What people are saying about the Work Together Anywhere Workshop

“We piloted the Work Together Anywhere workshop with several teams at Rabobank. I can see a difference between the teams who took the workshop and the teams that didn’t. Teams who followed the workshop are having more effective remote stand-up meetings, retrospectives and planning sessions. They meet on time with fewer technical difficulties and use a digital board to make work visible and track progress. It’s no longer a big deal for them to be remote.”
– Robbert Windsant (Scrum master at Rabobank)
“My team adopted some of the tools we learned about in the Work Together Anywhere workshop and it has made our weekly calls so much more engaging.”
– Cedric Borzee (Learning Services Director | CrossKnowledge UKI & Nordics – Member of Wiley Group)
“The Work Together Anywhere workshop has helped us immeasurably in building a successful & happy new distributed team.”
– Mark Wightman (CTO at cloudhub360.com)
“The Work Together Anywhere Workshop gives you facts based on the large amount of interviews… with the actual experiences from the people who are really successful.”
– Johan Nyberg (Change and Transformation Leadership | Agile Enterprise Coach | Management Trainer | Lean & Agile Governance)
