Dana James-EdwardsFounder of Diversity Dana

Many, many years ago (after the dinosaurs but before Facebook was launched), Dana started her career in Big 4 Consultancy. She joined teams delivering large-scale, transformational technology change programmes using Agile ways of working, before working more exclusively as an Agile Trainer.

Dana’s experiences as an immigrant, woman of colour working in a technical field ignited her inner social justice warrior. She formed and led employee groups and started programmes to address socio-economic privilege in the graduate and apprentice new hire schemes before ultimately transitioning her career to work in Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (ED&I) full time.

Today she is a breath of fresh air in the world of ED&I. Her novel approach involves the use of Agile principles and ways of working to help organisations build diverse brands and inclusive cultures where team members want to stick around.

Dana has worked across a wide range of industries and organisations - from startups to government agencies, leading consultancies and titans of industry. Her projects include developing and deploying ED&I programmes and initiatives, designing and delivering learning, shaping policies and helping companies get to grips with their diversity reality by uncovering and providing solutions for the things getting in the way of creating a workforce reflective of the wider world we live in.

She excels at creating safe spaces for open discussion where people can explore, enquire and expand their own understanding. Unafraid to speak her mind and with compassionate sharing of lived experiences and humorous heartfelt honesty, she is sought after as a trainer and facilitator and conference speaker all around the world.

Abiodun OsobaFounder & CEO of The Agile Advisor Africa

Abiodun 'Abby' Osoba is an International Business Agility Coach and Trainer. She believes that being Agile is about a state of heart beyond being about a mere state of mind; It is this heart that makes Transformation happen and evolve until it becomes an organic interwoven part of a company's culture and employee default behavior.

She has spent the last 20 years of her life as a Management Consultant, crossing industries such as banking, insurance, telecommunication, entertainment, non-profit, utilities, education, legal, agriculture, pharmaceuticals, and of course IT. Her sweet spot is Organizational Transformation, not just because of her experience in adapting Agile best practices to an organizations ideal state. Put simply, there is nothing greater than starting to see all the “arhah” moments happening with teams, executives, and middle management. It tends to be like a domino effect that had once seemed impossible.

Abiodun is also an experienced executive Agile coach, trainer, and international speaker. She specializes in advising organizations on how to work with Agile at scale, business agility and leadership coaching. She supports sustainable Agile transformations through the delivery of structured programs to build internal Agile capabilities.

She partners with other groups and colleagues to help deliver value whenever and wherever she can. Abiodun is blessed to go to work every day pursuing one of her many passions. She shares it with others through training, coaching, writing, and mentoring. She loves to learn from others and share ideas. Abiodun's other passion is to foster a spirit of service and civic engagement and to encourage more people she believes that it is her responsibility to encourage, inspire and motivate others to be the best that they can be. Her mission is to pay it forward.

Arlette VercammenCo-Founder and Co-Facilitator at Okaloa

Arlette is passionate about “going upstream”. In the early 90’s, not long after graduating from university, she founded MediaGenix to use Smalltalk and object-oriented technology to develop complex software for broadcasters. Back in those days, this was certainly not “going with the flow”. During the 10+ years at the helm of MediaGenix, she gained quite some hands-on experience with agile ways of working. In 2012 she started, together with Patrick Steyaert, Okaloa to help organisations become successful with lean agile. Since the inception of Okaloa, both Patrick and Arlette got immersed in the fascinating world of the functioning of the brain, especially in the context of learning. Their enthusiasm for helping people, teams, and organisations in adopting new ways of working led to the co-creation of Okaloa Flowlab, a constraint-enabled learning platform. Rather than going with the flow of teaching methods, Patrick and Arlette take people upstream inspiring curiosity to thinking about new ways of working.
