As part of London International Shipping Week (LISW), Nautilus International teamed up with the MNTB and UK Chamber of Shipping to host a day-long LISW careers and skills hub.
The day was split in to three sessions and members were invited to drop in for any session or attend for the whole day.

Flagship conference: 'Tomorrow's needs'
Nautilus general secretary Mark Dickinson spoke at LISW 2017's flagship conference on Thursday 14 September, which had the theme 'tomorrow's maritime world'.
Mr Dickinson represented the International Transport Workers' Federation in his role as board adviser, and addressed the second of three sessions on the topic of 'tomorrow's needs' — what the changing business environment may mean for maritime skills and employees.
He joined varous 'thought leaders' from government, finance, international trade, shipowning, insurance and technology groups, attending the conference at the Grosvenor House Hotel on London’s Park Lane.
The first session of the conference highlighted shifting trade patterns, new technologies and disruption to business models.

In 2015, Nautilus was a media partner for the LISW, and hosted a seminar on the demand for shore-based maritime jobs. The 'Shore enough?' seminar explored the demographics of supply and demand for skilled seafarers with particular reference to city-based services. The Union also highlighted to the industry the skill loss associated with not being more inclusive and proactive, particularly in recruiting and retaining women across the board, but especially when coming ashore.
