Largest Company-Run Seminar Ever!
09/11/2016
The tradition of Company-Run Seminars that began at Armona 3 years ago as a requirement in TMSA Element 3A has exceeded all expectations! Our 6th Company-Run Seminar that took place at the Armona Office on the 8th and 9th of November was the largest and most successful yet with the participation of 25 Senior Officers, 14 Junior Officers, and many crew members and cadets.
 
Following the speeches of our CEO Lorenz Weinstabl and our CTO Semih Falay (The picture shows Captain Semih Falay addressing his welcome to the audience) the program proceeded with insightful presentations by the shore personnel and keynote speakers regarding a wide range of subjects such as the psychology of seafarers, cyber attacks, media-response, legal know-how at sea, and learning from incidents that have occured in the sector.
 
The seminar was not only educational but it also provided an opportunity for the shore personnel to become well acquainted with the company sea farers through a lunch at a famous kebab restaurant in Ortaköy, a night of rakı-balık (rakı-fish) in Beşiktaş, and a pizza party/cocktail hosted in the office.
 
Thank you to everyone who joined!

25/10/2016
Eastport Maritime’s invitation to a Porsche Leipzig experience was spectacular. Starting with the visit of a production site that incorporated the state of art of any automotive production facility. But the second part of the program consisted of driving anything that Porsche was producing, all models and all variants, on racing tracks and off road in the fields of Saxony.
 
The instructor explained he experiences grown up men becoming young boys again when it comes to driving fast cars. That might be exciting to experience, but with years of steering his ship management to success our CEO Lorenz Weinstabl could not conceal his affinity to aspects of Safety.
