#day in the life
NAME: Wojciech Liszka
MPI ROLE: MPI Poland President
DAY JOB: Director of Sales & Marketing,
Radisson Blu Hotel, Krakow
BASED IN: Krakow, Poland
DAY IN THE LIFE: My day normally starts around 6:30, when I run
to the gym and workout or take an hour run around the Krakow
Old Town. Living in the middle of UNESCO Heritage Site makes
running extremely pleasant and gives a chance to discover
something new every day. Training is important to me as I need
to keep in good shape for my International Basketball Referee
games. Basketball is definitely my second personality.
Once done with running, I can walk to the office, which is only
located around the corner. Full of energy, I'm meeting my team
for a daily briefing at 8:45 and try to share my positive energy
collected during the workout.
Once ensuring the team is doing the job, I can focus on the key
activities of the day. As the time until lunch is most productive
for my brain, I try to maximize efficiency and focus on key actions
driving the growth of our business. This can be related to new
products and services we want to implement or meeting key
clients to discuss important contracts.
Once the lunch is finished around 1 p.m., I check with my
team and dedicate some time to in-house duties, reporting, etc.
This includes also checking my MPI mailbox and pushing things
forward in this area.
Time between 5 and 6 p.m. is usually dedicated to developing
running concepts I have initiated. Poland Business Run is the
biggest charity running relay in the country, taking place in seven
cities with 20,000 runners forecasted for 2015.
Due to extremely short distance between the office and my
apartment, I usually return home around 6:30 p.m. Krakow Old
Town has more than 500 restaurants, bars and cafes, which
offer a variety of options and make me and my girlfriend lazy in
terms of cooking at home. We normally try to find a nice spot
and we have our favourite ones (Italian, Thai or sushi). Having
a walk afterwards is healthy and always brings me lots of joy
A movie in the evening is what my partner
likes much more than watching basketball
and preparing for my next game, but
she sometimes needs to accept
compromise. Having a partner
combined with my hotel job, MPI
volunteering, basketball officiating
and organizing charity events is not
easy, but it is always great to wake up
again together before
going to a morning
training session. @
