Do you take regular or octane? Is your organization dried out and ready to refuel its innovation? Organizations fear innovative ideas and view them as costly repairs. Don’t let your transmission slip when you can learn how to foster a culture of innovation. Rebuild your transmission to maximize the 3 keys to innovation (people, process, and purpose). Join Kim Brainard for an interactive session where we explore invigorating, transformational and fun ways to innovate your organization.


Kim recently served as Co-Chair for Scrum Alliance's Global Gathering 2017. She is sometimes referred to as “Unconventional” for her creative tactics to generate transparency and encourage self-development or as the “People Whisperer” for her street-savvy style of coaching that brings out the best in people. Kim’s fusion of real-life stories and her conversational techniques connect her with people of all walks of life on an intimate, intense and individual level.

Kim believes you create your own reality by the way you think and therefore act. You cannot blame your peers, your family, or circumstances, because you are not your circumstances. You are your possibilities. If you know that, you can do anything and make the best of any situation. She has applied this analogy to her personal and professional, real-life, in-the trenches experiences. She is skilled in building interaction and collaboration among organizations and teams to drive change, support key business objectives, and maximize value creation across enterprise environments. She has extensive experience in coaching agile teams to drive releases from start to finish to support mission critical projects. She has worked in public and private sectors, coaching organizations to create a shared vision and build a strong united leadership to empower organizations to achieve a successful Agile transformation. -
