The Young Executives Session – which has become an integral part of “Maritime Cyprus” - took place for the sixth time. The young executives (under 40 years of age) were presented with the opportunity to discuss and exchange views and perspectives on the subject “Challenging the Business Model”.
This year, the Young Executives Session was organised by YoungShip Cyprus and the discussion was mainly focused on the use of new technologies, rethinking and redesigning the business process and the challenge of the traditional business model.
The speakers, through their personal professional experience, stressed the importance of start up, innovation and employment of new key technologies, ensuring at the same time eco-friendly and sustainable growth. It was noted that not only is legislation changing to promote such technologies, but also clients’ preferences as they are the ones who support and promote these changes. It was further highlighted that young professionals today are the ones who need to make the change happen.
The moderator of the discussion was Dyveke Meland, Member of YoungShip International and Chairman of the Board of YoungShip Bergen. The group of panellists consisted of Constantine Komodromos, Co-Founder and CEO of VesselBot, Sotiris Kambanellas, Vice President of YoungShip Cyprus and Tor Ostervolt, CEO of ECOSubsea.
