Who am I?
Learn some more about me and my story.
Hi, I'm Mandy. I help you take control of your career and enable you to take targeted action. This allows for a more successful and happier professional life. All my services are an effort to support you in this process by simplifying it, and making it fun. From there you have the clarity to find the answers and make the decisions best suited to you and your unique context.
"I feel unfulfilled, but what to do instead?"
Very few people know EXACTLY what they want. For most it's a lifelong learning process. Build your courage and allow yourself to find your answer.
"How can I leverage my strengths?"
Identifying exactly what strengths to leverage is difficult. Throw your modesty out the window get serious about seeing all you are really capable of.
"Where and how should I get started?"
The difference between a goal and a dream is an action plan. Get rid of excuses and go from the vague to the tangible. Live the life you want to live.
I graduated from the hotel school in Lausanne (EHL) in 2006 and transitioned into recruitment and executive search in 2009, discovering my passion for people and specifically for identifying the best match between a person and a career path. I certified in the Discover assessments to consolidate my passion and in 2019 I launched my own company - B-inspired Partners - to focus on talent management and career development.
I work with universities supporting the masters and doctorate students, with individuals to create their career roadmaps and with companies to develop their talent management programs.
Feel free to connect with me on Linked-in, but don't forget to include that all-important message! :-)
I am Dutch originally but grew up in the south of Spain, with my new home in Switzerland. That makes me a practical, straight-talking, service and quality focused lover of life with a whole lot of energy!
I used to struggle to "fit in" only to uncover after a long time, that all those uncomfortable and quirky parts of me. were actually my biggest assets and not my weaknesses after all!
Now I'm on a mission to make as many people as possible see themselves in that light too.
