Introduction to Liberating Structures
Are you tired of boring meetings which go on and on and never quite get to the point? Are you fed up with the same old people speaking up all the time? Would you like to harness the creativity and intelligence of everyone in the room, whilst having more fun? If so, Liberating Structures are for you. They are simple rules for groups, designed to include everyone in shaping the future. They’ve been developed and field tested over the past 10+ years in a variety of settings including healthcare, education, business and government. Based on pioneering work to apply complexity science in business and organisational settings. David and Iwona will offer an interactive ‘taster’ experience of some of the key Liberating Structures of the repertoire. You’ll get an idea of the range and power of the repertoire and how you apply them to your own work as a scrum master or agile coach. David Heath ( is a Lead Developer at the UK Government Digital Service and also runs the London Liberating Structures Meetup. Iwona Winiarska is an Agile Delivery Manager at the UK Government Digital Service and coorganises agile meetups and conferences in London. Thank you to Norton Blake for sponsoring this meetup.

What we're about

We run regular meet ups geared towards information and knowledge sharing. We have a strong focus on agile delivery, so many of our meetups reflect being and doing agile from a delivery and project management perspective. We often have major speakers take the stage, lively Q&A's, games workshops for learning and other events all oriented around creating an active professional community where we can learn and share with each other.

We're a friendly group of professionals with a mixed level of experience, and we do our best to ensure that discussions are kept lively and fun.

DPML are proud supporters of Agnostic Agile: (
