20 Best Aviation & Marine Management Consultancy – Asia Jan22522 VWACS provides consulting, management, education and administrative services. While operating as an agile, forward-thinking organisation with operations based in Hong Kong and Thailand, the firm also has online businesses thus enabling a global reach. As a team of highly experienced and industry qualified professionals, Aviation and Marine consulting and management services are VWACS primary strengths, in which it has proven track records from many years in these industries. As well as operating throughout Asia, the small yet highly focused organisation has additional VWACS Associates based in the USA, Canada, UK, Spain, Romania and Qatar, spanning 17 time zones. Collectively, the company speaks English, Arabic, Finnish, Cantonese, Mandarin, Romanian, French and Thai. Offering a straightforward, cost effective and totally client centered approach to business, VWACS focuses on providing high-level expertise underpinning its services. “Quality is a watchword for us,” a VWACS spokesperson explains. “It is our dedication and professional work ethic that separates us from our competition.” By way of an example, VWACS was recently approached to help a globally renowned company that had been commissioned to deliver a professional course to one of its highest profile clients in the Middle East. A contract that, due to the collapse of their sub-contracted training entity, it was unable to fulfil. With a tight deadline, slim budget, unfavourable course objectives and basic training material, VWACS was able to develop a suitable course within these confines and to industry leading standards. VWACS core industries have been very badly affected over the last two years, which has forced the company to adapt and modify its business model, with it also exploring and adopting some new business opportunities, particularly in the fields of Education and Ecommerce, but also in Investment and Asset Management. “We have been able to do this through our agile and forward-thinking approach to business,” the spokesperson continues. “We are results, not profit orientated.” It is clear that it’s not all down to the company and its services. In fact, the dedicated employees are very much what makes the company tick. “Our people are our business. We are nothing without them. We recruit through merit based personal networking, we do not look for, nor require academic qualifications, we look for people with integrity, intelligence, experience and energy. We have fostered a spirit of community through transparency and honesty – quality communication is key to our favourable company culture.” Having recently been recognised in the LUXlife Awards and named Best Aviation & Marine Management Consultancy for Asia, VWACS is excited about the future. The firm’s Marine Manager who is based in Phuket, Thailand, has been very busy working on a new project to expand the company’s existing Marine consultancy and management services in the luxury leisure boat charter business. In addition, VWACS is focussed on its environmental impact and is following the three steps towards achieving climate neutral certification which it aims to achieve within the next five years. “In our Head Office, we use the “reduce, reuse, recycle” approach to drive down our wastage,” continues the company spokesperson. “We calculate that our total waste to landfill has been reduced by around 90% since we started. We recycle to the point of our left-over food waste that we collect and pass to our local food waste composter.” VWACS is also committed to ‘giving something back’ and is currently engaged with a local charity that rescues surplus food from different sectors of the food industry that would otherwise be disposed of as waste, then following strict safety protocols, the recovered food items are then prepared as nutritious meals and distributed to underprivileged communities in Hong Kong. We also participate in the global microfinance programme run by "CARE International UK", an organisation that brings together entrepreneurs in low-income countries with the businesses that have the power to help them. Lendwithcare is a revolutionary way to help people to work their way out of poverty with dignity. The future looks green, clean, and bright for VWACS!
