MOST people go on holiday at the end of July/beginning of August in Europe, but not Stephen Alexander. The Chief Operating Officer of IMPA and a good friend of us here at ShipServ, is venturing out into the deep blue on a five day journey on the Henrietta Kosan to experience first hand the thrill of the ocean wave.
So what made him find his sea legs:
“It’s simple really, I’ve always liked getting my hands dirty to start with; I mean if you want to know what a business is really about you’ve got to right?! I’ve visited factories and ports; I’ve been on-board ship before and visited the engine rooms and deck and I’ve always enjoyed understanding how things happen.” he said.
“I also feel that I’ve been made to feel very welcome in this industry, I’ve made friends all over the world and I’ve been given many special experiences to put in the memory book and so if I want to do the best I can in my job taking this trip is part of the process of understanding more.”
Stephen will be blogging throughout his trip so check out his blog here
