Karin Orsel is a 45 year old Shipowner, Ship manager & Entrepreneur who thinks it is very important to engage and get involved in the international trade associations within the shipping industry – how else can you influence upcoming regulations, gain knowledge and have a heads-up?
Listen to how she took a leap of faith 1994, at the age of 23, started a shipping company with one client, 6 vessels and 50 crewmembers and how that has grown into a substantial ship owning and ship management company, MF Shipping Group, today employing more than 1,000 crewmembers on 52 vessels.
This episode of the Shipping Podcast covers a lot, 90 % of everything within shipping I would say; why is a ship called “she”? What is the responsibility of the Godmother of the ship? How Shipowners does chose which flag to fly? SECA, how do that effect the industry? Unmanned ships? Are there only 0.6 % female seafarers in the global merchant fleet?!
Well, you have to listen, this is a real titbit, either you are a mariner or a non-mariner, promise you!
