I am very actively involved with the Agile community within Auckland as a committee member for Agile Auckland (APN). I help Agile Auckland organise workshops with local and international speakers. I have been involved in successfully establishing Agile/Scrum practices in multiple organizations. I am involved in assessment of Agile readiness, developing and executing plan for agile adoption and periodic reviews of successful agile implementation.  

With my recent real-world experience in various roles combined with the ability to drive home complex concepts in an easy to understand manner make me an amazing resource to get any team at any level best focused on project related initiatives. I have successfully delivered change within many diverse environments and been working in agile space since 2008.
