Flagship conference: 'Tomorrow's needs'

Nautilus general secretary Mark Dickinson will speak at LISW 2017's flagship conference on Thursday 14 September, which has the theme 'tomorrow's maritime world'.

Mr Dickinson will represent the International Transport Workers' Federation in his role as board adviser, and will address 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 will join 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 will focus on shifting trade patterns, new technologies and disruption to business models. This session will be addressed by International Maritime Organisation (IMO) secretary-general Kitack LIm as well as economic, business and research leaders.

LISW 2015

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.

  • Presentations from speakers at the Nautilus Shore enough? seminar on 7 September 2015 can be found in our Publications area on the English language website under the tab called Nautilus Reports.
