Tell me, I will forget. Show me, I may remember. But involve me, and I will understand…

To experience is to learn
Coaching has been part of Tony’s practice since the late 1990’s.
As a qualified UEFA B Football Coach, Life Coach and Certified Agile Coach, having a different set of skills in his toolbox allows for relevant experience to be shared during his sessions.
As a Project Manager, stumbling across Scrum changed the way Tony wanted to work and this built an enthusiasm for working with teams to experiment and improve their expected outcomes.
Currently working as an Agile Coach for a services company, with a background in Utilities, Finance, Aerospace and Government, Tony can bring a wealth of real-life stories to the room to assist in the practical aspects of the course.
I love to learn and teach by experiential or visual practice, as it allows me feel like I have gained experience during the session.
He is also an advocate for training content that supports dyslexic learners and advising on how to enable teaching for visual and kinaesthetic learners.
Who is Frankie?
Frankie is an experienced agile practitioner who strongly believes in the importance of having a mentor to achieve the highest levels of Mastery.
Agile concepts often look deceptively simple. It’s only when put in practice that they reveal their true complexity. That’s where the presence of a mentor can help spot mistakes and accelerate a deeper understanding.
Frankie has experience of mentoring agile practitioners at all levels: from Scrum Masters in their first experience of supporting teams to coaching squads of a dozen professionals as the lead of an agile transformation for a department of 700+ people.
He has recently started combining mentoring with coaching and training leveraging the Scrum Mastery and Product Mastery Pathways.
In 2019 Frankie discovered the magic of Visual Thinking and since then he has made visualization a foundational aspect of his facilitation & coaching work. He believes that the use of visual techniques can help drive engagement and ensure alignment on topics that are often very abstract and so very prone to be misunderstood or overlooked.
As a nice side effect his sessions are always imbued with fun.

A passion to support others in their Scrum Master training UK learning journey has inspired me to become The Scrum Mastery Pathway™ Guide. I believe that this program is different to any I have experienced before as it is focused on exploring Scrum Master’s behavioural change of being respected, enabler, nurturing and empathic rather than a framework. This pathway is a 6 month-long journey on mastery based on Geoff Watts’ book Scrum Mastery.
The past few years have been about finding self. During this period, I have come to realise the “Meaning of life“. It is about making the lives of others better. Either through coaching or mentoring or teaching or just being there when they need me.
This self-awareness has got me into learning more about professional coaching with Abhyudaya, Global Coach Circle and becoming a member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF). I am now providing Executive, Leadership and Life Coaching services. The coaching process is designed to help you achieve your personal and professional goals with support and being a partner in the process. It is about finding “self” and attaining greater fulfilment. You can book coaching sessions with me here.
Learning my own way to become a Professional Coach, I understand the importance of a dedicated pathway to reach the potential of mastery. I will be using the experience and knowledge I gained working as a Professional Coach, Scrum Master and an Agile Coach to train new Scrum Masters within an organisation or through public classes.
The pathway is based on using exploration and curiosity to enhance learning in a group. You can book a course in a completely new way to become a great Scrum Master here. You will find more information on the link.
