“I’ve put a huge focus on contributing to a bigger picture over the last 12 months. My nomination and shortlisting, I suppose, is a result of this,” Taylor said. “There are many colleagues and collaborating organizations that have allowed this to happen, and I thank them all in being part of my journey. The International Marine Networking event has been a solid foundation which many of my ventures have originated from, I’m so glad others benefit from it equally.”

Soundings Trade Only will co-sponsor the International Marine Networking event series with U.K.-based Marine Industry News.
