Ethics as an advantage in business

In business, everything revolves around measurable results. But the question of meaning cannot be answered by statistics. Let’s forget about business as a mere numbers game. In reality it is about the positive emotion conveyed, the repeated willingness of people to work with you, to use your products or services, to become part of your story.

The presentation will be in a form of a moderated conversation, moderated by Martin Vasquez.

Moderated discussion with Prof. MUDr. Pavel Pafko

Healthy Performance. Health. Performance. Efficiency. Balance. Do these terms belong together? How do we achieve one without depriving ourselves of the other? We will talk about these topics with professor Pavel Pafko.

Professor Pavel Pafko is an exemplary combination of two elements – health and efficiency. What are the most significant changes in the approach to our health or full performance from his practice? How is the concept of work-life balance changing and why we no longer have to be successful only at the cost of our own health? And what recipe does Pavel Pafko himself have for his vitality?

During the discussion we will talk about health and performance as areas that do not have to exist only at the expense of each other, as it seemed in the past, but instead as areas that not only coexist, but can directly support and build on each other. We will touch on this topic from a medical, psychological and philosophical perspective.

The discussion will be moderated by Martin Vasquez.
