We would like to congratulate Ms Natalja Sunevica, Member of Wista Norway for successfully completing her ICS Foundation Diploma. Ms Sunevica was one of our scholarship recipients in the academic year 2019 – 2020.

Here is what she had to say:
“It could feel rather challenging and overwhelming to proceed with the studies parallel to work and private life. Do not get discouraged: one thing at a time will get you there. Make sure you follow the study plan provided by WISTA. With this you will have a consistent workflow and a good time for exam preparations. Make use of the tutors and make sure to submit all the assignments (or at least as much as possible) - tutors provide you with a valuable feedback and give good tips / practical examples…”

A big thanks to Lene Normann Olsen, Craig Jasienski, Carine Møller Mortensen, Melanie Moore, Kari Haugen, Delphine Echenique, Anne Lise Hjelseth, Courtney Burkhart & Mitty Leong for your great contributions!

We discussed the maritime industry’s biggest challenges and opportunities and what individual, team and leadership skills will we need to grow and evolve in the future in order to succeed.

We are very pleased that more than 110 people logged on to view the seminar. For those of you who missed it the full recording of the one hour session is found via this link: https://lnkd.in/d3hvb3q

There were some questions that you posted in the Q&A but that we did not have time to answer during the Teams Live Event. We did however pose these questions to 3 of the panelists after the event and this video can be viewed here: https://lnkd.in/d24YgaB
