“The only kinds of coaches we consider whole child coaches are ones who are interested in growing, you may have coached for 30 years, but we’re learning so many things about kids’ bodies, kids’ brains … a coach has to be willing to adapt to look for the best new way of doing things.”

Luis Fernando Llosa speaks at schools, community gatherings, sports leagues, Universities and Corporations on the subjects of youth sports, the Psyche of the Elite Athlete and Diversity Leadership, using his two decades of experience as a Fortune, Money Magazine and Sports Illustrated reporter and a senior investigator at Sports Illustrated.

He is bilingual and can present talks and workshops in both English and Spanish.
