Yachting experts predict ” Digital interviews are the next big thing”.

Thijs Van Dooren, the founder of William’s Club was born and raised in the islands of the Caribbean. After moving to the Netherlands, he realized his passion for Yachts and decided to create something on his own, and today is successfully providing candidates to some of the fine yachts in the industry.   Q1) Tell us about the William’s Club and its role into the yachting industry?
