Pierre Landolt: The Sustainable Man
Pierre Landolt has had a love affair with Brazil ever since his relocation to São Paulo with Sandoz Pharmaceuticals in 1974. The following three years gave Mr Landolt the opportunity to understand a nation long touted as the country of the future–an expectation becoming a reality in the 21st century…
More and more organisations in Switzerland are turning to a technique called scenario planning to help them visualise how their future business landscape may develop. By using this process to envisage alternative future terrains, they can better spot opportunities and flexibly prepare for challenges they may encounter. Woody Wade, a Lausanne-based consultant and author of a new guidebook on the technique, helps companies navigate this fascinating and creative process…
High Style, Literally
Talk about an auspicious debut. Swiss Development Group, a leading luxury lifestyle developer now present in the world of Swiss property, is turning heads in some of Switzerland’s most beautiful locations. Two projects currently under construction promise not only an opulent lifestyle but the views with which to enjoy them…
Smooth To The Touch
Like a big family reuniting for a holiday dinner, the Italian economy as a whole can come across as a superficially dysfunctional set of strong-willed individuals who really do love each other, warts and all. As expected, there is lots of shouting, lots of good-natured arguments among the most vocal relatives that by dessert time will have degenerated into heated disagreements barely restrained by the bonds of love…
The extent to which good universities take their responsibility in education is revealed in a conversation with Robert Spencer, Director General of Webster University’s Geneva campus, and Ron Daniel, Webster’s Academic Director. Both gentlemen spoke about the numerous improvements currently being undertaken at Webster in a clearly determined effort to make the university a better institution than it already is…
More Than Mere Cash
The folks at EMI Zürich were kind enough to let us dig into the treasure trove of timeless music and celebrate this fab anniversary with you. Besides John Lennon’s Signature Box there’s the entire back catalogue of the band of bands up for grabs – and in full glory too, remastered by the best-trained ears the Abbey Road staff had to offer…
GEMS World Academy-Etoy
Switzerland’s public school system ranks among the best in the world, but the increasing number of private and international schools in the country reflects the demand of mobile modern families and more than a few locals to immerse their children’s education in a truly multi-cultural and international setting…
The finite asset
Worries about Switzerland being covered in concrete are nothing new. But with the popular “aye” for the Weber Initiative earlier this year, the people showed that they were no longer willing to accept unlimited building. And another initiative may restrict construction even more…
The hotel, part of the Tessin-based Giardino Hotel Group, is an example of what one might call “Alpine chic”, a style that is both contemporary and fresh. Giardino Mountain, formerly the resort hotel Chesa Guardalej, was completely refurbished to the tune of CHF 20 million and then some, and re-opened its doors in December last year…
Back in the saddle
The world of fashion and taste seems to repeat itself in cycles of quasi-innovation. And apparently, society’s vacationing habits are also cyclical, judging from the recent relaunch of Club Med…

From High Tech to High Touch
The human body is a biological masterpiece. Keep yours safe and sound.
No matter how hard they may try, businesses will never be able to produce a machine as wonderfully complex as the human body. From a single cell grows the most intelligent being on Earth. And yet, we humans sometimes behave in ways animals would never consider: we ignore signals that warn us that our bodies are not completely healthy, pushing on with our daily lives and hoping whatever ails us will simply go away….

Latest article of interest
- Switzerland doesn’t always leap to mind as a natural destination for expatriates in the prime of their working lives. We usually think of expats moving to Dubai for work, or retiring to a beach in Spain, but in fact, Switzerland has a growing expat community and now has one of the highest proportions of working-age foreign nationals in Europe.
