I enjoy mentoring new and aspiring Scrum Masters and Agile Coaches, so I thought I’d collect these resources and recommendations together.
I was an organiser for Liberating Structures London for two years. If you’d like to experience different ways of having better interactions with people, check out events by one of the many user groups, most of them are free.

I’m a regular member at Black Scrum Masters London. We always have such interesting themes, and often I have some related links I’d like to share. You can find these below.
