A full house for Swedish Club’s first face-to-face Marine Insurance Course in three years

Last week The Swedish Club bid farewell to delegates attending its first face-to-face Marine Insurance Course (MIC) since the pandemic. Nearly 40 participants from 13 countries joined the Club to understand more about marine insurance and to apply that learning to their everyday working lives.

The course was carefully structured to appeal to all levels of professionals, and the Swedish Club team welcomed brokers, claims handlers, DPAs (Designated Person Ashore) and Vice Presidents. China was particularly well represented, and the Club’s five regional offices delivered participants from around the globe.

“We all know empirically that shipping is a global industry, but it is only when we are able to meet our business partners in person that we truly recognise the inclusive nature of our business,” said Tilmann Kauffeld, Head of Claims, Marine. “The Club has worked hard over the last three years to deliver an online offering and continue providing service to members digitally. Our members have welcomed that support. However, the success of the 2023 MIC demonstrates that there is nothing quite like sharing knowledge and building relationships face-to-face.”

Tilmann Kauffeld, Head of Claims MarineDuring the first half of the week, top speakers from The Swedish Club introduced the world of marine insurance and explored the various elements in detail. This was followed by in-depth workshop sessions, allowing delegates to explore specific interest topics with other participants and breakout sessions encouraging detailed discussion.

The course benefitted not only participants but also the wider shipping community. Members were able to take part free of charge, whilst non-member fees will be donated to seafarer charities. 

With the successful conclusion of the MIC, The Swedish Club reaffirms its dedication to providing exceptional educational opportunities and fostering meaningful connections within the maritime industry.
