Voytek Chelkowski

Seamind Pte Ltd; Co-Founder, The Mind Alliance

An entrepreneur, mediator, speaker and a change consultant, Voytek has enjoyed a nearly 30-year career centred on two elements: navigation and transformation.  Voytek’s career took him from his native Poland and high seas to New York, San Francisco, Singapore and Geneva, where his roles transformed from navigating ships to helping grain clients navigate risk and conflict, and in recent years, to helping organizations and individuals navigate change.
In 1989, after sailing merchant ships and lecturing sea commerce, Voytek moved to the USA, where he completed his management studies, launched a career in commercial shipping with Marine Chartering San Francisco, and eventually founded Seamind Technologies, a Silicon Valley based maritime related IT start up. In 1998, Voytek moved to Singapore where he managed commercial operations of Polsteam Asia and founded SeaMind, a consulting company offering strategic advice on vessels’ acquisitions, risk management, joint ventures, multi-party negotiation, and managing ocean freight portfolios for grain clientele. 
In recent years, Voytek has integrated his business experience with a range of psychological disciplines he studied at INSEAD. Voytek co-founded The Mind Alliance, a Geneva based network of consultants committed to helping organizations and individuals understand and navigate change.
Voytek holds MSc degree in Ocean Navigation (Maritime University, Szczecin), MSc in International Transport Management (State University of New York) and completed studies at the Executive Masters in Consulting and Coaching for Change Programme at INSEAD. Voytek is a member of the Baltic Exchange, International Society for Psychoanalytic Studies of Organizations and Organisation for Promoting Understanding of Society.
