Ryan began his career in 1999 as a software developer and gradually gravitated towards project and programme management in the e-commerce industry where he spent the first 12 years of his career. Becoming increasingly disillusioned by the systems in place that seemed to prevent people from being happy and creative at work, he left to do an MBA at Warwick University where he wrote his dissertation on the effectiveness of Lean-Agile ways of working in the e-commerce industry. He subsequently trained as a personal coach and re-entered the corporate world as a Lean-Agile coach and trainer. He has helped to train, transform and transition teams and departments to Lean-Agile ways of working in UK, Canada, and Germany. Industries span retail, supply chain, publishing, government, travel, packaged software, investment banking, and wealth management.

I have always wanted to help people. To understand how people think, how things work and how I can make things better. When I was 12 I decided to be a doctor, but life seems to have had other ideas!
9 years ago someone introduced me to Agile, and the role of Scrum Master. I had finally found a way to take everything I loved about medicine and apply it in a different way to help people. Since then my vocation has been to learn how to make the workplace better. To make it effective, efficient and fulfilling.
I have spent the last nine years learning and applying Agile and Lean principles. I appreciate that every company is different, and every team has unique needs. I take a holistic approach to support my clients. I draw on almost a decade of knowledge and practical experience. And I am grateful to have been able to help many businesses improve how they work already.
I now focus on the wider challenges that businesses face: Complexity, knowledge and adaptability. I also draw on my medical background to see how people can bring every aspect of themselves to the workplace. I draw on themes of wellness and positive psychology and apply them in the workplace.
By 2020 the creative knowledge economy will disrupt your business like never before. Through a process of experimentation, learning and improvement I can help your organisation adapt. Send me a message to find out how.
