Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers Calls for Teamwork

Thursday, September 25, 2003
People in shipping must operate as members of a team, according to Anthony Cooke, president of the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers, speaking at the Institute's annual prize-giving lunch held at Draper's Hall, London on September 25, 2003. "They must know, not only what they are doing, but also what the other parts of the transport chain are doing. They must be flexible and innovative and they must trust and be trusted. This is what the ICS is for: to give the people and companies in shipping a firm foundation of relevant education and professionalism, to enable them to succeed in this fiercely competitive industry." 2003 was another successful year in the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers exams. 1,092 candidates sat 2,725 papers in this year's examinations, held at 80 centres worldwide, illustrating the international reach of the Institute. Many of the highest scoring candidates were at the prize-giving lunch to be congratulated by and receive their awards from Mr Timothy Harris, chairman of James Fisher & Sons Plc and Deputy Chairman of Clarkson Plc. Among the twenty-seven prize winners this year were: Mrs B L Steel, Panafco Maritime, Durban, Armac award for the highest marks in Foundation Diploma in Shipping - Port Agency; Mr N D Loc, Oceanway, Ho Chi Minh City, Gordon Baldwin dissertation award for the best dissertation successfully submitted as an application for membership; Mr J G Radmore, Cargill, London, Baltic Exchange award - Shipping Business; J M le Feuvre, Clarksons, London, Baltic Exchange award - Dry Cargo Chartering; Mr A R F Cooper, Carter Holt Harvey, Auckland, Clarksons award for the highest marks in Foundation Diploma in Shipping - Dry Cargo Chartering; Miss M Mwakundia, Maritime & Management Institute of East Africa, Mombasa, Cory Brothers award for the highest marks in Foundation Diploma in Shipping - Liner Trades; Capt M M Baig, Tanker Pacific Management, Singapore, Lloyd's List award for the highest marks overall in completing the qualifying examinations; and Mr G Ogden, Gearbulk (UK), Surrey, Lloyd's Register-Fairplay award for the highest marks in ship operations & management in the qualifying examinations. Alan Phillips, Director General of the ICS, said, "The global economy depends on efficient shipping, and efficient shipping depends on people who know their business. The Institute is proud to provide shipping with the standards and training it requires. The Institute has considerable experience of blending its syllabus with the more specific needs of companies' bespoke education and training programmes. The company and the students benefit from a proven education programme and the students may also gain significant exemptions from some parts of our exams. This is the first year of a new syllabus, updated to keep it relevant to our fast-changing industry. Congratulations to all the successful candidates, who have achieved a really worthwhile, modern and relevant qualification. We look forward to welcoming them all as members of the institute, so that they can contribute to future standards for shipping." The Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers was established in 1911 to represent professionals working in the shipping industry. Today, it has over 3,500 members in more than 60 countries.
