The Ocean Leadership Conference

The Ocean Leadership Conference celebrates successes, outlines challenges and helps steer a course for the development of the industry, as true global visionaries share their thoughts on some of today’s, and tomorrow’s, most pressing issues.

We believe the industry is standing on the brink of a new age of commercial ocean activity – one that can provide immense opportunity for our traditional maritime audience. To realise that potential we need to adopt a joined-up approach, accessing the best minds and insights from relevant fields of expertise in an effort to plan the optimal, most sustainable path forwards. In a nutshell, that is exactly what our Ocean Leadership Conference is about.

The Ocean Leadership conference focus on attracting a broad range of global leaders, from a diverse array of business, political, academic and regulatory backgrounds to deliver valuable takeaways right across the board.

Our speakers in 2019 covered the most crucial areas for maritime and ocean businesses. From cyber risk and security, through to evolving maritime regulations, innovative digital technology, changing market and geopolitical drivers, new energy demands, and, crucially, enabling sustainability, both commercially and environmentally.

Our elite list of speakers and contributors at the 2019 edition of the Ocean Leadership Conference included Admiral Michael Rogers, the former director of the National Security Agency (NSA), Nobel Laureate (Economics) prize winner Paul M. Romer, IMO Secretary General Kitack Lim, Ann-Christin Andersen, TechnipFMC’s Chief Digital Officer, Geir Håøy, CEO Kongsberg, DNV GL’s Remi Eriksen, Lise Kingo, Executive Director of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) and Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, amongst others.
