Perth Bespoke Commercial Shipping Practice Course
Posted on Wednesday, October 4, 2017
The Australia/New Zealand Branch is pleased to report that it
successfully ran another two day Bespoke Commercial Shipping
Practice Course that was held this time in Perth on the 3rd and 4th
of October 2017.
We relied heavily on the local support work of our two West
Australian representatives Tony Pegum FICS and Mark
North MICS to bring this course to market.
15 attendees took part, mainly from the dry cargo side.
Attendees worked for grain traders, mining, agency and survey
companies. Again the gender split was about 50-50 which further
confirmed the increasing role women are playing in the shipping
The venue was the Holiday Inn in Perth and we were well catered
Captain N B M D'Souza FICS was the Course Director
and as usual his performance as main speaker was a tour de force.
Nick Vann FICS and Mark North MICS assisted Nigel adding anecdotes
and examples from their extensive careers in ship chartering.
This was the fifth presentation of this course in Australia but
our first in West Australia which is becoming an important area of
growth for our branch.
