ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR


 
Stuart Turner is an international keynote speaker, having spoken at numerous international conferences, the largest being a plenary session for 1,100 delegates at the Global Scrum Gathering in Orlando, USA, 2016.

He has incredible passion for increasing the vitality of workplaces and creating the conditions for people to be highly effective and fulfilled. Much research shows such workplaces are typically much more financially successful than those mostly focussed on profit, so Stuart believes all work will eventually be performed in such environments. He's just helping people and organisations achieve the benefits sooner.
