CTS returns as prime sponsor of UK Chamber of Shipping Summer Lunch

UK Chamber of Shipping Lunch 2016


Clyde Training Solutions are proud to return as Gold sponsors of the annual UK Chamber of Shipping Scottish Summer lunch.

The event, now in its second year is being held again at the magnificent Mansfield Traquair in Edinburgh on Wednesday 14th June, and will once again bring together members of the shipping industry, as well as Scottish Parliament Ministers, to discuss prominent industry issues in a relaxed setting.

Humza Yousaf, Scottish Government Minister for Transport and Islands, will once again be a key-note speaker at the event, a platform he used last year to reconfirm the government’s commitment to the shipping industry.

Commenting on Clyde Training Solution’s continuing sponsorship, Colin McMurray, Director of Clyde Training Solutions, stated: 

“We are delighted to again be headline sponsors of the UK Chamber of Shipping Summer lunch, which I think everyone who attended last year would agree was a tremendous event.  It is also a significant milestone for Clyde Training Solutions as it marks a year since the launch of our website at the inaugural summer lunch, and what a fantastic year it has been. 

“Using over a decade of experience in maritime training we have built a world-class training centre from the ground-up which now hosts thousands of delegates each year, numbers which we expect to grow significantly in 2017 with the recently acquired OPITO certification, meaning that alongside our existing MCA certification we can now cater for both Marine and Offshore personnel safety training.”

Guy Platten, CEO of the UK Chamber, echoed Colin’s thoughts by adding:

“We are hugely grateful for Clyde Training Solutions’ support.  The event is about showing off the industry’s skills and talents, and so partnering with such a forward thinking organisation committed to developing Scotland’s maritime skill base is a natural fit.”
