The first event of 2015 organised by ACREW was held on Friday 27th February in Antibes. These types of events are organised to facilitate crew and to introduce them to professional development opportunities. ACREW encourages inter-professional exchanges between crew and business experts by offering free workshops, discussion groups, networking and social activities at events in yacht shows, shipyards and marinas.
ACREW Antibes was a one day crew professional development event taking place in a marquee at the IYCA Dock. The 2 hour workshops that were given:
- “Hiring with X-Ray Vision” by Alison Rentoul (The Crew Coach) for Captains
- “Creating high performing interior teams” by Peter Vogel (IYS) for Interior Crew
- “Ropes & Rigging” by Jean Christophe (GREMCO) for Deck Crew
Besides the workshops, you were able to register for personal one2one review sessions with Oliver Maher of United Advisers Marine. and Tim Reedman of St James’s place.
