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.
