Tips, Tricks and Hacks for delivering more engaging and persuasive presentations

Tips, Tricks and Hacks for delivering more engaging and persuasive presentations

Are you also tired of boring and endless PowerPoint presentations with no audience interaction? So were MDC and it showed up that many of our members felt the same. We heard that Chris Rycroft, a specialist presentation coach, knew what to do. With many exercises we all got hands-on experience using some serious and unusual tricks on how to present with impact. 

Mixed Reality project concludes: huge potential but still some challenges to overcome

In a project funded by the Danish Maritime Fund, the IT company Virsabi has just concluded the work on exploring potential using Mixed Reality technologies in maritime operations. MAN Energy Solutions and Maersk Supply Service alongside with MDC partnered in the project which produced 2 prototypes aiming at demonstrating concrete use cases for the technology.

The final report is now available here along with a video, found here, from the final conference explaining the results. A number of challenges with the technology was identifies, for example connectivity onboard (both onboard the ship and to shore), problems with tracking as well as outdoor use, where the current equipment makes it hard to see the presented holograms.

The potential is however huge.  especially if the MR system is integrated with other operational systems, e.g. for displaying live data, completing forms and checklists and store in the corporate system etc. A number of specific scenarios was recommended to explore for further work:

  • Overhauling or maintenance of critical/complicated components

  • Troubleshooting a breakdown - connect to remote expert with use of digital markers

  • Onboard documentation of procedures such a inspection rounds, familiarization and crew-handover

Involvement of crews early in a MR project is critical for the success. The involved crew where very enthusiastic and gave extremely valuable inputs, ensuring a successful project - and in the future this will be the key to unlocking the potential of the technology in a maritime context.

80 meetings in 3 hours - is that possible?

80 meetings in 3 hours - is that possible?

- Yes, and it wasn't a first. The 6th edition of the closed and exclusive event in the name of creating strategic partnerships and business relations, 'Nordic Smart and Green Shipping' took place in the beautiful surroundings in the residence of the Finnish Ambassador in Denmark. Business Finland and MDC gathered 9 Danish Shipowners and 11 Finnish Suppliers for a total of 80 meetings!

Udfordringen

Det Blå Danmark er en af Danmarks styrkepositioner og landets største eksporterhverv. Vi er 100.000 kollegaer i erhvervet, hvoraf 40.000 er faglærte. Men når kun knap 20 % af en ungdomsårgang søger ind på en erhvervsuddannelser, har vi en udfordring. Vi har behov for flere dygtige elever på erhvervsuddannelserne, flere maritime kompetencer i uddannelserne samt flere praktikpladser i de maritime virksomheder.

Din opgave bliver at lede et projekt med partnere fra brancheorganisationen Danske Maritime, SIMAC, KEA - Københavns Erhvervsakademi, TEC Uddannelser og Next Uddannelse København. Sammen skaber vi nye praktikpladser, tiltrækker flere elever til uddannelserne samt afholder uddannelsesforløb, hvor eleverne opbygger maritime kompetencer.

Din fornemste opgave vil være at sikre fremdrift, så projektets partnere når alle de opsatte mål. Ligeledes skal du sikre behørig dokumentation og afrapportering på projektaktiviteterne til EU og Region Hovedstaden.

Emnerne var mange, og deltagerne kom vidt omkring, da MDC og World Careers havde arrangeret debat under overskriften ”More Women at Sea”. 12 paneldeltagere og 40 tilhører var sat i stævne for at diskutere tre overordnede emner, og hvad der fra branchens- og erhvervets side kan gøres for at støtte op omkring flere kvinder til søs. Emnerne dækkede et livsbaseret karriereforløb med fokus på ”Hvordan tiltrækkes kvinder til en karriere til søs”, ”Hvordan fastholdes kvinder under uddannelse”, og endeligt ”Fastholdelse til søs, eller karriere til lands”.
