International shipping carries of 80% of global trade, worth approximately $15 trillion per year, and contributes around 2.5% of global carbon emissions.
On 5-6 November 2021, during COP26 in Glasgow, the shipping industry convened for Shaping the Future of Shipping – the largest conference of industry leaders for over 50 years. In 24-hours, via networking receptions, formal and informal dinners, a conference and closed-door industry-ministerial discussions, 250 industry leaders and seven ministers assembled to address the urgent actions needed to decarbonise the global shipping industry and set the course of the industry for decades ahead.
Brands at Work
In 2010, Karen Kadin and John Birger had a vision to put their clients’ brands to work by creating experiences that would inspire action and transform performance. Fast forward 12 years and we’re now 25-strong, with every member of our team sharing the same entrepreneurial spirit and fearless passion of our founders.
Our people design and deliver strategic, story-driven, and yes – often theatrical – experiences, in a way that delights our clients. We’ve not only survived, but thrived during the recent crisis, thanks to our enduring client relationships and our values-driven collaborative culture, that our people are proud to uphold.
CTL communications is a unique story of building an award winning communications agency with clients and team members the world over. We carve out a point of difference for our clients in blending deep content expertize with fresh thinking communications strategy and imaginative execution. We work on the engagements that matter across all touchpoints and media. From live events and trade shows to digital storytelling, brand identity and campaigning, to corporate strategy and helping clients recruit and train their people. Since COVID our business has doubled and our team is four times what it was just three years ago. Yet our beginnings were humble – a one person operation in the spare room started at the height of the 2009 recession. Today we have a team of more than 50 full time and are rapidly hiring to 70+. There is a CTL feeling and a buzz that drives our team but that we also look to inject into our clients. We simply look to do what we do best. Know the client and their content intimately and put that knowledge to work in brilliant creativity, flawlessly executed. For us it’s personal.

Everyone has a story. At emc3, we use events to tell them. Through the power of strategic storytelling we raise the bar of the customer experience by creating events that inspire conversations; create memories and transform the way customers and brands connect. How? By utilising an unparalleled approach that combines creativity with logistical expertise and technology, to help our clients find their message, discover what triggers their customer buy-in and empowers attendees to maximise their success.
Starting as a concierge service over 20+ years ago, we used our knack for connecting people, bringing ideas to fruition by curating key bespoke elements like venue sourcing, strategic partnerships and supplier relationships, and turned it into a full-service agency. Now, we specialise in creating immersive in-person, virtual and hybrid events.
All of which is made possible by our incredible team. From exceeding their internal objectives to getting clients exceptional results, our team is going from strength to strength. They work incredibly well together, spanning different roles and departments and are always willing to help one another, both personally and professionally. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to achieve the things that we do, nor have fun whilst doing it!
