Networking Across the Pond

1_NetworkingBen Taylor

An online event series founded in England and aimed at connecting marine industry pros who have been sidelined by canceled events and travel restrictions will expand its audience next month to U.S. participants.

The International Marine Networking series is hosted and organized by Ben Taylor, also the host of “Flagship Insight” on International Yachting Radio. Based in Manchester, U.K., Taylor is also the host of British Marine Digital Networking and the founder of Taylor Digital.

“This event provides opportunities for all that get involved: it’s simple, it’s accessible and it connects people,” said Taylor in a statement. “Person-to-person relationships will always drive business, especially in the marine industry. This is an opportunity to build those relationships.”


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

“With little to no travel and in-person events, Ben’s networking event series will be a fun and interesting way for marine industry professionals to connect, share ideas, expertise and develop business relationships on an international platform,” said Jeff Moser, editor-in-chief of Soundings Trade Only. “I expect that the sessions will be beneficial in providing new opportunities, relationships and perspectives.”
