Tony Richards is an agile coach at Aviva in the United Kingdom.
As an agile coach, he gained early exposure to lean and agile thinking whilst working with Toyota in the early '90s. Since then, Tony has coached a variety of teams across IT, marketing, finance and corporate strategy to find growth and self-organisation through the application of agile principles.
Using the wisdom Lyssa Adkins and Michael Spayd shared with him, he has developed a coaching and mentoring style that compliments his facilitation and training of teams also using Sharon Bowman's training from the back of the room (TFTBOTR) techniques.
He holds PSM & SAFe certifications and is an ICAgile Certified Professional in agile coaching.
Tony spends a considerable amount of his voluntary time supporting diversity and inclusion across teams and society. He has been privileged enough to work with Beyond the Classroom and Amos Bursary in helping others find personal growth.
He can be found on the Scrum Master Toolbox podcast.
