CEO MONTHLY / ISSUE 8 2020 9 Top Tier Training From Tapiit have the option to either use one of the desks in the office, or work from home with the team meeting once a week and have virtual meetings every day. Productivity is at an all-time high, and people are excited to work. With productivity levels booming and showing no signs of slowing down, Tapiit has further expanded their business by launching two new and exciting projects: Tapiit Live and Flexiilife. Initially formed as a live stream training company, Tapiit Live focuses on delivering maritime modules to seafarers onboard vessels, whilst at home and management personnel in the office. Having the ability to attend classroom style of training without the burden of additional costs, such as travel and accommodation, is a huge benefit for any ship owner/ manager looking to reduce their training budgets. Live interactive streaming will slowly, but surely, become the normal vehicle and leading the way will Tapiit Live with its established in-house studios. As for Flexiilife, the new company was established to provide individuals, families and crews onboard vessels access to a comprehensive platform of live streaming channels that focuses on the mind, body and soul. With a diverse range of classes from yoga, fitness, exercise to wellness which covers topics including healthy eating classes and even nutritional courses. The mindful courses offer an array of subjects such as meditation, stress management, how to deal with interview stress and relaxation for driving tests. In addition, Flexiilife’s learning channels cover a vast array of topics from children’s academic subjects to general interest. All of these classes are now live and interactive, as well as streamed 24 hours a day on multiple devices all for just one subscription fee. With both these platforms in full effect, the Tapiit team have been able to successfully implement these services with the support and guidance from CEO Monthly’s CEO of the Year, 2020 – The United Kingdom. The mark of a good leader over a good boss is understanding how to empower and uplift staff around them to do an excellent job. Mr Turner is definitely the former, understanding that his staff are integral to the continued success of Tapiit. The newest and best vessel may have all the latest specifications, but without the right staff it will fail. In every single one of his roles, Mr Turner has always developed and surrounded himself with the best teams possible, and success quickly followed suite. Every business owner, manager, or CEO must understand what Mr Turner has lived his life by; you cannot do it all by yourself, and understand the strengths and weaknesses of those around you to maximise the chance of success. A truly outstanding example of what leadership looks like, Mr Turner is a rare breed in the executive world. As Tapiit continues to grow exponentially and set industry benchmarks for what maritime training could, and should be, Mr Turner is an exciting figure in the development of exciting, ground-breaking technologies and simple solutions.
