Director’s Statement – “OceanWise goes from strength to strength”
“OceanWise goes from strength to strength with record growth in 2017/18 with our products and services proving very popular in the Government, Port and Offshore sectors. This growth would certainly have been more challenging to achieve if it were not for the role that you play in generating business.
With this in mind we have re-vamped our Licensed Partner process so some of you would have recently signed a more comprehensive agreement with us. Those of you with agreements that date from before 2017 will be asked to complete a new style agreement when your current arrangement expires. The reason for the change is to better enable us to support all partners proactively distribute or add value to our products and services.
This past financial year, we have invested in new sales and marketing systems, processes and personnel which will enable us to better support you, whether that be in providing advice, guidance, training or in identifying opportunities and turning those opportunities into successful and profitable projects, contracts or licences.
We have two new members of staff this year which includes Katie Eades who joined us in February as our Marketing Co-ordinator. Katie has a wealth of experience in account management, sales and marketing and will now be your main point of contact for anything relating to marketing, promotion and events.
I do hope that you enjoy reading this newsletter. Myself and the whole OceanWise team would like to thank you for your continued support and commitment and we look forward to building on our successes and working closer with you all in the coming years.
John Pepper, Marketing Director
