Thomas Wälti is a story-teller, a creative copywriter who presents complex subjects in easy to digest morsels. He sees concise writing thus: reducing the herd of cattle to a stock cube – in keeping with the motto: “keep it short and sweet”. The media professional interviews statesmen, leading politicians, sporting legends and music stars for influence (the newsletter). The passionate chess player also finds time for the monthly chess puzzle: “Checkmate in two moves”.
As sports editor for the BZ Berner Zeitung for many years, Thomas Wälti is the sporting conscience of furrerhugi. In his leisure time, the Kilimanjaro climber prefers to be in nature. Hiking is his passion; the mountains strengthen him; mountain huts are his oasis from hectic everyday life.
