I have learned some of the greatest lessons through the work with Anton. He's the kind of person who keeps his calm even in the most complex of situations. He rolls up his sleeves and starts tackling the obstacles one by one. His coaching was invaluable during the web day at Here Technologies, where we were running self-organized, cross-functional, cross-platform teams.
Anton's superpower is his passion for agile - he's a walking and talking agile encyclopedia, always enthusiastically sharing his insights. His classes are interactive, well-organized, inspiring. Every little detail is thought of. He manages to break the ice between the participants almost immediately, so they open up and bring out their work challenges and frustrations which he then interprets throughout the lens of agile. I left his sessions and training inspired and full of new practical tools and know-how.
This is all backed up by Anton's long and diverse work experience. Not only he's an agile practitioner in real-world businesses, but he's also an active part of the agile community, speaking at conferences and training professionals. Story mapping, star maps, awesome team building activities, facilitation with lego, visualization of the Scrum principles, you name it - and Anton has done it and can explain it in the most accessible and fun way.
