Agile Yorkshire: Online!

In partnership with Agile Yorkshire got some incredible speakers confirmed to discuss a topic that’s never been more relevant: keeping your distributed teams agile. Not only will attendees get a surprise delivery the week of the event, but we’re also running a short Kwizzbit quiz after the webinar, for the chance to win a £25 voucher for a local independent of your choice. The quiz will test your knowledge of Agile practices, Yorkshire, and some other random knowledge subjects thrown in for good measure!


Speakers: Jutta Eckstein, renowned author, independent coach, consultant, and trainer & Matthew Skelton, Head of Consulting at Conflux and co-author of Team Topologies: organizing business and technology teams for fast flow.

“I am thrilled to see the number of companies that are contributing to the (now virtual) Festival and the range of topics on offer.


“We have listened to the challenges that the tech community is currently facing in order to add value during the pandemic and to transfer knowledge and our planned Festival events demonstrate this. With over 70 online events on offer, this just shows how digitally robust the City is, adjusting accordingly to continue to bring the digital and tech community together, share knowledge, engage and celebrate.”
