UNITING THE YOUTH OF TODAY WITH THE MARITIME OPPORTUNITIES OF TOMORROW
Director of Communications
BILL LINES, Navigate PR
Leaving university, I wanted a job where I could use my writing skills. A position as a trainee journalist covering the shipping sector came up and I took it without really knowing much about the industry. This gave me a good overview of the sector and my next job was as communications manager at the Baltic Exchange.
I have a BA Hons in German and European Studies from the University of Manchester. We organise PR, marketing and conference organising and look after a range of international clients from across the shipping sector and I handle a range of media-related issues. I regularly give presentations, run training courses and set up high level conferences.
I set up Navigate in 2003 and have greatly enjoyed growing the business. From two clients and a shared desk in Soho, the organisation has grown rapidly as companies turn to us to help get their message across effectively.
The maritime industry offers a huge range of prospects. Whether you’re a creative, technical or commercially-minded person there’s probably an interesting job in the industry for you.
