Colin Sweetman
Consultant at VREF Consultants.
Langford, UK


I grew up in London, in the UK.  After a succession of jobs including motorcycle despatch rider, engineering apprentice and typewriter mechanic, I spent nine years with the UK Armed Forces.

I organised and led charity expeditions to Nepal, India and Tanzania, helped run a flying school and air charter operation, and finally moved into the tech industry as a freelance computer graphics and 3D animator, before transitioning into web development.

Ulimately, I've evolved into an experienced Agile/Scrum coach.

I have 20 years experience in the technology sector, working with startups, corporations like Microsoft and Chevron Texaco, Government Departments and everything in between. 

I am not a theoretician or evangelist. I bring pragmatic, sensible thinking based on real world experience of delivery from the trenches of technology projects and programmes.

I’ll work with you and your teams, to support, coach, train and mentor to get you sharp focus on product and service delivery in your organisation.

I’ll provide realistic insight and actionable step by step plans to your management team to help them energise the way concepts become reality quickly without sacrificing quality.

If you need focussed advice, training, or troubleshooting, on an individual level or for your organisation, I deliver value. My motivation is to help individuals and teams become as highly performing as possible.
