ABOUT OUR TRAINERS

JUDY REES

Author, speaker, consultant, trainer and coach based in London, UK. Leading on distributed diversity and communication clarity in complex contexts.

I’m a facilitator, coach and trainer – mostly working over the internet. Not long ago I facilitated what was probably the world’s first “video unconference” in which 150 people self-organised to talk about the things that mattered to them.

I’m the co-author of a bestselling book, “Clean Language”, which describes a precision inquiry toolkit which works especially well in complex systems. I coach using this methodology, and I also teach Clean Language to Agile coaches and others, mostly online. I’m the co-founder of the Rees McCann Partnership.
