Share this post with your friends

Geopolitical developments, and how to adjust to them, will be centre stage at the Nor-Shipping Ocean Leadership Conference on 4 April in Lillestrøm, Norway.

Anders Fogh Rasmussen, the former Secretary General of NATO and Prime Minister of Denmark, will be the headline speaker, while the overall event will focus on the central themes of People, Power and Money. A host of other shipping, political and business names will take to the stage to share insights with an audience of around 900 C-level maritime executives.

Navigating uncertainty

“This will be the first major gathering of its kind for our industry since the pandemic began, and it couldn’t be more timely,” comments Sidsel Norvik, Director, Nor-Shipping. “The world order is being disrupted, economic activity is impacted and we all need an understanding of how these events occur, and what the potential fallouts are for sustainable maritime and ocean industry development.

Keynote on “The sustainable development of a ‘blue economy’”by Kitack Lim, General Secretary, IMO in 2019.

“Our keynote speaker is, of course, highly relevant, but we also have a who’s who of leading industry names on stage to give their unique sector insights into today’s developments, and tomorrow’s plans. Now is the time when we need to gather, share knowledge, collaborate and find the optimal paths forward together. Now is the time for true leadership – in the ocean and beyond.”

Taking #ACTION

Alongside the former NATO head, a diverse array of speakers and panellists have confirmed their participation on Nor-Shipping’s conference stage in Hall E in Lillestrøm.
