"If you’re a coach or Scrum Master finding that your online sessions aren’t working so well or are stuck in a rut running the same old formats again and again, Dana’s “Agile Facilitation/Training – Virtual Edition” course is likely to be the boost to your facilitation toolkit that you need. Dana has figured out lots of clever tricks to use tools such as Zoom, Mural and Mentimeter to create highly engaging collaborative workshops and training. Even better, you’ll gain techniques for many of the rich Liberating Structures in the virtual world. You even get to design workshops that string several structures together to achieve surprising results. I took many small and large techniques away from this course that I’ll be applying straight away."

Rowan Bunning, Managing Principal, Scrum WithStyle (Australia)
