BZ Maritime Leadership

Safely operating a yacht to its optimum requires exceptional Human Capability (Inter-Personal Skills, Leadership, Teamwork and Management).

We are world leaders in developing Human Capability and have extensive experience as maritime leaders, are certified Trainers and have premium academic leadership qualifications.  Working with yachts or individuals; programmes can be delivered onboard, in the classroom, or virtually.   


Our psychometric assessments are specially tailored for the superyacht industry and are proven to enhance recruitment processes, reducing uninformed hiring decisions. Research informs that using CVs and interviews alone do not achieve the same insight into personality and expected behaviour that psychometrics provides and reduces RISK.


BZ has extensive experience of developing captains and crew on a range of programmes, including leadership and management, coaching and mentoring, mental fitness and resilience, training 2 train and teambuilding.
