Justin Celo and Jonathan Vojtush will talk about Psychological Safety in an Agile work environment and the ways in which it promotes or derails performance. Topics such as how we can work better to change mindset and culture, as well as how personalities, outside entities, and uninvested team members play a role in the success or failure of Scrum sessions and overall project success.

Join us from 5:30 to 6 for food and networking. The presentation starts at 6 PM.
