View From The Desk – November

  • Posted January 30, 2023

Welcome to the latest SYR View From The Desk

What a busy few months we’ve had; Cannes, SIBS, Monaco and METS took us all out of the office for a few days and we were delighted to host our inaugural Superyacht Supper Club event with our sponsors MIMO Connect and Heirlooms.

This was a great opportunity to meet with key influencers within the Superyacht industry. The event was a resounding success and we certainly managed to see value across such topics as; client/supplier collaborations, recruitment trends, career advice and general brainstorming in a relaxed informal environment.

We would highly encourage anyone who didn’t manage to attend our first event to get your name down early for what will be a regular and valued industry event moving forward. The December event is now sold out but by following us on eventbrite you will automatically be notified when the next date is organised.

If you are interested in becoming a Superyacht Supper Club sponsor or host please get in touch.

As we come to the end of the calendar year, we’re continuing to experience strong enquiries on new roles across all areas. Within executive search we are noticing that many employers are looking to bolster their top teams through new C-Suite appointments. This is most prevalent in the yacht building sector.

Alongside recruitment projects, I’m also hard at work on developing a number of other initiatives that will further promote skills development and also address the massive elephant in the room right now, diversity!
