Navis has opened up online voting for the Inspire Awards, sponsored by Port Technology International (PTI), to celebrate ocean supply chain achievements and Navis customers driving change in the industry.
Votes can be made by logging on through its Collaboration Center (NCC) with no limit to the number of submissions. Voting ends January 31, 2017.
A ceremony for the Inspire Awards will be held at Navis World 2017 with PTI recognising the winners who will be selected based on a combination of peer voting on the NCC and through final selection by the Navis and PTI judging panel.
Captain Richard Phillips, former Maersk captain and inspiration for the movie ‘Captain Phillips,’ has also been announced as the Navis World 2017 keynote speaker. During his presentation, ‘Steering Your Ship Through Rough Waters: Lessons on Leadership,’ Phillips will share his dramatic story and draw lessons from it, offering insights to help leaders, teams and organizations survive and thrive, even in times of extreme or dire circumstances.
Andy Barrons, SVP and CMO, Navis, said: “The Navis Inspire Awards are all about celebrating the successes of our customers, who are constantly inspiring us in new ways by staying ahead of our constantly evolving industry.
“We are thrilled by our customers’ response and participation, and are eager to see who comes out on top.
“Whether you’re on the terminal, carrier or shipper-side, everyone will be able to take away valuable lessons from his presentation. We can’t wait to have Captain Phillips share his knowledge and expertise with our attendees.”
