Agile Scotland Edinburgh
March 11, 2019£80 – £95
Agile Scotland aims to make learning with local and international practitioner communities more accessible, affordable, and as inclusive as possible.
Our organizer team helps run Agile Scotland around family, day jobs, and charity work. We are thankful to be supported by fantastic associate organizers across different organizations, groups, and communities. Agile Scotland ticket prices help cover community costs; which includes venue hire, and speaker travel and accommodation. Agile Scotland redistributes excess funds from ticket sales to support local communities, underrepresented groups, and meet-ups.
Thanks to a sponsorship commitment by RBS, we are delighted to freeze ticket pricing at Early Bird.
If you’re planning on attending, please read our code of conduct: https://www.agilescotland.com/codeofconduct
In short, Agile Scotland should be a safe environment for all, and we will do everything we can to make sure that it is.
On 3rd December 2018, we welcomed Gen Ashley, Simon Wardley, Liz Keogh, Jabe Bloom, Gordon McMahon, Marc Burgauer, Chris McDermott, and host Kylie Yearsley.

Visual storytelling from Andy de Vale
I am a firm believer that there’s always another way to look at a challenge and I have been hacking things to make them work better for humans since she was a child. I am an incorrigible nomad, I’ve lived and worked in Italy and California and I am now based in London, UK.
As End-to-End (E2E) Service Design and Systems Thinking Director at Lloyds Banking Group, I focus on the creation and delivery of future-friendly services and customer outcomes that are rooted in systemic understanding and deliver value. I am driven by the opportunity to make a real impact on outcomes for both people and the organization, by looking after the big picture as well as paying attention to the very small things that to me ‘matter a lot’.
Prior to Lloyds, I was experience design director at digital agencies in London and at UCLA in California. I have a long track record of leading strategic projects for global brands, including Oracle, Sun Microsystems, CDC, UCLA, HSBC, Deutsche Bank, RBS, BUPA, The Co-operative Group, EDF, Nuffield Health and T.Rowe Price. Tries to keep up with the crazy life of her teenage daughters.

His work is international in nature and covers government and industry, looking at complex issues relating to strategy and organizational decision making. He has pioneered a science-based approach to organizations, drawing on anthropology, neuroscience and complex adaptive systems theory. He is a popular and passionate keynote speaker on a range of subjects and is well known for his pragmatic cynicism and iconoclastic style.
Dave is also is an editorial board member of several academic and practitioner journals in the field of knowledge management and is editor-in-chief of E:CO. In 2006 he was Director of the EPSRC (UK) research programme on emergence and in 2007 was appointed to an NSF (US) review panel on complexity science research.
