167 Shipping Podcast – Are all the stars aligned now – is there a new time for the maritime industry?
Captain John Konrad is THE influencer in the maritime industry. He started the gCaptain, which is currently the largest media outlet in the maritime domain.
John is equally interested in changing the narrative for the maritime industry as I am. We agree that we need to work together to create sustainable marketing for and about the maritime industry.
No one speaks about Über in the Silicon Valley anymore, they talk about Flexport, and they talk about the maritime industry.”
John is a big fan of Greta Thunberg; she says things people don’t want to hear. But, that is what we also need to do; talk about the good and the bad in our industry. If we don’t acknowledge the problems we have as an industry, then we cannot solve them – and become better.
We discuss so many things in this episode, I learned a lot, and John gave some real food for thoughts.

Thank you for listening.

Such a great podcast. You two dove into things that needed to be verbalized. I’d love to hear a follow-up with you both. Keep being great and thank you for everything you do!
