Great ScrumMaster - with book author Zuzi Šochová


To kick off a new decade, we're absolutely stoked to have author of a book on the ScrumMaster role joining us all the way from Prague in the Czech Republic!

This talk has been a keynote at conferences in Europe so we're very lucky to have her sharing it with us down under for a small $10 donation to charity.

Please keep your RSVP up-to-date so that no-one misses out on a likely sellout event back with our friends at Macquarie.
