Drastic global changes can rapidly impact even the most traditional businesses. While Covid-19 fast-forwarded innovation and talk of digitization, it also reminded companies of the importance of personal relationships and the value of people within a corporation.
Windward CEO Ami Daniel asked Keld Demant, Group CEO of Bunker Holding, and a global leader in bunkering, to share his insight on the importance of personal relationships when running a decentralized business, the driving power behind digitization, and how to create value within an organization experiencing rapid changes.
No doubt COVID-19 has transformed the global community, but for the oil and shipping industries, it created the Perfect Storm - challenging not only the commercial environment and where people work, but also the way the work itself is performed. This is especially true for safety-related work which is always the top-priority, forcing the business leaders to think differently about communication, collaboration, and community.
Ami Daniel asked Guy Mason, Global Head of Shipping at BP, to share his leadership insights, especially today, as the oil and shipping industries must quickly adapt in order to keep trade safe and efficient.
COVID-19 has brought trade, shipping, and maritime security to the forefront of global discussions. However, these are not new topics. Some nations, such as Australia, are amongst the leaders of maritime border protection due to the nature of the country being an island, where protection of health, trade, and environment is constantly at the forefront.
Ami Daniel asked Rear Admiral Lee Goddard, commanding officer for the Australian Maritime Border Command, to share his key insights as leaders all around the world are required to adapt how they work, manage, lead, and communicate.
