I've been with Berteig Consulting Inc. for over 5 years. Previous to this work, I taught Theatre Arts at universities in Saskatchewan and Ontario for 22 years, and I've been engaged as  a voice coach and have facilitated many diverse workshops.

I started with Berteig simply doing customer service, and as I began to learn about Agile I gained my CSM, CSPO, CALI and TKP training. Some time back I could see how the principles of theatre were aligned in many ways with agile principles, and began to research and practice.

I was given the opportunity to go into some CSM classes and deliver a few exercises re team work and soft skills, to test my ideas. I received very positive responses from these experiments, and from them developed a workshop called Agile Team Development. That also received very positivereviews.

I was part of an A-CSM class given by Mishkin Berteig. One of the participants, who works in the field as a Scrum Master, expressed the need for soft skills training for ScrumMasters. After a lengthy discussion on the topic, I was moved to develop my Soft Skills for Scrum Masters workshop, which could help enhance a Scrum master's capacity to deal with the many people and situations that arise in this work.

As well, at two Agile Coach Camps, I gave two spontaneous workshops, one on Finding Your Authentic Voice - which participants just loved! and another, Solving Team Problems with Instant Theatre - which also garnered very positive responses.

I love working with people and providing spaces and activities that enhance their capacities!
