Beware of the shipping bug! It’s the passion you get once you have entered the maritime industry that makes you never want to leave.
The people within the industry makes things happen, and they are always fun to listen to; opinionated people with a lot of knowledge. They are maritime professionals, have strong characters and usually an interesting background. Their jobs are very cool, and they do things the rest of us hardly can imagine.
Listen to them in the Shipping Podcast and get fascinated, discover the shipping industry, or get some new insights about an industry in the middle of a new paradigm.
“I am your host, and my name is Lena Gothberg.”
If you have listened to the Shipping Podcast, you know my voice, and you know that I have taken it upon myself to get the shipping industry more visible as I became tired of always have to explain to everyone I meet what the shipping industry is. Everybody is saying that we should raise public awareness, but no one does anything about it. In July 2015, I started this podcast, which now has become a success.
I have been working within the industry for more than 25 years, and I always meet interesting people with a story to tell. Inspired by my shipping friends and my new friends in the digital space, I decided to spread the word about the coolest industry on the planet and help to raise the profile, all by myself. The shipping industry is a peoples’ business, maybe that’s why I like it so much. Finally, you can listen to the maritime industry’s voices, talk about their passion for their jobs, what they think about the future, and what they think about our industry’s current state.
I use social media to spread the Shipping Podcast word; try Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. If you want to get in contact with me, I am @lenagothberg on most platforms.
Thank you for listening, spreading the word about the #shippingpodcast. Together, we will reach my goal; to get a podcast about shipping trending on Apple Podcast and make people stumble into our beloved industry! Kudos if you share the Shipping Podcast on your own social media channels!
