In today’s episode, join Ally Cedeno as she dives into the exciting preview of the Women Offshore Conference 2023 ‘A World of Opportunity’ at Texas A&M in Galveston. Attendees are promised two invigorating days of motivation, insights, and priceless networking.

Day 1 Captain Sherri Hickman of Houston Pilots is our trailblazing opening keynote speaker. She’s a stalwart in the maritime arena and a beacon for many aspiring maritime professionals. Attendees can look forward to a journey that uncovers opportunities while shedding light on persisting challenges.

Following this powerful start, we step into an interactive workshop led by Erica D’Eramo of Two Piers Consulting. Titled “How to get your voice heard,” this session promises attendees tools and techniques to navigate diverse settings and ensure they aren’t just heard but also understood.

After a hearty networking lunch, attendees can choose between two captivating sessions. Maritime safety enthusiasts are in for a treat with a special session led by Admiral Wayne Arguin and Mayte Medina. From domestic safety strategies to the importance of global collaboration, it promises a deep dive into a safer maritime future. Day 1 concludes with a Happy Hour/Networking session – a relaxed space to reflect, connect, and toast to the day’s experiences.

Day 2, Claudia Cimini, our esteemed morning keynote speaker, will take attendees on a journey through the maritime world, blending challenges and immense possibilities. Later, attendees get to pick between two thought-provoking sessions. As we head towards the close, the Awards Luncheon celebrates industry leaders and innovators, followed by an inspiring session with Captain Roshenda Josephs. Her story promises to leave attendees with inspiration and actionable insights. The day wraps with a local tour, offering attendees a moment to relax and soak in the surroundings.

If you’re yet to register, now’s the time. This is a maritime event that promises to leave an imprint! Thanks to our sponsors Transocean, Chevron, and Valaris.
