My education and professional qualifications

I like to think about them as if they were growth rings of a tree trunk. Those annual rings constantly grow, just as my experience and knowledge that broaden each day. You can find among them those very narrow and not very pretty when a specific year lacked valuable experiences but the majority of them looks robust and healthy.

In order to keep orientation, you should read the information below as if it was a business CV, i.e. from the bottom (the past) and move up, towards the present time.

Music and medicine: it happens that I had put 10 years of my professional life in each of them. Obviously, when I finally can deal with both of them at the same time, I am not going to give it up neither after 10 nor even 20 years – I am convinced I have a thrilling occupation for the rest of my lifetime.

I CHOOSE MUSIC AND MEDICINE 2009 - until the end

  • WIEMBA – Warsaw-Illinois Executive MBA, Master of Business Administration degree. An interesting experience. I make a big effort in order to squeeze myself into the frames that do not fit me at all. A few excellent teachers and cool people from various business branches. It was worth it, although the studies, together with corporate drudgework exhaust me a lot. I also know by then that this is not my story -and my health charges me accordingly for the constant overexploitation.

  • Work in a global medical corporation. During 10 years I work in the Operating Theaters of all surgical specialties in a group of Polish cities – occupation I simply adore – and I also sell great products (and I adore them too, although sales itself does not thrill me too much and I will rather pass over the corporation’s name). A great time of contacts with many outstanding people: great surgeons , OR nurses. At first I am being tortured (in order to keep the highest professional level) with tests on human anatomy, surgical procedures and products, then (as a consequence of official “annointment”) – it is me who torments people: I make up perfidious examination tests and I demand knowledge. There is also a lot of fun and satisfaction, as I feel I am doing something that has positive impact on patient’s quality of life and the knowledge about new products and surgical techniques among surgeons. A turnover and a change.
  • Medical Representative, Divisional Manager, Marketing Manager

I CHOOSE MUSIC 1985-1996

  • I study, I perform in concerts, I build up a repertoire that I eventually never will be able to sing in front of the audience. I hoard nearly 400 pieces (lieder, opera and oratorio arias) yet in practice there is a constant demand just for a dozen of easy-to-digest hits. As I finally get bored with the status quo, I start to give lectures about music. A turnover in my health is a good reason to simply drop it all one day.
