Simon is an outstanding agile trainer and an empathic agile coach. He has a vast software development experience and is a fantastic storyteller. Simon skillfully introduces agile concepts and practices and knows exactly how to bring his ideas across. What fascinates me most about Simon is his ability to connect with people and get a detailed sense of their needs. He shares a wealth of experience, knowledge, techniques and approaches and sows seeds of insights and a deeper understanding of Agile and Lean, that truly grow and transform the way one works and collaborates. Shortly said, if you really want to transform to agile, Simon is your man!
I attended a class held by Simon in 2014 and went away understanding how important personal training and face to face teaching is. Simon is a great teacher who challenges standard thinking and can explain complexity in easy words. Simon draws from his vast experience, substantial knowledge of Agile and Scrum methodologies and excels in teaching by storytelling. His teaching approach is diversified and he is happy to challenge his audience. I can recommend him as a coach.
I worked together with Simon at the agile enterprise transition of the Deutsche Telekom P&I. Simon was a senior consultant and lead this enterprise transition. Simon is like a deep lake of agile knowledge and experience, and it was a pleasure to work with him together. I would very much like to work with him together again!
