Currently I receive quite a few private emails per week from readers of the blog asking me questions and seeking advice on any matter of subjects.
I really enjoy receiving the emails and most of the time I respond fairly quickly. Hopefully the replies have helped a few people along the way.
With this in mind I just wanted to reassure anyone sending me a private email on firstname.lastname@example.org that these emails are indeed private and i respect the confidentiality of the sender.
If you answer via my blog that is a different matter and the question automaticaly gets published (which is great because it allows eveyone to learn and contribute to to a discussion)
So whether you are a current shipbroker, shipowner, charterer, Senior manager, or someone looking to get into the industry, keep that in mind. Private means private.
BTW - for me this is good business practice. It helps me build the VS brand. In 10 years time you never know there could be hundreds of successful shipping people out there who once asked my advice and got some good 'confidential' feedback.
When I am old an grey - thats gotta be good for a free lunch now and then!
