we’re always keen to know your thoughts. You can tweet me at@spinnakerglobal
