Speakers

We are passionate about combining people and agile to create engagement, and we want to let the world know about it. So we speak about it whenever we can, at conferences, seminars and internal meetings. The members of Agile People all have a different take on what and how to create motivated employees using agile values and tools. And we love to share it with you!
