Participant feedback: “After these seminars, I changed my approach towards athletes, to how they feel and what they think. Until then, I paid little attention to the fact that athletes are the other half that needs to be consulted with, communicated with and included in planning processes. There is no “me” and “them”, there is only “us”, Vytautas Vaičikonis, Kayak and Canoe Rowing Coach.
