Events at this year’s London International Shipping Week are set to extend far beyond maritime waters – in fact they’re heading into space!
LISW23 Diamond Sponsor Inmarsat has announced the guest speaker at its Connected Future conference will be the cosmonaut Helen Sharman CMG, OBE.
Chemist Helen will be sharing the amazing story of how she became the first British person to go into space aboard the Russian Soyuz TM-12 spacecraft for an eight-day mission to the Mir space station for Project Juno.
Inmarsat’s Connected Future conference, in partnership with Smart Maritime Network, takes place at its Maritime HQ (EC1Y 1AX) on Tuesday 12th September from 1pm to 5.30pm. For details click here.
Meanwhile, over at the Churchill War Rooms, Formula 1 racing cars will be the focus when Neil Martin, former head of strategy at McLaren and Ferrari, enthrals guests at the ShipMoney LISW23 event at 11am on September 12th .
Neil’s techniques played a significant role in facilitating Red Bull’s first historic win at the 2009 Chinese Grand Prix with a clever strategy call. Today over half of the Formula 1 grid uses software that has been developed by data scientist Neil or derived from his applications. For details click here.
