Incredible Team speakers at Agile on the Beach

Agile on the Beach returns to Falmouth this year to host 30 UK and International Agile speakers in a one of a kind conference on the Cornish coast. Taking place on the 5th and 6th of September, Agile on the Beach is a two day business and technology conference with a difference.

The conference brings together 200 people to explore, evolve and find out what it means to be truly agile in business; from its culture to product development practices.
Agile on the Beach offers the chance to engage with the UK’s leading thinkers in agile adoption and evolution and explore the latest agile and lean thinking. The conference also offers ample networking opportunities, such as the fantastic beach party on Falmouth’s famous Gyllyngvase Beach.

The conference explores three strands of agile adoption – Software Craftsmanship, Business Strategy and Teams. This year we welcome speakers on the adoption of Agile in mainstream businesses, and Agile in a marketing team, as well as sustaining our core technical theme.
