David and Rafa are masters of making this course a real source of inspiration and starting point for new learnings to come.”

David Lowe


David is a business coach and trainer who believes that everyone has the right to improve their work and personal life, so divides his time between coaching and training individuals, teams and organisations.

He has a Postgraduate Certificate in Business & Personal Coaching from Chester University, is a PCC with the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and has a wealth of agile-related qualifications. David is heavily involved in the Agile and Lean communities, co-foundering the London Agile Discussion Group, Agile on the Bench and London Lean Coffee.

David is the author of Scrum 101: The most frequently asked questions about Agile with Scrum and The Innovation Revelation: A story about how to satisfy customer needs.



After working as a Software Developer for 11 years, Rafa Ribeiro realised that despite the knowledge he had about machines and computers, he lacked skills to empower and support other people. With the challenge of creating his own company, he felt the need to start a learning journey into the realms of Psychology, Expressive Arts and Professional Coaching.

As a result of this mixture, Rafa currently works as an Agile Coach and Professional Coach with organisations, teams, and individuals, helping them discover and becoming aware of their goals, reflecting their behaviours and supporting their growth. He has a range of deep experience working with co-located, distributed and full remote teams, as a Scrum Master, Agile Coach or Enterprise Agile Coach.
