I have delivered public/private training and workshops in several countries across the world. My Agile/Scrum and DevOps training use effective TBR design and include stunning visuals that engage the brain and have no powerpoint slides. I continually help review world renowned speakers with their proposals and workshops designs and I bring that knowledge and expertise to my learners.
