New WAS President Guillaume Drillet: "...it is about engaging people and supporting the transfer of information.."
I have to admit that I am very happy to be able to serve WAS and the APA chapter in particular; Asia has been my home for 7 years now, my Mom herself is born in Phnom Penh; it is a family circle back to ground zero!
I have always been very active in taking responsibilities in societies and association in general. In the recent years, I have taken two big challenges, the WAS-APC and the GloBal TestNet and this keeps me very enthusiastic and busy. I love structuring, organizing and helping people to get something extra. I believe this is what WAS is about.
