With more generations represented in today’s workforce than ever before, the differences between those generations has become more clear. Therefore, it is essential that businesses educate their teams on how to deal with and capitalize on the unique work styles, skill sets, preferences, and vantage points of each generation.

This session looks at the influences and needs of each generation, helping you to better understand the multiple perspectives of your colleagues and peers, letting your diversity strengthen your work together.

Within the growing renewable energy market, production is increasingly moving offshore, both in a move to capture better and more abundant energy resources as well as for social and logistical reasons. Half of the world’s population lives within 60 km from the coastline, making it a natural match for energy supply and demand. Demand for new-build and converted FPSO (Floating Production Storage and Offloading) vessels and FLNG (Floating Liquid Natural Gas) facilities have increased due to the declining rate of new onshore oil discoveries to historic low levels and also from technology that enables efficient deepwater oil exploration in unprecedented ocean depths.

European Maritime Sector Networking Dinner

During these past eight months, the Chairs of the working group overcame difficulties and led the WG to make things happen: the drafting of the Shipbuilding Position Paper was realised, a call with EU DG-Trade counterparts in Brussels discussing the high tech supply chain was initiated, lobby actions advocating for business restart in cruise were taken and comments on the European Commission’s White Paper on Foreign Subsidies has been submitted. To see through our end goal of establishing a level playing field and build a platform for strong EU-China cooperation, more advocacies will need to be carried out in the second half of the year, and we are especially looking forward to the EU-China Shipbuilding Dialogue later this year. In order to realise WG members’ expectation, we would like to meet you and invite you to share your experience, your ideas and perspectives, but most of all to meet each other and have fun.

Let this be an evening to celebrate our commitment and support for each other!

As the regulatory landscape evolves and new challenges arise for companies, general counsels and compliance departments have become increasingly important, helping organisations to adapt. As such, there is significant pressure on compliance professionals to ensure that companies meet their obligations.
The skillset of General Counsels and Compliance officers has had to increase in tandem with the volume and complexity of regulations. Where once compliance officers operated like lawyers, now they also need to be techies with a deep understanding of the technology estate. It is a multi-dimensional challenge.
