“Leadership during the storm: a real-life team management story” by a professional sailor Rokas Milevicius
January 14th, Thursday, 2020 13:30 Vilnius time via ZOOM.

In good times and bad times, a team should have the same vision and goals to achieve the best results. But being a captain in a stormy sea means taking team management abilities to the next level. What specific skills are needed in challenging circumstances? And how do lessons learned sailing on the ocean apply in business?

A member of the Ambersail team and participant of Volvo Ocean Race (which is often described as the longest and toughest professional sporting event in the world) Rokas Milevicius, will share an inspiring and motivational story of how to manage and mobilize a team in challenging times. He will share his insights on how the emotional state of a leader affects the team and what is needed to bring the team together to sail out of the storm and achieve efficiency.


Rokas Milevičius is a Lithuanian professional sailor. In 2014 he joined the Dutch sailing team Brunel for the 2014–2015 Volvo Ocean Race (currently The Ocean Race). He is also an Olympic athlete, having competed in the London Olympic games 2012. He also took part in the Rio Olympic games as a coach of Gintarė Volungevičiūtė-Scheidt, who won a silver medal.

As a Laser sailor, Rokas managed to qualify for the 2012 Olympics on his own. Later, while sailing the VO6O Assa Abloy in his free time and competing in the Sydney Hobart Yacht race among others, he sent his CV to Bouwe Bekking, a Dutch sailor and skipper of Team Brunel who has sailed in seven Volvo Ocean Races.

Besides his sport activities, Rokas is also a successful businessman with a sport club chain and a social activist.
