Live Webinars: Tell Me What You Think – Politely Please ;)

Hi everyone. Lately I’ve been thinking about doing a series of webinars. But I’m not sure what people would find most interesting, so I’d really like to know what you think?

The ideas I have so far are:

  • 10 Key Principles of Agile
  • 60 Minute Scrum Master (Scrum Primer)
  • Writing Good User Stories
  • Agile Estimating – The Secret to Delivering On Time
  • 10 Things Leaders Need To Do Differently (In Agile)
  • Ask Kelly – Open Q&A

I’m working on the assumption that each webinar will be about 60 minutes and delivered live, rather than recorded.

I’m also thinking of charging for them.  I’ve given a huge amount of content to the community for free over the last 5 years or so, but I thought live presentation would be worth a small charge.  Of course that’s also something I’d like your feedback on.

So please let me know what you think?  Would you be interested in attending?  Which topic (or topics) interest you the most? (whether it’s on the above list or not).  What would you be willing to pay?  And what timezone are you in?

I’d be very grateful if you’d be willing to spend a few minutes giving me your feedback.  Please comment below or email me direct on [email protected].

Many thanks

  1. Good idea. I would suggest a staircase charge e.g. first 25 registrations pay negligible amount, next 25 registrations get 80% discount, next 25 registrations get 60% discount and so on. Otherwise, everyone postpones registration to the last moment and we are not sure even 2 days before as to what will be the attendance.

    1. I would be very interested in attending
    2. Topics:
    a. Writing Good User Stories
    b. Exploratory Testing with Agile
    c. Ask Kelly – Open Q&A
    3. Fee for webinar – my company will most likely not pay, if payment is required I would need to pay it out of my own pocket
    4. Timezone – USA – Central Time Zone

    Writing Good User Stories

    I would attend and would pay.

    I also think it would be great. Go for it! I would be particularly interested in hearing about strategies for doing range estimating before detailed stories are written. You know, to satisfy the client’s request for a ‘ball park’ quote before anyone really knows anything.

    I think is a great idea, however one first free episode would be good, to attract the audience and for you to practice and get important feedbacks. This way everyone will be sure that the material is of high quality. Spread the word then put a price on it, that’s my suggestion.

    I LOVE the idea and like all of the topics. I’m working on my team’s training budget right now and unfortunatley the budget isn’t there to pay a lot of money. But a nominal charge would seem reasonable. However if you’re going to charge me I’d like it to be recorded so that I could refernce the content/discussion later as well.

What People Say

“Kelly revolutionised the way our digital department operated. A true advocate of agile principles, he quickly improved internal communication within our teams and our internal clients by aligning our business and creating a much enhanced sense of transparency in the decisions the business was making. Kelly also introduced a higher sense of empowerment to the development teams...”


“Kelly’s a leading program director with the ability to take charge from day one and keep strong momentum at both a program and project level driving prioritisation, resourcing and budgeting agendas. Kelly operates with an easy-going style and possesses a strong facilitation skill set. From my 5 months experience working with Kelly, I would recommend Kelly to program manage large scale, complex, cross company change programs both from a business and IT perspective.”


“Kelly is an extremely talented and visionary leader. As such he manages to inspire all around him to achieve their best. He is passionate about agile and has a wealth of experience to bring to bear in this area. If you're 'lucky' he might even tell you all about his agile blog. Above all this, Kelly is great fun to work with. He is always relaxed and never gets stressed - and trust me, he had plenty of opportunity here! If you get the chance to work with Kelly, don't pass it up.”


“Kelly is an Agile heavy-weight. He came in to assess my multi-million $ Agile development program which wasn’t delivering the right throughput. He interviewed most of the team and made some key recommendations that, when implemented, showed immediate results. I couldn’t ask for more than that except he’s a really nice guy as well.”


“Kelly and I worked together on a very large project trying to secure a new Insurer client. Kelly had fantastic commercial awareness as well as his technical expertise. Without him I would never had secured this client so I owe a lot to him. He is also a really great guy!”


“Kelly came to the department and has really made a huge impact on how the department communicates, collaborates and generally gets things done. We were already developing in an agile way, but Kelly has brought us even more into alignment with agile and scrum best practices, being eager to share information and willing to work with us to change our processes rather than dictate how things must be done. He is highly knowledgable about agile development (as his active blog proves) but his blog won't show what a friendly and knowledgeable guy he is. I highly recommend Kelly to anyone looking for a CTO or a seminar on agile/scrum practices - you won't be disappointed!”


“Kelly was a great colleague to work with - highly competent, trustworthy and generally a nice bloke.”


“Kelly was engaged as a Program Director on a complex business and technology transformation program for Suncorp Commercial Insurance. Kelly drew on his key capabilities and depth of experience to bring together disparate parties in a harmonised way, ensuring the initiate and concept phases of the program were understood and well formulated. Excellent outcome in a very short time frame. ”


“I worked with Kelly on many projects at IPC and I was always impressed with his approach to all of them, always ensuring the most commercially viable route was taken. He is great at managing relationships and it was always a pleasure working with him.”


“I worked with Kelly whilst at Thoughtworks and found him to be a most inspiring individual, his common-sense approach coupled with a deep understanding of Agile and business makes him an invaluable asset to any organisation. I can't recommend Kelly enough.”


“Kelly was a brilliant CTO and a great support to me in the time we worked together. I owe Kelly a great deal in terms of direction and how to get things done under sometimes difficult circumstances. Thanks Kelly.”
