Girls on top?

So we are now truly in the age of the woman, from America from Europe and in to the more or less United Kingdom, its fairly much or about to be, women in charge.

Run for the hills, or at least slowly meander, grumbling while doing so!

But there’s the interesting thing, within our little world does this actually register currently?

The marine sector has for many reasons, over the years been a male dominated environment, maybe somewhere for the man to feel a man, excuse the double entendre…

However in reality as a god fearing man (no really) I have always believed that us men have actually always been allowed to play by the better half, as long as we ultimately do as we are told. Well now with the women taking over the world we better beware!

Judging by the standard of customer care witnessed around our sector, I would have to say there needs to be some big improvements, in order to satisfy what a woman would be prepared to put up with.

The ‘it will be good enough’ or ‘it’s a boat, what do you expect’ attitude that blokes accept, will no longer be fit for purpose - in a world run by the woman. Which you could only say would be a dammed good thing for the industry as a whole!

Over time I have noticed that the few businesses in the sector that are actually controlled by a woman are much more tuned into customers and have settled staff. Not scientific but I wonder if we should not all consider learning from the examples.

So anyway maybe it’s time to start listening and acting on what’s been said by those in the real power, before she actually has to tell you to do it…   What could possibly go wrong?
