Biography

Emma Burgess - I work for the Lloyd's of London insurance market, based (funnily enough!) in the city of London. I started working for Lloyd's in 2003 at the age of 17 and fulfilled a number of different roles in the IT department, before finding my "home" in the project management arena. I attended the 3 day Certified Scrum Master course back in 2007, which was led by Ken Schwaber and Mike Cohn and I've been hooked ever since! I also attended the Agile Estimating and Planning course and a number of in-house Agile training sessions.

I have now taken the role of Scrum Master on around 5 projects of varying sizes and complexities and each time I seem to learn more about working in agile way. I'm hoping to attend the Product Owner training in 2012 and continue to educate and motivate Scrum project teams within Lloyd's.
