Our Roots

Image: Forrest

For many years we have helped people and organisations discover and apply their potential by passing on the knowledge we have gained through the Latvian National Armed Forces School, by educating children and adults, and by providing consulting services to organisations in Latvia and Europe.

The Saliedēt.lv partners have been friends and colleagues for over fifteen years, together creating offers for and organising educational projects, outdoor activities and team training events. During this time we have come to understand our strengths and have become a strong team capable of accomplishing very much.

Over the last years we have added other professionals to our team who share our desire to help people develop their potential to their fullest. This allows us to offer a wider range of services and thus expand our target audience. We develop and organise everything from sports games to team building events, from educational activities for youths to organisation coaching, from team training events in the forest to e-learning. We are able to organise events in rural Latvia, in Riga, or practically anyplace throughout Europe.

Our foremost care is for the client, the employee, and the environment. As we evaluate each person's and team's possibilities, we encourage their co-responsibility in all aspects of our activities, because we believe that this is the key to effective and sustainable change.

To successful cooperation!

"You can't create experience; you undergo it." (Albert Camus)
