Captains and Crew Facebook page from Monaco Yacht Show

Possibly one of the biggest honours I will get for my career in marketing within the superyacht industry happened last week…

I received a call from the Monaco Yacht Show asking me to meet with them and discuss social media, specifically Captains and crew social media. After a fantastic meeting at the HQ in Monaco I am now officially developing the MYS Captains and Crew Lounge social media accounts, and I couldn’t be more thrilled!

The team at MYS really understand that social media is one of the best ways of engaging with crew and I look forward to posting information on events, seminars and workshops, letting the crew know what is on offer for them at the worlds most prestigious yacht show and also getting real-time feedback on what the Captains and crew want themselves during a very busy show.

Please show your support and like the brand new Facebook page…
