Dr. Gösta Christian Makowski, Partner, GSK Stockmann, Frankfurt
Spending some quality time with my children in the morning is absolutely essential.
No two workdays are the same, fortunately. I often have to conduct negotiations, coordinate with clients and colleagues, draft or revise contracts and attend a wide variety of events. But of course this is only a small part of my daily work.
I am inspired by the people I work with, especially my motivated and skilled colleagues at GSK Stockmann, but at the same time also by how varied my tasks are.
… be able to think quickly, enjoy advocating for clients’ interests and providing guidance. Despite the hectic pace, it is important to remain calm and keep things in perspective despite the complexity of the issues. Whether I succeed in doing this all the time is another matter.
Crazy, sexy, cool
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Swimming also provides some much needed balance for me.
