Brussel's Business Pilots

Our Story!

A business sometimes needs a pilot just like every athlete sometimes needs a trainer and every good businessman sometimes needs a coach.

Why the term Business Pilot?

A pilot is a mariner who guides ships through dangerous or congested waters. Pilots are expert ship handlers who possess detailed knowledge of local waterways.

A business pilot is a specialist in a particular field and can help guide you and your business to your objective, your vision. Contracting a pilot can save you time, money and he/she helps you stay on track. A pilot is also there to warn you or make you aware of problems (the rocks) before they become a burden and/or very costly to resolve.

When the pilot arrives on the bridge of a vessel, he or she conducts a conference with the ship’s master, exchanging information about the ship and the upcoming voyage through the problem area.

The business pilot will take the time to listen to you, ascertain your needs and exchange ideas and information with you. You are then guided to the stated goals and outcomes such as business plans, backcasts instead of forecasts, cash flow or ABC analytics.

The pilot then directs the navigation of the vessel, typically giving helm and engine commands directly to the bridge crew, subject to the master’s overall command of the vessel and ultimate responsibility for its safety.

The pilot is independent of the vessel and its owner but must work with the people on the vessel to ensure a safe voyage. In this regard, pilots must balance their public responsibilities with the need to provide good service to the vessels.

Brussel's business pilots don't get caught up in internal politics and personalities. We remain impartial so as to achieve the best results that fit the character of your business.

Pilots often serve on vessels they have never or rarely encountered before and must work closely with foreign crews with cultural differences and limited English language skills. Despite those challenges, pilots must quickly establish a smooth, cooperative working relationship with the people they encounter on the bridge and must project a calm, reassuring command presence. This is considered part of the “art” of piloting.

However, under all circumstances, the master has full responsibility for safe navigation of his vessel, even if a pilot is on board. Its your business and you are in charge always.
