What can the business community learn from top level performance from the sport-, research- and the culture sector? How can a sport background be useful in worklife? This is some of the questions we will try to answer during this seminar. We have invited a top athlete, sport leader, sport psychology researcher and a representative for high perfomance in research and in culture. In addition to this there will be a handover of a communique to IOC from a group of young leaders from Germany and Norway that have collaborated in a workshop on Olympic values (see The German/Norwegian workshop). This seminar is also target towards the YOG sponsors and regional business leaders. In the extension of the conference there will be a dinner where you can meet the speakers and other participants.
