Your Trainers:

Dana Pylayeva: 

I am an independent Agile/DevOps coach and trainer from New York City. I've been in IT for over 18 years as a developer, DBA manager, coach, trainer. I started my own Agile Play Consulting, LLC in 2018 and now work with teams in US, Canada, Ireland, Japan and UK. 

Training from the Back of the Room is one of my favourite tools for creating psychological safety in the class and maximizing learning retention. After being introduced to TBR, I've redesigned my very own "Introduction to DevOps with LEGO and Chocolate" game and have presented it at 35 conferences in 15 countries.  In every one of those places, people enjoy being engaged in the class, staying alert and focused as well as having fun while learning. 

TBR helped me grow professionally as well as contribute to agile community in a very meaningful way.

I have been a reviewer, a track chair with many regional and international conferences, I founded Big Apple Scrum Day conference in New York and now I am a program chair at Agile2019 conference by Agile Alliance.

I am excited to pair up with Anil Jaising in bringing the TBR workshop to you! Can't wait to welcome you to international community of TBR practitioners.

Anil Jaising: 

I am Anil Jaising and I am an executive and a public speaker in a technology organization. My role is focused on Agile, product management and organizational change and I am charged with changing mindsets of senior executives and teams. From the beginning of my career in 1993, I realized that if I wanted my audience to experience and learn my ideas, I have to deliver impactful presentations.

TBR has dramatically changed how I deliver my workshops and the impact it has made on my audience. I recently created an experiential workshop “The 3 ways of DevOps” using the 4Cs that have had rave reviews in both Agile Alliance 2018 and Scrum Alliance 2018.

All my speaking, training and workshops now focuses on sharing my real life experiences with TBR techniques. My mission is to teach TBR both in class and embedded in my workshops to engage audiences and improve how they communicate and teach. Twitter @aniljaising will get feedback from the TBR trainers.
