Duncan is incredibly passionate about Agile project management and Scrum in particular, in addition to this he is a very enthusiastic trainer… the combination is both powerful and effective. The feedback we had from every one of the attendees was exemplary

Nigel West, Principal Consultant at Synechron UK

Duncan’s course started my professional interest in Scrum. His enthusiasm and passion for the subject matter motivated me in pursuing the subject further. I would highly recommend Duncan’s training to any Scrum practitioner whether they are new to Agile techniques or not….

James Quantrell, PSM III Scrum Master

Duncan gave us the guidance and mentorship we needed to get up and running. We saw so much improvement after implementing his suggestions. It’s still a journey… but it’s great to know that we have someone like Duncan there to back us up as we grow out our own framework!

Alexis Mello, Scrum Master, Venturi Group New York

Duncan’s experience was so useful as he was able to answer questions with a great deal of insight and personal experience whilst also providing an enjoyable and informal environment to learn in. I’d highly recommend one of Duncan’s training courses.

David Stewart, PSM I, Technical Architect, Schroders

If you want to participate in sessions that are both informative and practical but that are also fun and effective then Duncan’s courses will be perfect for you. With Duncan’s help you will be able to adapt the Scrum framework more effectively in your team.
