Young Shipping Professionals – “Slow Steaming” Conference – Nov 2013

JLJ Maritime SA were proud sponsors of the Young Shipping Professionals Conference on ‘Slow Steaming’, held on the 6th November, 2013 on the historic museum ship the “HELLAS LIBERTY”.

Around 100 members of Young Shipping Professionals (YSP) Greece, boarded the “Hellas Liberty” in Piraeus.

Speakers included Ms Irene Anastassiou of Hill Dickinson International, Ms Elina Souli of Skuld Hellas, Mr Chris Spencer and Ms Jessica Tyson both of CF Spencer & Co, whilst Chairman of the conference was the YSP Board Member, Alexander G. Tsavliris of Tsavliris Salvage.

The presentations provided plenty of insightful information from differing perspectives and addressed the impact of Slow Steaming for all parties involved in Marine Insurance and contained the all important ingredient of a little humour.

Guests were additionally treated to a brief video clip on how the last remaining Liberty vessel was brought from the Hudson River to Greece by Captain Vassilis Konstantakopoulos of Costamare. Drinks and “nibbles” were on hand after the presentations which ensured all the guests left suitably content.

The event was also kindly sponsored by: Chios Navigation, Fender SA, Lion Shipbrokers and Skuld Hellas.
