Alexis Eyre

Sustainable Marketing Consultant

"If you want to make your mark in the marine industry, make sure you have experience in other industries first. They need external experience and you will bring something different to the table. Plus once you’re in, make sure you keep one finger always outside the industry whether via a committee or via networking to ensure that you are always learning from outside."

Emma Johnson

Business Development Director

“I absolutely love working in the Maritime Sector! The opportunities are endless, the people are fantastic, every day is different and it gives me the chance to travel the world – what more could you want from your career!”

“Some innovations can be truly fascinating in the maritime sector.  Its wide range of industries and professional development opportunities also offer an engaging and enriching experience where your learning journey never stops. From renewables, marine, to oil and gas and defence, the industry can be quite exciting professionally speaking.”

“When all seems to be against you, remember, a ship sometimes has to sail against the current, not with it”

After working as the Marketing Manager at Martek Marine for over 4 years, I decided to set up my own content marketing agency in 2020. 10X Marketing now work with wide a range of clients, but we’re particularly interested in working with ocean economy businesses. We aim to help become more digitalised and generate more leads using content marketing strategies.

Head of Operations and Marketing

During my research, I have interviewed several incredible women who work onboard vessels. I’d like to share a quote from a 3rd Engineering Officer that resonated for me…

“Women are here and impossible to ignore, and the more of
us that accept the challenge and succeed, the more doors
we open and paths we pave”
