“Convergence” 2017: Turning individuals into one team
Ferretti Group presents “Convergence” 2017: the top professional training event for captains and chief engineers working aboard the Group’s yachts.
March 14th to 17th are the dates set aside for this year’s “Convergence”, the traditional meeting with professional training and refresher courses that Ferretti Group offers captains and chief engineers working on the yachts in its fleet.
“Convergence” 2017 will be held in the international setting of Ljubljana in Slovenia, with an intense schedule of classroom sessions and outdoor events, bringing together tens of professionals from all over the world and involving them in refresher courses and group challenges designed to explore new technical developments as well as the host city.
The seminars will be held by the main sponsors of “Convergence” 2017, the Group’s consolidated technology partners, including Cummins, Cummins Onan, MAN, Pantaenius, Rina, Seakeeper and Willis Towers Watson.
The intention of the four day event is to promote direct discussion of topics linked to the management of Ferretti Group’s yachts and craft as well as issues related to the prevention and management of risks and safety on board.
On day one, the Top Management and Engineering Team will illustrate the new projects presented between the end of 2016 and the beginning of 2017, currently being built at the Group’s yards, and the most innovative technologies fitted on board. They will also bring the audience up to date as regards the major refitting of large yachts currently underway at the modernised Super Yacht Yard at Ancona, in addition to the new maxi yachts and craft under construction for the CRN, Riva Superyachts Division, Pershing and Custom Line brands.
The training activities will be completed by exciting team challenges involving the attendees. The purpose: to boost the feeling of belonging to a group and the enjoyment of being together, once again refreshing the Group’s commitment towards these top sea-faring professionals who play a vital role in assuring owners a serene and unforgettable experience at sea.
“We are happy to be once again welcoming our captains and chief engineers to take part in the various meetings focusing on the latest innovations fitted on the yachts built by the Group”, commented Alberto Galassi, Ferretti Group CEO.
“Convergence is a vital element in our plans for promoting customer loyalty and is part of a broader strategy designed to continually enhance the know-how of the professionals who work for us all around the world.
Captains and chief engineers play a central role in assuring the success of Ferretti Group, which has always acknowledged the importance of providing excellent customer care and after sales service.
This is why we decided to resume Convergence two years ago, a strategic part of our business plan and a pivotal event in the packed calendar of training sessions that the Group has been organising for quite some time across Europe, Asia and America.”
