Staff Strategy and Development Day – June 2019
We recently took part in a training session at the Nick Nairn Cookery School in Port of Menteith. Team members from Poland and Latvia joined our Glasgow head office team for the event. This training event is just part of our wider approach to staff development and our commitment to continuous quality improvement.
The more formal part of the day focused our attention to Incident Response Training. Darren Roberts from UK Bureau Veritas ran a successful workshop which involved several role play scenarios which got everyone thinking hard and working together as a team.
We learned valuable lessons about how to manage incidents to our best abilities and how to ensure the best outcomes for our seafarers, their families and our shipping clients. Regular training and practice will ensure we are efficient and work together as a team to achieve the best results for everyone. Huge thanks to Darren for delivering such an engaging training exercise.
For the remainder of the day we were treated to a cookery demonstration by TV chef and ex seafarer- Nick Nairn. We were also treated to a few tales from Nicks’ days at sea before donning our aprons and taking on the challenge of creating a spicy Thai green curry.
We then opened wine and started cooking! We all managed to successfully create a delicious dish and three of our team members were awarded a prize for their outstanding efforts in the kitchen. For the rest of the team it was delicious passionfruit mousses all round and another glass of wine.
All in all, a great team day out. High fives all round!
