Workshops, training and public speaking

I regularly provide workshops and training sessions and conference keynotes, talks, and tutorials (you can find the one’s that I’ve done in my past events and my publications).

I also do private in-house workshops, which are tailored to the specific situation and needs of your company. These workshops help teams and organizations to increase their effectiveness and agility and to deliver more value. Contact me to discuss the possibilities!

Some examples of workshops and training that I do are:

I’m also an experienced organizer and facilitator of events, networks and meetups, an active member of several networks on Agile, Lean and Quality, and a frequent conference speaker (keynotes, tutorials, mini workshops and regular talks). See my presentations.

Testimonials

Ben provided training for our Product Owners and Scrum Masters and it was a great experience for all involved. I was familiar with some of Ben’s publications prior to working with him, but I was still impressed by his vast knowledge, professionalism and genuine interest in understanding our pain points in order to tailor the course to address our specific needs. I would recommended Ben services, to any team that wants to genuinely improve.

As part of the agile transformation my client is in right now, we invited Ben to inspire us with an engaging session. I consider Ben as one of the very best Agile coaches in Holland and he did not disappoint us! He understands his audience and translates the agile/scrum theory with such an ease to a client specific context. His style of presentating is very enjoyable and it doesn’t matter for Ben to talk at big conferences or for smaller audiences (60 people); he connects with the people and shares so much knowledge and experience. After the session a lot of people were discussing and smiling. I would recommend Ben to everybody!

It doesn’t matter if you are starting with Agile or have scaled your enterprise to work in an Agile way; Ben can help you in every stage of your agile journey!

I have known Ben Linders for many years and more recently had the pleasure of working closely with him to organise three co-located conferences in Netherlands focused on software development and process improvement. Ben has been fantastic collaborator in the event – his deep knowledge of the subject matter, latest trends and the marketplace in general is impressive and it is clear he has a genuine passion for better process improvement. Ben is one of the first people we contacted with the idea of holding conferences in mainland Europe – right from the start he was an invaluable source of sound advice; always open and willing to share his thoughts and ideas, culminating in him chairing the Process Improvement conference, presenting and leading the experts panel. Ben is a super guy to work with and I highly recommend him.
