Melbourne Bespoke Commercial Shipping Practice Course
Posted on Wednesday, October 10, 2018
The sixth edition of this popular course was held by the
Australia/New Zealand Branch in Melbourne over two days
9th-10th October 2018.
13 attendees took part, 7 from dry cargo and 6 from the tanker
side. Attendees were from companies involved in oil trading,
mining, steel production, fertiliser supply and ship's agency. The
welcome trend of a 50-50 gender split continued for this year as it
has in the recent past.
The venue was the CAE (Centre for Adult Education) conveniently
situated in the Melbourne CBD.
The Course Director Nigel D'Souza's performance was a tour de
force and the applause at the end appropriate acknowledgement of
the knowledge he conveyed about commercial shipping. Our Branch
Chairman, Nick Vann, assisted adding anecdotes from his tanker
broking career. Adam Kuner, a Branch Committee member and Manager
of Odfjell Australia, gave a short talk on the impact of the 2020
IMO fuel sulphur regulations from owners' perspective.
