Bill Hansen

Senior Consultant

Business Management & Development

Bill’s areas of expertise are in leadership and management as exemplified by the success of his own company, Bill Hansen Catering & Event Production. After 41 years, Bill’s firm continues to prosper, while spawning scores of South Florida caterers along the way, including many former employees and students. The key to Bill’s success is his belief in training, empowering, and delegating to his key staffers. There is not a catering firm in South Florida that does not have a connection to Bill Hansen. And Bill welcomes the competition!
Taking his inspiration from Zig Ziglar, instead of thinking about being retired, Bill is re-fired and expanding his borders with his newest creation of the Bill Hansen Hospitality Group, the umbrella company to his endeavors. BHHG is a one-stop concierge service which encompasses every aspect of event planning.
In addition, Bill Hansen Training has been established to share his expertise in developing “service that sizzles.” Bill has created, in partnership with The School for the Service Arts, a comprehensive online training course covering every aspect of on and off premise catering. This program consists of 27 modules encompassing Caterer Management and Caterer Staff FOH and BOH. It also provides certificate hours for NACE and contact hours toward the Certified Professional in Catering and Events (CPCE) application or recertification.
