It’s no secret and we all experience it every day – the world is getting monotonous and tiresome, day by day. Your dreams were so long just dreams that eventually faded away. And so it is with your work and private life. Where does it go?

Is it because you are lazy now? Or is it because school told you what to do until now and there is lack of guidance? What if you create “a playground” to improve your decision making under stress skills, your adaptation skills, your persistence or resourcefulness?

Look forward to a journey into the wild world and let’s check whether there is a limit of what you can do.

Cezary Tręda parallelly develops professionally in genetic engineering and cancer science as a scientist, as well as mountaineering, extreme travel and pathfinding out of passion. PhD at Tohoku University Medical School was done together with 30 out of 100 Nihon Hyaku-meizan and first of The Seven Summits – Africa highest peak – Kilimanjaro (5895m). Next years brought successes in three other continents (Europe: Mont Blanc (4808m), Elbrus (5642m); South America: Aconcagua (6961m), North America: Denali (6190m)) as well as the first Polish ascent on Guallatiri, the highest active volcano in the world (6071m) and many more.

Each of the travels and ascents were unguided (all except Kilimanjaro), some of them solo (f.ex. Aconcagua, Pik Lenin (7134m) and more). Combines professional work mixed with constant training, gear testing, planning. His expeditions bring joyful stories but sometimes painful lessons. Rapid change of the environment, leaving any known road, just to get to a point marked by GPS very often leads to decision-making process under stress. Will it boost your adaptation ability to changing environments? Will it advantage your resourcefulness in professional life or the contrary? Let’s look for an answer during Cezary’s presentation.
