GRM Trainer Refresher Seminar – Gothenburg, 12 September 2023

You are cordially invited to the GRM Trainer Refresher Seminar 2023 in Gothenburg, Sweden. Main topics for the Refresher Seminar 2023 are:

  • The new Organizational Culture module
  • Discussion on existing learning material
  • New film clips
  • Case studies, with a special focus on the Jolly Nero case
  • Facilitation, tips and tricks

We are happy to have Capt Antonio Di Lieto joining us via online link at the seminar. Capt Di Lieto is the author of the book “Diligent Pilotage – Lessons Learned from the Jolly Nero”, published in 2022. The Jolly Nero accident in the port of Genoa in 2013 cost the lives of nine people and resulted in the criminal conviction of the Jolly Nero’s Captain, Chief Engineer and First Officer. With regard to the criminal conviction, Capt Di Lieto says in his book: “All this has important implications for BRM: cooperation is not an option, but a legal obligation for the master, the pilot and all those operating on the bridge.”
No doubt, we will have a most interesting discussion with Capt Di Lieto on September 12th.

Attendance at a refresher seminar will be required at least every third year for GRM Trainers in order to maintain the validity of the GRM Trainer Certificate and access to the Academy WebPortal. This requirement will ensure that GRM Trainers are kept up to date about the current course material and latest facilitation techniques. Furthermore, the seminars will help us develop the course in the right direction and, ultimately, ensure best possible results for our learners.

The intention is to offer the Refresher Seminar 2023 in three geographical locations during 2023 – in Manila (carried out on March 8th), Gothenburg and Singapore.

Date and time: Tuesday, 12 September 2023, 09:00 – 17:00.
