Created jointly by the Baltic Exchange and the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers, each lecture brings together the industry's thought leaders to discuss important topical events, global trends, their effect on macro economics, shipping law and practice, and brings in to sharp focus how these are relevant to professional brokers.

Keeping up to date on developments that can move markets is a must for reputable advisers and those with a stake in the market, where a qualified and experienced broker can have a dramatic influence on a company's fortunes.

Each lecture is relevant, concise and focussed and the lectures are given by acknowledged specialists in their respective fields.
