What do you hope attendees will gain at your webinar?
I hope to give a good introduction on the topic of Business Intelligence – especially to those who would benefit most from it. My aim is to make the underlying technical concepts understandable, clear up common misconceptions and turn this quite abstract topic into a practical approach that can be applied in any shipping company to gain value from fleet data.
It is increasingly challenging to manage data in an effective way today in the maritime industry. Business intelligence can be a game-changer here. This is why we’d like to provide insights into the topic of BI by presenting the underlying technical concepts and showcasing how these concepts can be applied in practical scenarios.
What discussions do you look forward to having with the attendees?
I am looking forward to an exchange on the types of information attendees lack in their current business and the ideas or knowledge we could share to make such information more accessible.
I’d love to discuss hands-on challenges that companies in the shipping industry face right now when it comes to getting the most out of their gathered data. How can data analysis drive the business forward? How can maritime stakeholders be best prepared to obtain actionable insights? I’m excited to discuss these issues and more.
What do you enjoy most about your role?
I love talking to people who are passionate about the maritime world. The maritime industry is so diverse, and every person has their own point of view and varying experiences, looking at things from a different perspective. It’s inspiring, you never stop learning.
The creativity and flexibility to design something new. The potential of business intelligence and software in general to drive efficiency and optimise operations. It’s a great opportunity to assist companies in streamlining their processes.
How did you get into the industry?
Being a child of globalisation, I sailed for 3 years as a ship mechanic. Once you follow the call of the sea it will keep you near it.
I joined this exciting industry in 2006 when I boarded my first vessel and embarked on my first voyage as a Deck Cadet in Singapore. After more than a decade spent at sea, it was time to set sail towards new adventures in 2017 when I joined BASS Software.
Where is your favorite place in the world and why?
This is a tough question, there are so many beautiful places in the world.
Wharariki Beach in New Zealand is definitely one of them. It is a remote, magnificent beach in the north of the southern island. Funnily enough I believe many have seen a picture of it without noticing as it’s one of the most common Windows log-in screen pictures!
There are simply too many great places to name a single one as my favorite.
Due to my profession, I was fortunate enough to visit many, many great places. But it’s always been a great thing to approach a port with a vessel from sea and slowly see the submerging city skyline. I also keep all the different river passages and canal transits as a precious memory since you get a unique view on cities, hinterlands, and the surrounding nature.
