I believe in the importance and value of building inclusive, empowered,
sustainable teams and have experienced the challenges of nurturing the
cultures, skills and practices that enable teams and individuals to achieve
their full capabilities.
I use my experience, beliefs and skills to help organisations overcome the
challenges they face in building more effective and inclusive software
In practice this includes:
