John Le Drew has spent most of the last 2 decades working in the software industry, with a focus on web technologies. After 10 years as a software engineer John moved into consultancy where he quickly learned the value of team dynamics and how most technical challenges are projecting underlying issues with collaboration. While still being very involved technically, his first focus is on facilitating a safe, creative, collaborative environment.
John hosts and produces the well-respected Agile Path podcast where he creates in-depth audio documentaries on the topics that most affect organisations transitioning to agile ways of working and other critical issues. The first season focuses on the effect of psychological safety (or the lack there of) on organisations and wider society. This has led to many speaking engagements across the UK, US and Europe.
John’s approach is focused on helping organisations create an environment that fosters creative collaboration. He is known for his infectious passion and sense of humour that brings in a much-needed injection of energy to unmotivated, challenged teams.
