Effective yet Effortless Coaching Talk at Shopify

I introduced The Simple Coaching Model publicly, and for the first time, as part of delivering the "Effective Yet Effortless Coaching" session. The session was held at Shopify. I presented for an audience of more than 100 people. The audience consisted of Team Leads, Agile Coaches, Scrum Masters and Project Managers.

AgileOntario Talk on Standardization & Processes

I spoke at the Agile Ontario Meetup on December 10th. I talked about standardization of practices and processes amongst teams and their affect on the organization, alongside with Fernando Cuenca.


We have talked two hours almost on that topic. We have touched many aspects related to the standardization, teams, and effects of it. As you might guess, it is not that narrow. You can have a look at all the topics we talked about at "Leading Conversation at AgileOntario about Standardization in Agile"


Gatineau-Ottawa Agile Tour 2016 (GOAT2016)

I have participated at GOAT2016, a great Agile conference for the Gatineau and Ottawa area in 2016. This conference attracts more than 500 people over the Monday, 21st of November 2016.

Jesus, Lidia and Myself volunteered our time and experience to share and exchange ideas with the participants. We helped participants to realise what their underlying problem is, what Agile meant to them and what are the steps they need to take to become Agile. We were helping them at the Coaches’ Corner where it was conveniently located at the bright open space. The screenshot is attached below.
