Meet The Core Team

Welcome to the AWA Core Team Page

We believe that agile and lean working can improve the way we make products and services, which has the knock-on effect of making our lives better at work and home. Each day we work in different ways to help our clients, colleagues and community towards our vision.

When we’re not onsite at our consultancy clients, organising our various monthly events and training, or pitching for consultancy work, we’re sharing and supporting our fellow coaches and scrum masters on the AWA Support Network or learning together as a team on our fortnightly internal Continuous Improvement day.


Our Full Time Coaches

Our full time coaching team are experienced and motivated Agile Coaches and Scrum Masters. They’re engaged with our clients who are at varying stages of their agile transformation. The team includes Lloyd Jones, Russell Smith, Chris West,  Philiy Lander, Dan Brown and Andy Leonard.

Our Leadership Team

Simon Powers originally founded AWA back in October 2014 to provide a forum to tackle the problems multi-team, and organisational coaches face during an agile adoption. Today Simon is often out on site at our clients working as an organisational coach.

Heather Powers is the backbone of AWA by managing important details like logistics, finances and contracts. A necessary evil for which we’re eternally grateful!

Charley Allen takes care of our training, events and marketing and works closely with Mika Peck who looks after our consultancy work, contractors and pitches. These are the people to speak with to find out more about our events, training and consultancy or how to work for/with us.
