After speaking to Ryan, a former pro ice hockey player, in our last show, Episode 47 now takes the conversation to an ice hockey coach with international experience- Barry Smith. We met to discuss his experience of coaching (and playing) hockey abroad. I must say that his advice and knowledge definitely underline what we stand for here at Fit across Cultures. It really helps your success (in performance and life) to immerse yourself in the culture.
Barry touches several aspects:
Barry, who attended the University of Alaska, has a long list of experience coaching abroad in Canada, Sweden, the Netherlands and lastly for Amiens in France. He’s also played in North America and Europe, so his wide range of experiences and expertise made him such a great interview partner.
