Although best known for my long association with Scrum, I love everything Lean, Agile and Kanban. I get a buzz out of catalysing new ideas, collaboration, creativity and innovation to engage the full potential of teams and leadership.​

​I am a ‘Fearless Organisation Certified Practitioner’, a member of the TAC (Trainer Approval Community) for the Scrum Alliance and a collaborator on ScaleAgility, a Principles Led approach to applying Agile at scale.​

Away from work, I try and squeeze in way too many sports and hobbies: road cycling up mountains, trail running with my dog, sailing, skiing, diving and lots of DIY projects!
