Who should participate?

The Blockchain for Maritime Decision Makers (BMD) Program is designed for decision-makers within the extended value chain of the maritime industry (e.g. shipowners, shipmanagers, classification societies, manning agents, charterers, port authorities, regulators, logistics & supply chain etc.) who are responsible for future business growth.

The Program assumes that the participant has little or no knowledge of the topic and uses simple language to explain the technical jargon. The Program’s focus is to assist the participant with not only understanding the strategic implications of blockchain technology but also to give the participant a personal 'starter kit' in implementing change.

This Program is also suitable for those who are within the corporate innovation or venturing divisions and associated with the maritime industry or those experienced maritime professionals considering entrepreneurship.

Companies are also encouraged to participate in teams. The core members of the team responsible for formulating and implementing strategy / business transformation are eligible for this course. Group incentives are available.
