Testimonials

Each year, Agile Tour London offers one impactful day for any level of agile enthusiast. We work hard to build a diverse programme with something for everyone — inspiring talks, hands-on workshops, engaging networking, and more. But don’t take our word for it, read what former #ATLDN attendees have said!

'It was very interesting to hear some of the behaviours I have observed in my company being articulated as echoes across most of the talks I attended. This did bring some of the magnitude of what we are trying to undertake (and I am helping to facilitate) at our company, into focus. This being said there was something I came to realise that I was certainly not expecting: Even though we are only about seven months into our agile journey, we have managed to achieve much more than I gave us credit for!

'If any of my colleagues happens to be reading this: You are doing AWESOME! Thank you!'
— Nathan Rhodes, Scrum Master at CloudPay

‘In its 5th edition, with 30 sessions by 35 speakers, Agile Tour London 2017 had something for everyone, covering almost all aspects of Agile, from Agile UX, DevOps, Neuroscience to Agile Outside IT.

'The always amazing Dan Brown gave a great start to the day with his awesome key speech on The Journey to Continuous Delivery and increasing business agility.’

'The compact one-day format and London location make Agile Tour a very practical and effective event. At the 2017 event, I learned consent-based rather than consensus-based decision making as a better way to make things happen, the RAT acronym for product owners — riskiest assumption to test — to help them prioritise their hypotheses, and focusing on small batch size for Lean or Agile delivery at scale. It made for a good summary of common obstacles to continuous delivery.'
Greg Franklin, Agile Lead at Cancer Research UK

‘What made it different to the other conferences I have attended? Well, for a start it is only one day, which is unusual in a calendar stuffed full of multi-day events. They did have four tracks, so there was a fair amount of content to choose between. Making that choice was quite difficult on several occasions! 

'Another thing I noticed was how it felt very much about actual practitioners of agile, rather than theorists or consultants. This was reflected in the attendees I met, and I thank them all for sharing their interesting stories with me. I knew relatively few people there, which in many ways was great. This meant I had lots of time to meet new people. Now I can look forward to catching up with them and having a chat next time we meet too.

'Agile Tour London had a different vibe to other conferences I have been to this year. It wasn’t so much a community as it was a collective. A collaborative, learning environment: Student-y in all the best ways.’
