We would like to draw your attention to the 1st Young Executives Shipping Forum (YES Forum) which will be held on Friday, 10 June 2016 from 12.00 to 17.00 hrs during POSIDONIA 2016 at POSIDONIA Conference Hall.
The 1st Young Executives Shipping Forum aims to serve as a forum of an open dialogue between Shipping Industry principals and executives with youngsters including university students, teenagers in secondary education-general or maritime- and recent graduates. Its goal is to highlight potential career and business opportunities, both at sea and ashore, in the maritime sector while creating and supporting related partnerships and initiatives. Shipping is a comprehensive industry capable of absorbing Greece’s youngsters from various educational backgrounds.
Changing the perception of the young generation about a career in shipping, both ashore and at sea, could also improve our very high rates of unemployment. We all understand that it is time to turn the crisis into opportunity for Greece.
The forum will consist of three panels. The first one will host Ship-Owners, the Second Shipping Executives and the third one Executives from the wider Maritime Services Sector. All discussions will be held in the Greek language.
The speakers will encourage the audience to follow a career in the Shipping Industry, explaining that there is room for more of our graduates. The only “obligation” is to love shipping! Posidonia 2016 is the right time to promote networking and co-ordinate initiatives, drawing young graduates to become better acquainted with shipping. We do hope that you will be able to endorse and support the YES Forum.
