When something is no longer available in the same way as it is normally, its value tends to become more obvious than it was previously. And so it is with networking, the benefits of which are many and varied. This activity can be shown to fulfil very useful purposes, at the same time as being thoroughly enjoyable, with potential for valuable outcomes.
Such thoughts have arisen during the enforced semi-isolated existence most people in the UK have endured, while the pandemic lockdown period unfolded. This restricted lifestyle is extending into the greatly limited ‘opening up’ phase. Networking is not on the agenda for the weeks ahead.
Opportunities for networking at our London & South East Branch events – frequent seminars and social/networking evenings – often have rewarding consequences.

In the first quarter of this year, a number of newbuilding ore carriers were delivered to owners in South Korea and China. These were among a total of 20 in the Guaibamax 325,000 deadweight tonnes class scheduled for delivery during 2020. Some may be delayed if the coronavirus pandemic has disrupted shipbuilders’ construction programmes.
