Corporate Values Analysis and Optimisation

This information is essential to then implement the desired company culture, with clear and harmonious values throughout the organisation, increasing productivity and reducing turnover thanks to an overall greater commitment to your organization.

I had the best training sessions ever... When I think about Bertrand, I can just say: "The reward for a work well done is the opportunity to do more." (Dr. Jonas Salk)

It was a real pleasure meeting and working with Bertrand. His genuine smile and passion will always be remembered through the future trainings we will be conducting at the hotel.

Bertrand has been a true mentor for me as he supported me and helped me to find my way in the business.

Bertrand immediately noticed my strong passion for well-being and suggested me to follow a career in the world of spa. He helped me to get in contact with the leaders of the Wellness sector and to build strong connections with the right people. The result is that I am working now as a Spa Manager in one of the leading Italian spa resorts.

Bertrand is "detail-minded" and very good in identifying areas of improvement (performance evaluation for the cabin crew members, for example).

Bertrand can easily adapt his language level. He very well understands the challenge it represents to manage people coming from another culture/generation.

The most striking achievement was your ability to get us to a point of determining a vision and identifying core values without having to comply with the status quo corporate statements.

Bertrand Willi

It is since the earliest stage of his life that Bertrand Willi demonstrated a passion for hospitality.

After graduating from the Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne (Switzerland) in January 2000, he joined Hyatt International Corporation, first as a Corporate Trainee at the Grand Hyatt Amman (Jordan), then as a Regional Operations Analyst for France, Spain, Belgium, and Morocco, based in Paris, and finally as a Marketing Manager Strategy for Europe, Africa & Middle East in Lausanne. In 2004, Bertrand went back to the Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne (EHL) to set-up its Alumni Relations & Career Services unit.

The active alumni network of the world's oldest hotel school consists of 9000+ members from all generations, located all over the world. A wide range of services and communication solutions have been developed for them, as well as for all current and potential employers of EHL students and alumni. Transposing EHL's values and mission to internal and external stakeholders (Students, Alumni, Faculty and Industry) is a core expertise of Bertrand. He took part in numerous hospitality trade shows and hotel investment conferences in Europe, Asia and the Middle East as the representative of EHL.

After 10 years of professional experience, Bertrand Willi has decided to put his skills, knowledge and experience at the service of the hospitality industry as a freelancer. His areas of expertise range from brand and business development, staff engagement techniques (including Generation Y associates), executive search and operational / analytical support for hospitality organizations and service-oriented functions. While his professional language skills are English and French, he also has a good understanding of German and Italian, and has been exposed to the Arabic, Asian and African cultures.

Mandy Bronsil

“Today with a confirmed experience within the recruitment industry in Switzerland and internationally, my ambition is to position Tailored Values’ Executive Search activities as a niche service. We specialize in identifying the optimal match between a person’s full potential, not merely their technical skills – and a company’s expectations today and for the future of their new colleague.”

A passion for people combined with a service oriented attitude, led Mandy to the world of hospitality, and to the Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne where she obtained her Bachelor of Science in 2006.

She started her career within the events industry, initially in the commercial department, followed by the coordination of transport for large scale events worldwide based in Spain.

Upon her return to Switzerland in 2009 she joined a recruitment company as a consultant and later a team manager. She rotated within various departments such as the finance, HR, sales and Interim both in Geneva and Lausanne, recruiting for the whole of the Suisse Romande from those locations.

Following some years in the industry, she joined a high-end executive search company to further develop her recruitment experience.

After several enriching years the firm, Mandy has now joined Bertrand Willi at Tailored Values with the aim to once again be closer to the hospitality industry and to focus on the optimal cultural fit between the person and the company, thereby creating strong employee engagement. She can leverage her core competencies of quickly understanding a client’s needs with her willingness to find a strong match between a company’s values and a potential candidate’s motivation, aiming for a long-term partnership that is beneficial to all parties.

She brings with her, her knowledge of the recruitment industry in the Switzerland and her well-developed network in the Hospitality, FMCG, Financial and industrial fields. Her international background and her previous experience recruiting for roles in operations, finance, HR, marketing and sales allow her to identify the technical requirements for an ideal candidate as well as a strong cultural fit with the company to optimise their long-term collaboration.
