The Leading SAFe course was not only extremely useful (in terms of content) but also delivered to a very high standard by Nick McKenna. Nick’s Software Engineering, and Agile implementation, credentials are equally as impressive as his training style. Highly recommended.

Paul Yeomans – Managing Director, Manifestly Important

Nick is a well informed and interesting speaker and we gained as much, if not more, from his additional stories and talking to him than the course content itself.
