INTERTANKO Advanced Media Course - Rotterdam

Tanker casualties draw the attention of the global news media. Pollution and damage to wildlife and the environment feature prominently in the news. Film footage of a tanker in trouble makes for dramatic television. Pictures of oily seabirds create an atmosphere that may be difficult to manage and that will be very hostile to the shipowner.

Charterers are now requiring owners to be able to respond to the media. In the United States tanker owners are required by law to provide certain public information following an incident.

* To safeguard their company’s reputation and relationships with charterers and regulators shipowners must be able to demonstrate a media response capability world-wide.

* That response must be immediate, effective and professional.

* It is vital that the company is able to exert a high level of control over the news agenda.

The pressure of 'live' interviews in an incident context can be unnerving and intimidating. It is crucial that individuals expected to undertake media responsibilities be familiar with the workings of the media and with the studio interview process.

Further, it is important to ensure that there is a depth of training within any organisation in order to provide support and continuity in an ongoing crisis.

INTERTANKO has arranged two days of Media Training in connection with the Tanker Event in Rotterdam 14-17 April 2002.

* Monday 15 April 2002 – 08.30-16.00
* Wednesday 17 April 2002 – 08.30-16.00
Delegate fee: USD 1600
