Keynote 2013, Dan North, Jackstones, Journey to Mastery

In 2013 we were delighted to welcome Dan North to the conference, watch his keynote and read his thoughts and experiences of Agile on the Beach.

“Agile on the Beach was a fun and informative couple of days in Cornwall. Informal yet well-organised, it brought together some 200 locals and visitors for two days of talks and workshops with a broad range of speakers.” Dan North, 2013

ukigoshi-600Thanks to Dan for this gif animation of him and James Lewis from Thoughtworks getting agile on the beach with a Uki Goshi throw!

Dan continues “Sessions included games (with a serious message) and speakers included product development and facilitation experts as well as reknowned agile practitioners. This made it difficult to choose between parallel sessions a number of times – a great problem to have! I enjoyed myself as both a speaker and an attendee, and I definitely intend to return.”

A special thank you from the Agile on the Beach team to Dan North & James Lewis for enjoying Agile on the Beach 2013 so much!
