Client Testimonials

Don’t take my word for it – here’s what my clients say:

Coaching & Classes that are more than PowerPoint

Putting together Scrum.org Scrum Training and Co-Active Coaching with Visual Facilitation.
I believe in providing an experience, that corrects myths and misconceptions in a style that is engaging and thought provoking. 

CO-ACTIVE COACHING – Professional Coaching

I provide 1:1 coaching, using the techniques taught by the Co-Active Training Institute.  Throughout my career there have been times when I wished I had the option to work with a coach so that I can decide what my next steps should be.  

The coaching model taught and employed by Co-Active Training is the most widely used model in the coaching industry. Their scientifically based methodology provides a simple, intuitive framework for human interaction that creates profound results.

Co-Active Coaching is a cultural and business phenomen that helped launch the professional practice of coaching. If you’re looking for a Professional Coach, lets talk and see if we can work together…


BIKABLO– Visual Facilitation

Bikablo “Whether as a trainer or as a facilitator – we use visualization for targeted purposes, to enrich communication, strengthen dialogue, and give structure to thoughts.”

With pen in hand, an ever-growing number of people are using visualisation to secure common knowledge, explain strategies and processes, connect specialists, and develop smarter products.

I have spent many hours in training rooms staring a dull presentation, with one eye on the clock waiting for it to be over. That’s why I try to break out of the mould, present the key lessons in a way that stays with the attendees; suggesting people move around, have conversations and capture the output visually. There is something about being visual that helps to retain the information.

Your Trainer

All Professional Scrum Trainers use the same highly-tuned and standardised Scrum.org courseware. Trainers bring their own style and experience to their courses, but using consistent materials ensures that all PSTs are delivering the same high-quality content to each and every student regardless of which PST teaches the course and where it is taught.
