Seahorse Club Summer BBQ

Last Wednesday night saw a break in the 24/7 rain just long enough for the Seahorse Club of maritime media folk to hold its Summer BBQ at the Doggetts Coat and Badge pub by Blackfriars Bridge, London. The event was sponsored by DP World who brought along staff from Southampton to meet the press. I was invited along by Mark Warner of ShipServe. Mark is a proper internetista and within half a pint showed me how to use Twitter. Without him I would be just another Angry Bird – or am I mixing apps?

We arrived with Neville Smith of Mariner Communications. Immediately we bumped into Emma Murray of Meantime Communications and co-founder, Julian Pryke. To this list of ex-Informa colleagues I could add James Brewer and a few others. Current Lloyd’s Listers included liner specialist Janet Porter. No shipping event is complete without John Faraclas, of AllAboutShipping. New to me was Miriam Fahey of Fairplay, and I notice Fairplay has a widget to push shipping news onto blogs.
