I’ve known Marco since 1995. The international experience that he brings to the table benefits every level in a transport and/or lift organization, starting from the pre-engineering phase, to equipment selection, to logistics and execution. Not only is he a true asset to our industry but I consider him a personal friend as well.

Summit 2013

The Works international offers two types of seminars.
The Public Seminar and the In-House Seminar.

The Public Seminars are given worldwide at various locations around the world depending on demand from a certain area.
The In-House Seminars are given on site at a company’s request.

Both seminars are for a wide variety of individuals such as dispatchers, engineers, management (both middle and top management) operational and commercial personnel and have proven to be very efficient, helpful and a great success in terms of achieving the overall seminar goal.

Giving knowledge to our world !!.


I offer three seminar levels, they all cover the same topics but in various degree of details and depth.

– 1. Boot Camp
The Boot Camp seminar is targeted for individuals that are required to work with and around Heavy Transport and Lift projects but are not deeply involved in the engineering and execution. Experience learns that freight forwarders are much interested in this training. The Boot Camp gives them the knowledge to ask the right questions and understand the various phases of a project that involves Heavy Transport, Heavy Lift and Project & Specialized Cargo but without going into much engineering and calculation details.

– 2. Seminar
The Seminar is suited for (heavy) lift & transport companies, petrochemical plants, fabrication yards etc. Companies and individuals that are on the executing end or overseeing the executing end in detail. The Seminar gives the various layers in their organization the skills to think in the same direction and along the same lines. Herewith creating efficiency and preventing mishaps. All lifting and transport equipment available on today’s market is explained in great detail, highlighting the possibilities and limitations of each. Many case studies form a part of the seminar.

– 3. Master Class
The Master Class is almost exclusively for companies and individuals that are responsible for calculations and justifications. Based on the attendance it is safe to say that engineers, engineering companies and insurance companies form the largest audience. The main difference between the Seminar and the Master Class is that the Master Class takes it a step further and not only solves the case studies but also highlights why one solution is better than another one, supported by a good foundation.

Seminars are given in a class room environment, except for the hands-on workshop, this is given in the field. The client base for seminars is not limited to Heavy Transport and Lift companies. The Works international is proud to have given seminars to heavy transport companies, manufacturers, engineering companies and refineries, to name a few. The sessions are based on slide shows with many pictures and movies of actually executed transports and lifts. This gives a very realistic impression to the audience. During the sessions as many questions as occur may be asked and are answered. Healthy dialogues between different departments of the same company often take place, resulting in a better understanding of each others’ situations.


These are not “sit and listen” seminars, these are highly interactive seminars where dialogues take place and questions are asked (and answered).
