C-suite conversation – Meeting digital talent needs for maritime

The third day of Sea Asia 2021 kicked off with a conversation between ICS chairman Esben Poulsson and Christopher J. Weirnicki, Chairman, President and CEO of ABS on meeting digital talent needs for maritime.

The conversation covers the key areas related to future talent for the maritime industries including:

- The treatment of seafarers during the Covid pandemic

- Learning rather than training

- Modernising regulatory training standards such as STCW

- Seafarer supply issues and the need for a collaborative effort

- The skills required for digital skill sets

- Taking decisions with data and the changing role of the seafarer
