Gez Smith has been working in agile and scrum since 2005, variously as a developer, product owner, scrum master and agile coach. He sold and product owned the first agile / scrum development project ever run by the UK Government’s COI, the forerunner of what became GOV.UK, and has worked in agile and scrum for organisations including 10 Downing Street, the BBC Trust, Lloyds Banking Group and Glastonbury Festivals.
In early 2016 he graduated with a distinction from an MSc in Strategy, Change and Leadership at Bristol University, during which he specialised in agile research, with a final thesis entitled ‘Using Agile Approaches To Deliver Marketing Communications - An Exploratory
Study’. He also published his second book, entitled ‘Agile Marketing: The Incomplete Guide’, which can be downloaded for free from www.bunnypicnic.co.uk/book.
A CSM and CSP, he enjoys speaking at conferences, events and scrum user group meetups, as well as freelancing as a CSM or agile coach.
He also loves hearing from fellow agile practitioners and thinkers. Do tweet or email him to say hello :-)
