       Pierre-Yves Le Gal于2008年毕业于瓦岱勒巴黎校区,于2009年毕业于瓦岱勒洛杉矶校区,坚信“瓦岱勒网络是一笔无价资产”。5 K* i  J1 S2 N

       你好,Pierre-Yves!你从高中毕业后就进入了一所普通的商学院,后来又于2006年开始在瓦岱勒巴黎校区学习。2008年你在瓦岱勒洛杉矶校区攻读工商管理硕士学位。你能告诉我们是什么促使你想要在瓦岱勒学习吗?0 b' Q* V2 O# p: ]: S* p0 w8 h. p
       我一直都对酒店行业非常感兴趣。当我在一家餐厅进行自己的第一份夏季临工时,我还非常年轻,我一直都想继续在该领域工作。但是当时我对自己的职业生涯仍然感到非常迟疑,所以我就进入了南特(Nantes)一所普通的商学院学习。

       例如,当我刚刚22岁时,我的英语并不是特别好,但是我的主管仍然毫不顾忌地告诉我:“小伙子!这是你的团队,这是餐厅,这些是钥匙,今天晚上你关门!”有时我觉得自己不得不承担起自己可能并没有能力完成的事情的责任。这时你就不得不告诉自己“我会尽全力做好每一件事情,每件事情都会很顺利。”尽管这让人倍感压力。& v' t) }8 T% |/ u+ ^1 |2 N& t

       除此之外,从学术角度看,瓦岱勒洛杉矶校区的两位导师授课非常棒,激发了我们的求知欲望;从辅导和管理的角度来看,他们是我透彻理解所有事情的指明灯。Marcus Buckingham的书籍《你需要知道的一件事情》(The One Thing You Need to Know)中的一句话,仍然贴在我的办公室门上:“发现你的员工的独特之处,并充分利用这一点!”7 ]) s: C3 X! X7 {% A

       你为何想成为一名企业家?6 O! U9 F+ f! M  D6 z
       我很幸运自己能够在企业阶梯上晋升地如此之快。当我23岁时,我就成为了Ciel de Paris餐厅的餐厅经理;25岁时我就开始领导四星级酒店Murano Resort Marrakesh,成为摩洛哥最年轻的酒店经理。5 m5 C$ Y. N8 j: E4 |  a

       坦白来讲,因为我的实践经验非常丰富,并努力在酒店和餐厅落实‘我的’管理方法,所以我才能获得这些职位。

       当我在摩洛哥完成工作之后,我很容易就做了决定:我的‘工具箱’满了,我想要开创自己的公司。所以我决定为自己工作。我终于能够做自己热爱以及一直梦想的事情:咨询。去年,我获得了在圣特罗佩(Saint-Tropez) Christophe Leroy Group集团的工作机会,该集团也在加勒比群岛(Caribbean islands)、美国和摩洛哥管理各大酒店。我主要负责运营设施管理,落实集团标准和程序,开设新酒店和组织会展(尤其是我之前负责的圣特罗佩白夜派对),同时我还能够成为一个集团“自由电子”顾问。: `" J4 @6 K7 k9 p- F

To illustrate this, a Vatelien advised him to enroll in Vatel when he was doing his internship for his second year of business school. And a Vatel alumnus will also be the first person hired by the consulting company, Arzel Management, which he founded in 2012. He’s also launching a company in Morocco with another Vatel alumnus.

I’ve always been fascinated by the hospitality industry. I was quite young when I had my first summer jobs in a restaurant and I always wanted to continue working in this field. But I was still hesitant about my career and I enrolled in a general business school in Nantes.

" r) Q1 Z- w" c- S: R% F8 V. X7 w4 bThe turning point came in my second year of school when I did two consecutive internships in Hebel Traiteur [Hebel Catering] in Nantes. I discovered the world of events management with Bertrand Eloud, who was my supervisor and who encouraged me to continue my education with management training in the hospitality and catering industries. This internship really opened my eyes: it was great to manage people in such a unique field. Once I had my bachelor’s degree in marketing, I went to Vatel.

Vatel brought me a complementary balance in my skills. A “hands-on” vision with a managerial and human approach focused on precise and exacting work, being exemplary and modernization of our industry.! s! X9 f7 a) z7 o# n

9 |. Z7 Z; N2 D1 M6 rI enrolled in Vatel in Los Angeles the very first year the MBA degree began. We were the first class to graduate and I was our class Valedictorian. For me, this global experience is what really helped me out when I was starting off my professional life.9 `4 h& n7 V5 _3 z& Y
+ E" t4 A- ]5 L4 N
# s; }: P( ?) ]& @% F
For example, when I had just turned 22 and my English was not the greatest, my supervisor had no qualms about telling me: “Buddy!” Here’s your team, here is the restaurant, here are the keys; you’re closing tonight!” Sometimes I feel that you have to assume without really being capable of doing it. You just have to say to yourself, ‘I’ll do everything possible and everything will be all right.’ It was stressful though.

In addition to that, from an academic point of view, two instructors in Vatel in Los Angeles were able to put us completely at ease and make us want to read things which, from a coaching and managerial point of view, were my guiding lights in everything I needed to fully understand. A sentence from Marcus Buckingham’s book ‘The One Thing You Need to Know’ is still on my office door: ‘Find out what is unique in your people and capitalize on it!’) m! x8 D2 J+ M. d

I was lucky to be able to climb the corporate ladder quite quickly. When I was 23 I was hired as the Restaurant Manager in the Ciel de Paris restaurant and was also the youngest Hotel Manager in Morocco when I headed the four-star Murano Resort Marrakesh at the age of 25.

Frankly all of this was only possible because of my vast on-hands experience, and hard work in putting in place ‘my’ management and administration methods in the hotel and restaurant.

After I finished working in Morocco, the conclusion was easy to make: my ‘toolbox’ was full and I wanted to direct my own company. So I decided to work for myself. I was finally able to do what I love doing and what I had always dreamed of doing: consulting. Last year I had the opportunity to work with the Christophe Leroy Group, based in Saint-Tropez, which also manages facilities in the Caribbean islands, the USA and in Morocco. In charge of operational facility management, putting in place group standards and procedures, opening new hotels and organizing events (in particular the Saint-Tropez White Night Party which I was responsible for), I was able to be a group “free electron” consultant.
