The Seafarers Awards are highly anticipated internationally and we are excited to announce that this year the event will be hosted by Sharanjit Leyl and professionally delivered Nova Dynamic Media. Sharanjit will be joined by Robert Walker (COO of ASP Group and MtS Chairman Singapore), Toh Soon Kok (MtS Singapore chaplain), Rashpal Bhatti (Vice President Maritime & Supply Chain Excellence, BHP), Nick Potter (Head of Shipping and Maritime, Shell in Asia and the Middle East) and Esben Poulsson (Chairman, ICS and Vice President, MtS).
