About the Author

Born in the UK, and with a degree in Computer Science, Paul traveled the world and worked as a software developer for nearly 10 years before finally settling in New Zealand. He began looking for a better way to build software after one fateful project that ticked all the boxes, yet failed to deliver what the customer needed. That search led him to help grow one of New Zealand's first Agile software teams. As word of the team's success spread, he also began training other teams and organizations in all things Agile. He currently works with the teams at New Zealand's largest online auction and trading marketplace. He speaks nationally and internationally, shares coaching insights on his blog, co-hosts monthly meet-ups, and is often seen wisely stroking his beard.
