On 5-8 October 2015 the inaugural Future Maritime Leaders Forum brings together exceptional young leaders who have the potential to shape the future of the maritime industry.
Who are the maritime leaders of the future and what are their visions for the global maritime industry? A new Danish Maritime Days initiative, Future Maritime Leaders, will engage the next generation of maritime leaders in a conversation about where the industry may be heading at a time of great transformation.
“The objective with Future Maritime Leaders is to build a truly global community of young leaders from all parts of the maritime industry who work together to come up with innovative solutions to global challenges and how the maritime industry can have a positive impact on growth, development and human wellbeing,” says Flemming R. Jacobs Secretary General of Danish Maritime Days.
At their first gathering in October, the Future Maritime Leaders will be tasked to come up with a shared ambition and guiding principles for the future of the global maritime industry. The outcomes of their discussions will be presented to the participants in the Danish Maritime Forum so the two communities may inspire and challenge each other’s ideas and solutions.
