Welcome to the Royal Australian Navy Indo Pacific Sailors’ Forum 2022, held in conjunction with the biennial Indo Pacific 2022 International Maritime Exposition.
Indo Pacific 2022 involves ten interrelated events:
Collectively the conferences and exposition offer an engaging and thought-provoking program for those with a personal and professional interest in naval and maritime affairs.
In 2022, the Sailors’ Forum theme is ‘Friendship, Partnership and Leadership.’ Join senior enlisted personnel from Indo Pacific navies as they explore the Forum’s theme and discuss ways of making leadership more of a partnership in the navy of the future. In addition, senior Royal Australian Navy Warrant Officers will provide insights into their areas of expertise and will make sure there will be ample opportunity ask questions and be involved panel discussions.
The forum’s program will enable all delegates to visit and engage the many industry displays in the Indo Pacific 2022 International Maritime Exposition, allowing yet more opportunities for education and professional discussions.
I look forward to welcoming delegates to the Sailors’ Forum.
Deb Butterworth, OAM, CSM and Bar
Warrant Officer of the Navy
