Brief introduction of my today´s interview partner:
Seldom did a title of a podcast episode describe the personality of an interview partner any better than the today´s one: „It wont work, doesn´t work for him!“ Prof. Dr. Marcel Wainwright is really an extraordinary example for what one can achieve with the right attitude and an absolute will power!
He started his professional career from scratch and became confronted in his childhood with racism because of his skin colour. All in all, these circumstances made a contribution to becoming this extraordinary personality, he is today!
Professionally, he is today a super successful dentist respectively surgeon with an excellent reputation worldwide. His patients are coming from all over the world, in order to receive medical treatments from this expert! No wonder, that the dental practice he had founded several years ago in Düsseldorf is meanwhile among the top 5 in Germany!
But it is even more impressive and wonderful to see, that he has been achieving this with standing for values and living human greatness! A leadership style which unfortunately is not so common anymore those days in our society. Even with all the success-stories around him and his business, he has never forgotten where he is coming from and remains always grounded, which he underlines in this interview quite impressively!
His life motto is: „Whenever you have a life plan, what ever you want to do, and you have the will and options to do so, you can achieve everything you want!“ And in this regard you may expect here a real firework of inspirations from him! Besides the fact, that he has been also a passionate Footballer!
Apart from his professional career, he will underline this in a quite impressive manner through different life stories as e.g.:
- his participation at the Judoca event „U40 German Championship“ with !!!ONLY!!! 6 weeks preparation (after being out of this sport for 10 years)
- or the diagnosis of becoming a cripple, which he simply did not accept, and today he is playing again soccer without any problems
- or his experience related to spontaneous healing of cancer
He understands himself as a problem solver, a solution provider! And that´s the way, he has been acting his whole life, professionally as well as for his private activities.
