In his six webinar since the coronavirus pandemic began, yachting expert Hein Velema was joined by a panel of four CEOs to discuss their current experiences during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Hein was joined by the heads of companies from a broad cross-section of the superyacht industry including Jonathan Beckett from Burgess, Jan Bart Verkuyl from Feadship, Tankoa’s Vincenzo Poerio and Sjoerd de Keizer from De Keizer Marine.
A number of great anecdotes of good advice surfaced from the discussion including:
Use the opportunity to create a new business plan
Learn from previous recessions
Shipyards are likely to continue with their projects
Some of the new ways of working are extremely effective
Brokers should stay in touch with clients
