Participant feedback

Take a look at the feedback we have received from our previous participants.

Andre, participant, LAx 2020

I was amazed how well the Slack channels worked as a "hallway track"! There were so many great discussions. Being part of all of them in a physical conference isn't possible, but with Slack I could catch up on them all.

I love it that this conference not only has a code of conduct and talk about inclusivity, but one can feel it's part of the DNA.

I liked the way it was scheduled with adequate time to recharge between talks. That made it much easier to focus and get the most out of them.

Remote access worked really well and allowed for more consumption of the content than I think would have been possible if it were physically hosted. It was also really well planned and hosted.

Andy, participant, LAx 2020

I found collaborative sessions more enjoyable than just listening to a presentation. I learned more of the soft skills that I can work on and improve during work activities. A significant amount of hard work goes into 1) organising and managing the event and 2) building and presenting the material - thank you

Again you were able to bring a diverse, inclusive, inspiring conference, with lots of opportunities to learn on subjects not directly related to Lean/Agile, but after listening them they do. If that makes any sense.

Lyndsay, participant, LAx 2020

Diversity of speakers. It was so good to see more under-represented groups speaking. The experience was fun and informative. Thanks for making this happen! Great work!

Absolutely top-notch program. All talks were good-to-great, and I found plenty of new ideas. And some confirmation;-)

I love the library and the Eat, Grow, Learn section. Also really pleased with the speedy upload of the recorded sessions <3

Johannes, participant, LAx 2020

Thank you! - A great amount of organisation and logistics clearly went in to make this the conference it was - I loved I could participate without travelling and I could attend as an individual and not feel excluded but connected to like minded humans. Connected.... it felt connected with the workshops and breakout rooms (it took a lot to switch on my camera and connect but my courage was worth it for the reward of connecting)
