About this Workshop

Alf, at 6’ 6”, was tall, lanky and in his mid-50s. He was helping me clear up after his first retrospective on this team. “The conversations in these retros,” he said in his broad Essex accent. “They can be pretty raw, almost emotional.” Then he paused, and thought for a moment. “But I guess,” he said eventually, “After you have pretended to be an elephant in front of your peers, anything else goes, right?”

In this session, we'll explore how to bring excitement and fun to your retrospectives, making safe spaces that deepen the learning for your teams.

About the Speaker

John has spent most of the last 2 decades working in the software industry, with a focus on web technologies.

After 10 years as a software engineer, John moved into consultancy, where he quickly learned the value of team dynamics and how most technical challenges are projecting underlying issues with collaboration.

So his focus shifted: while still being very involved technically, he now concentrates on facilitating a safe, creative, collaborative environment.
