2021 End of Year Message from CEO, Rachel Crawford
10th December 2021
As 2021 draws to a close, I want to acknowledge that although the past 2 years have been challenging in many ways, they have shown us how strong we are as an organisation – even in the toughest of times.
We can take pride in the fact that we were one of the first networks to take the step back to meeting face-to-face by holding our 2021 Annual Summit in Croatia. It was wonderful to feel the energy of being together in one room again!
Plus, as our new Meeting Hub enables us to meet virtually, we have shown that we are an organisation that is both robust and exceptionally flexible in the face of change. Have you seen our new video? Watch it here.
DID YOU KNOW PCN HAS REPRESENTATION IN 115+ COUNTRIES?
It is important to always look to expand your network, even in countries you don't currently have business with, as many opportunities can be unplanned! Through networking with PCN Members, you can discover new opportunities and secure new business. We're proud to say that we have continued to grow and this year and welcomed over 20 new Members!
I can't wait to see everyone at our 11th Annual Summit which will be held from 27-29 November 2022 in Dubai. To see our exciting schedule and to register your place, please click here (requires log-in). There is a 10% Early Bird Discount for all new registrations if paid before 17 June 2022.
Our next Virtual Event (free of charge) takes place from 4-6 April 2022 – click here for details.
I would like to acknowledge our hard-working PCN Head Office team for all their contributions during 2021 - Judith (Administration Director), George (Graphic Designer), Wendy (Administration Manager) and Sam (Recruitment Director). I am taking them to see Cirque de Soleil in London in January!
In closing, I want to thank you all for the commitment you've shown PCN over the past few years. Our combined efforts in providing you with a progressive networking platform and you working together on so many shipments is what makes us successful as an organisation.
As Dave Roosen of R&B Global said; "It’s always good to see pro-active members in the many project logistics groups floating around on the seas in our industry these days!"
I hope that when you’re celebrating the holidays with friends and family, you look back on the year with the same sense of accomplishment that we all should feel.
