Seminars are educational events for managers, employees, or even the general public. Seminars encourage staff and clients to broaden their knowledge and horizon towards your business. It gives people the opportunity to learn things specifically around your business and gives them a chance to grow and progress their relationship with your company. They can have a single speaker or multiple speakers throughout the seminar. In business, seminars are meetings organized to inform a group of people about a specific topic, or to teach a specific skill. Expert speakers and teachers are usually invited to speak on maritime topics. The terms “workshop” and “seminar” are used interchangeably. While both are education focused events, workshops generally have more hands-on and group activities. Workshops are better for teaching skills that require interactivity and individual participation to learn.
