Trainer: Sophie Manton
Sophie is a coach and trainer who is passionate about uncovering the “difference that’ll make the difference” in order to help support and encourage positive growth in individuals, teams and organisations.
Her early career as a developer gave her invaluable first-hand knowledge and insights into producing the software itself, but it was her experiences of project management coupled with “in the thick of it” Scrum Mastering and organisational change remits that really caught her imagination and enthusiasm for people and system dynamics.
She facilitates effective change by tailoring her approach depending on where a company is along its own unique journey. She utilises appropriate core Agile & Lean principles and techniques and in particular provides support with the cultural and behavioural challenges often faced when adapting to a more transparent and collaborative Agile way of working. This is invariably done with a large dose of focus, fun and energy!
Sophie is a Certified Scrum Professional (CSP-SM & CSP-PO), an Association of Neuro Linguistic Programming (ANLP) Certified NLP Trainer as well as an experienced Institute for Leadership & Management (ILM) accredited coach. She is also a member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF). Sophie has extensive experience having worked with numerous companies across financial, retail and engineering sectors.
