“Approximately one year ago Mr. Williston Clover of Panorama International commenced with the assistance of finding funding for our resort & spa development project here in Anguilla, and I can say now in retrospect that it was a fortuitous day for our business. Not only were they professional, highly energized and eager in their efforts, they also and remain very intuitive when it comes to quickly understanding our requirements and how to best help us meet our business needs.”

“For example; in addition to Panorama International identifying some very effective cost evaluation engineering solutions they also increased our income revenue by implementing additional methods and doing so with minimal set up costs to our business.”

“Panorama International repeatedly surpassed every expectation that we had of them, and produced results that equaled or excelled that of previous consultants that our company had been associated with.”

Chief Operations Officer
Shoal Bay Development Corporation in Shoal Bay, Anguilla, BWI

“I am an international hotelier with over twenty years experience. I have worked with Mr. Clover and his company, Panorama International since 1999. Mr. Clover helped us in Indonesia to refinance the Regeant Hotel in Jakarta, and the Nikko Hotel in Bali. After the financial collapse of the country and the entire hotel industry went into bankruptcy, it was Bill who had the vision and guts to go forward with this refinancing venture. This triggered a domino effect and several international banks then came to the assistance of Indonesia. I give Mr. Clover props for basically saving the hotel industry in Indonesia. Mr. Clover also helped me when I was down and out so I would like to give mention to his great character as well. I have worked with Mr. Clover for thirteen years now and I would work with him again. I highly recommend him and his company.”
