DEFINING OUR LANDSCAPE THROUGH DATA
To create change, we must first intimately understand and define our landscape. Meaningful change must be relevant, monitorable and measurable. Identifying the unique challenges, risks and opportunities through quantitive and qualitative research enables all LEGASEA programs to be data-backed and led, dynamic and high impact.
Reporting & Monitoring
OUR COMMITMENT TO A ROBUST TALENT PIPELINE
The LEGASEA mentorship platform creates the space for yachting professionals to connect and share their knowledge while cultivating the next generation of industry leaders, ashore and at sea. The vision is to create a robust talent pipeline focusing on retention and progression and ensure talent is flowing from sea to shore. Designed to incorporate a circular knowledge economy, it provides the opportunity for industry leaders to share thoughts and insights across multiple sectors.
AMPLIFYING DIVERSITY OF THOUGHT, BACKGROUNDS AND EXPERIENCE
Releasing our collective intelligence calls us to ensure diverse backgrounds, experiences, viewpoints are brought to any conversation. No stakeholder benefits from an echo chamber. To ensure our events, press and conversations are relevant, meaningful and high impact, the Speaker Bank ensures events and press bodies have access to diverse voices.

COLLABORATIONS THAT CREATE IMPACT
It's no surprise that to create meaningful, long term change, we must release the collective intelligence of a diverse group of industry stakeholders by cultivating inclusive environments. Program Partnerships enable empowered organisations and individuals to participate in relevant industry wide action. We believe we are better together, and by cultivating long term relationships across all sector’s, we will leave a lasting LEGASEA.
“We were thrilled to welcome She of the Sea co-founders Jenny Matthews and Natasha Ambrose to REV Ocean to learn about their experience in the yachting industry and what drove them to start this initiative. It was an opportunity for us to take a critical look at our operations and our ambitions. The open dialogue about the challenges we may face in ensuring diversity in recruitment in the maritime sector, and tips on how we can all contribute to solutions, will help us continue our engagement for and commitment to diversity"
