One of my greatest passions is helping others discover new information by speaking and teaching at private or public events. My workshops vary in length, with topics either coming from my existing repertoire or customized to your needs.  If you’re interested in having me speak at your event please contact me to discuss it.

Speaking Topics

The topics currently available are:

  • Responsibility at the core of a great life & career
  • Shifting the value you deliver into high gear
  • Need to speed up?   Then slow down!  A practical introduction to Kanban
  • An in depth Kanban workshop
  • The Lean PMO – Oxymoron or Possible?
  • How Agile saved my life
  • If you were in a room with an elephant would you know it? (how humans can look right at the obvious and not see it)
  • Myths, legends and (mis)understandings – An introduction to Lean & Agile
  • Being agile while standing in a Waterfall

And more being added all the time!
