The GMI held a very successful one-day course on Saturday 16th June 2012 at the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich. It explored both a historical look at piracy, its development and the challenges faced by the maritime industry today. We were delighted to be able to draw on the knowledge from our very own Professor in Maritime Security, Chris Bellamy along with Dr Christian Bueger from Cardiff University, Peter Cook from SAMI and Neil Smith from Lloyds Market Association. This team delivered their seminar-style course to an impressive 18 delegates who were all presented with a certificate of attendance at the end of the day. We would like to thank everyone involved for making this day a success. Further details will now be posted about our next short course in July!
