Celine Vadam founded her company WE(i) Think in mid-2020, aiming to bring a wellbeing angle to the hospitality, tourism and real estate industry, and bridging the gap between innovative solutions and projects. She is currently working on a range of hospitality projects from initial development stages to operations and asset management, implementing wellbeing concepts from light to holistic and liaising with the top brands in the industry, including in the health/integrative field.
In 2021, after completion of her Health Coaching training from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, she launched Retrouv’I, providing bespoke wellness programs and coaching services to individuals.
Prior to entrepreneurship, she worked on a wide range of projects across the globe for international hotels and consulting companies, including Horwath HTL and most recently Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, where she was part of the development team, as well as supporting Corporate Global Operations on pre-openings and strategic initiatives, including F&B and nutrition. She was also teaming with the VP of Global Wellness on defining the global wellness strategy, brand standards and implementation, and concepts for new openings and renovations.
Her holistic vision of hospitality is served by her multi-disciplinary skills, placing the concept at the center of the project and involving market research, feasibility analysis, facilities programming, financial projections, operational structuring, design and commercial conceptualisation, implementation and delivery.
Her wellness competences, acquired through years of research and interest in the topic, are completed by certifications in holistic healing, yoga and fitness, integrative nutrition and health coaching.
