I’ve spent the last 26 years in IT and business transformation and have recently joined Radtac as Head of Public Sector. During my relatively short time with them I have come to realise that you can draw many parallels between Agile and your life experiences. Below, I will share with you a personal story about sailing and particularly what my daughter made me realise.

After a twenty-year hiatus from any serious sailing following the completion of my Yacht Master qualification at Cowes, the bug has bitten me again following a couple of very enjoyable boating activities this year.
