Speaker Tom Allan – The Costa Concordia Aftermath and recovery

We are delighted to welcome back Tom Allan, one of our HeartBeat Support
members. Tom spoke to us in April 2013 on the tragic sinking of the cruise ship Costa
Concordia off the Italian coast in January 2012, claiming the lives of 32 passengers and crew. This time he will be updating us about the aftermath, investigation and the recently
completed salvage and recovery process of the Costa Concordia.

Tom was a Director of the UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) and the UK
Permanent Representative to the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
(IMO is the United Nations Agency which deals with maritime matters). He also now
(in retirement) is still involved in the safety of cruise vessels and provides advice on the
safety of new construction passenger ships.

This again promises to be an enlightening, fascinating and interesting view from
someone closely involved with all aspects of maritime safety.
