What is Copyright and Why Is It Important to Your Coaching Business?


As a coach, you have worked hard to develop your training knowledge and methodologies. And like most if not all coaches, you may have published training information on personal or similar websites. This webinar from published Olympic cycling and triathlon coach Gale Bernhardt will help you protect your intellectual information. Bernhardt will share basic copyright terms and what to include in your author agreements, an essential element for any writing completed when writing for another party. Capitalize on your triathlon training knowledge while avoiding having others take advantage of you. A live Q&A session with Bernhardt will be held at the end of the webinar where she will tackle your questions.
